How do I get my paid claims transferred to by bank account?Answered
I keep getting notices that my insurance claims were paid but it's just numbers on my screen.
Am I supposed to receive a check in the mail? Or can I electronically transfer the paid claims to my bank account from my Simple Practice account?
Hi Vasily, I'd be happy to help. SimplePractice doesn't see or touch the money you receive from insurance payers - you'll receive a check in the mail or a direct deposit, depending on how the insurance payer typically pays you. SimplePractice's Payment Reports simply notifies you when claims have been paid, with the payment amount. Let me know if you have any additional questions about this, or anything else SimplePractice. I'm here to help.
Hi Gay, as Gillian mentioned, SimplePractice doesn't process insurance payments for our customers. We do, however, allow customers to enroll in Payment Reports (ERAs). You can see all recorded client and insurance payments in Billing > Export Transactions, expand the date range to include all of 2020, generate the report and then download it. If you haven't been manually entering insurance payments, or aren't enrolled in Payment Reports, insurance payments won't appear in your SimplePractice account, or in Transactions Report.
I'm happy to explain Payment Reports to you! Enrolling in Payment Reports will not redirect automated insurance payouts to your SimplePractice account via direct deposit, or electronic payments. Rather, enrolling in Payment Reports will automate your insurance bookkeeping in SimplePractice without any transfer of funds occurring through SimplePractice. As soon as an insurance payer has posted payments corresponding to claims you filed, they generate a report.
You'll still receive payment in the way you initially arranged when you got credentialed. For more information on how you'd receive payments from insurance companies outside of SimplePractice, read our policy here: When I submit claims via SimplePractice, how will I receive reimbursement from the payer?. I also suggest checking out our Help Center's detailed explanation of Payment reports (ERAs). If you're interested in enrolling for Payment Reports and automating your insurance billing, here's a great guide on how to get started: How do I submit an enrollment to file claims or receive payment reports?
