Vanessa Best Takes On Medical Billing’s Paper Tiger
Processing of medical claims nationwide reached 6 billion in 1993, forcing doctors to turn to specialists for forms processing. Vanessa Best has worked as a healthcare professional for over fourteen years specializing in Hospital & Physician Billing, Claims Adjudication, Insurance Verification and Managed Care Programs.
With this experience, she decided to start her own home-based medical billing business, Precision HealthCare Consultants. She had a four month old child and wanted to spend more time at home. She also had hopes of increasing her income. Her opportunity came when a physician left her hospital for private practice. She was able to secure a contract giving her $1,200 a month on that single customer. That got her started on her home business career.
Equipment needs consisted of a computer, fax machine and medical billing software that meets Medicaid and Medicare requirements. She was able to start her business with approximately $5,000 of capital. With that she conducts electronic medical billing and collections for physicians, offers consultations regarding managed care enrollment, and provides on-site training for support staff.
Academically, she works as a faculty member at New York’s City University. She has made proposals and set up curriculum for several new medical billing programs. With this level of experience, now Vanessa has expanded as an authorized vendor for medical computer software.
She attributes her success to aggressive marketing, directed at physicians setting up new private practices, “And if your clients are pleased,” she says “word-of-mouth will roll in more customers.” Obviously it’s worked for her.
