Chapter 6: Insurance & Billing to a 3rd-Party

In our 6th and final chapter, we’re diving into the wonderful world of insurance billing! Jane helps your clinic manage insurance claims and allows you to send invoices to 3rd-party payers.

Note: The features covered in this chapter are only available to clinics on our Insurance Plan.

Managing insurance claims can work a bit differently depending on where you are located. We’ve divided this final chapter by location, so if you are one of our lovely US clinics, skip on down to the US Billing section to start learning :)

Insurance & Billing to a 3rd-Party

Jane helps you submit and manage insurance claims by paper or through an online portal. To insure visits, there are a couple of things that first need to be set up in your Jane account. The video below will walk you through the full workflow of insurance billing, and shows how all the pieces come together once implemented at your clinic.

Note: The set up of insurance will need to be completed by a member of your team with Full Access.

Let’s review the work flows that are most common for front-desk staff members:

Creating Patient Claims

When you’re ready to start saving your patients’ insurance information, we call this ‘creating patient claims’.

To create a patient claim, you can begin from two main areas; The Patient’s Profile or from their Appointment.

Learn the steps to to creating a patient claim in the following guide:

Managing the Insurer Invoice

We have many Jane users working with online portals to bill insurance companies directly for their client’s visits.

This might be Medavie Blue Cross, Pacific Blue Cross, Telus E-Claims (including WSIB), HCAI etc.

If you are billing to the portal immediately, you are able to click the blue insurer name at the top of the appointment panel to open the Claim Management Screen:

From here you can launch the portal using the shortcut button and you can see all the info you would need to submit through the portal on a single screen. Hooray!

There are also some great tips in the following guides that will help with managing claim submissions:

Working with Paper Insurer Invoices

💡Jane Tip: If you haven’t experienced working with two screens you might fall in love once you try it. Most computers have a second port you can just plug another monitor in. It’s glorious and every administrator’s dream.

Adding Billing Codes & Booking an Insured Visit

Once you’ve created and saved a patient claim, you can start insuring your patient’s visit(s). The following guide provides a great overview of our recommended work flow for adding billing codes and claims to patient visits. There are also some pro tips (i.e. how to copy a previous visit’s insurance info) in this guide that will help you down the road:

Adding Billing Codes & Insuring a Patient Visit

Superbills

You can create a superbill in Jane for any patients who would like to submit the document for insurance reimbursement (so you don’t have to, phew!).

You can generate a superbill for any appointment (paid or unpaid) after you’ve added billing codes. As a reminder, you can add billing codes to the Insurance Info section of an appointment from the Schedule.

Once you have added all of your billing and diagnosis codes to your patient’s visit, you can either Print, Generate a PDF, or Email a superbill to your patient.
