For a number of years now, MHM has argued paper invoices should be avoided.
We have instead taken advantage of the offer from medical insurance companies. We submit invoices for medical services electronically.
It has saved a fortune in postage costs.
They are produced much quicker and cheaper than in paper form.
The amazing thing is that some private medical insurance companies still allow paper invoices to be sent to them.
Self-funders are different.
I’m still not convinced sending an invoice by email is the right thing to do. I would love to be proved wrong though.
Having said that, there is no reason – providing you have called the patient first – for an invoice for excess and shortfall cant be emailed. We do.
MHM supports those insurance companies who insist as part of them granting recognition that invoices to them are electronic only.
