Capture Billing

Update: August 2011

Get Inspired


Welcome…

We’ve been busy here at Capture helping practices with their medical billing but I always like to find time to put out some information that will help not only our clients but medical practices throughout the country. One thing we have done this month is start an online publication called the Medical Billing and Coding News. We sort through information from all over the web and compile it in one place to make it easy for physicians, practice managers and medical billers to find. I and my staff use this information too so we can stay abreast of the changing healthcare landscape. Below are a couple of items you might find interesting. Check them out when you have a chance. Have a good week.
