Part 3. Insurance payer enrollment process

Agenda: Complete your enrollments to simplify insurance billing

In Part 3, we'll review how to complete the enrollment process with your insurance payers. There are two types of enrollments in SimplePractice. One for filing claims electronically and one for receiving electronic payment reports.

Some enrollments are required while others are recommended to help streamline your insurance billing. For example, enrolling in payment reports will allow the insurance payer to electronically communicate status updates with SimplePractice. This way, you don't need to manually add insurance payments from the EOB.

In Part 4, we'll create a session for an insurance client and show how to create an insurance claim after that session is complete. We'll also review creating multiple claims at once, so you can do all your claim filing in a batch at the end of the week. Finally, we'll cover how to track a claim you've submitted.
