Are you an ABA services provider?

Have you ever had a day when an insurance company was calling you with an audit, parents asking you about a payment plan, and one of your staff called in sick a second day in a row? Don’t you often feel overwhelmed and defeated by the number of things calling your attention? Don’t you wonder how you’re going to be great at what you do when you are bogged down by all the admin tasks?

Wouldn’t you rather spend your time working with kids who need your help than filing insurance claims?

You might think you don’t have a choice. But you do.

We know because we’ve been in your place. We know your pain. And we have a solution.

Your pain is our problem to solve

As an ABA provider, you are passionate about what you do. You’ve dedicated yourself to helping kids with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families – because you care. You’ve studied and mastered ABA service delivery. You look forward to working with your clients and seeing them succeed in life. Their success is your success.

What you weren’t prepared for is the amount of background stuff you’d have to deal with. You are not trained to deal with all the financial aspects of running an ABA practice: billing, insurance, authorizations, contracting, and much more.  Even if you were, why would you want to waste your time being on hold with insurance providers? We know you’d rather provide care for your clients.

Imagine a world where you get to do what you do best – serve kids with ASD and their families – and dump on someone else all the tasks you dread doing. We are that someone else. Your pain is our problem.

We want to free you of all your administrative headaches because we know they get in the way of your work. And your work is what’s most important. That’s why you got into the field in the first place – to help kids with ASD and their families live their best lives. We want to help you achieve just that.

Who are we?

We are your paperwork ghostbusters. We are your clean-up crew. We are your missing ELEMENT.

In more technical terms, we are the people who partner with you on revenue cycle management (RCM).

How do we know what your hurdles are, and why do we believe we can help you overcome them?

That’s because we have been owner-operators of ABA businesses ourselves. We know the ins and outs of your job. We know what gets in the way of effective service delivery. We want to remove those obstacles for you.

Our team has vast combined experience and deep expertise in all aspects of running an ABA practice. We were the ones answering audit calls from insurance companies while fielding questions from parents while dealing with staffing issues. We know what gets in the way of your optimal function. And we have the tools and know-how to make your operations run smoothly.

You focus on delivering the best ABA service you can. We take care of the behind-the-scenes aspects. Our ultimate goal is your ultimate goal: to make the lives of families dealing with ASD diagnosis easier. For us, that means making the lives of the ABA service providers easier.

How do we make your life as an ABA service provider easier?

Our services

We partner with you to listen to your needs so we can deeply understand the specific RCM support you need.

The cycle starts at the very beginning – at the first point of contact with your patients. From that point on, we make sure your cash flow is consistent. We set up the most optimal frequency of how you collect money from the hard-earned services you provide. We make sure you never have disruptions in your cash flow.

These are our core services:

  • Authorizations
  • Verifying benefits and insurance coverage
  • Financial counseling for your families
  • Billing and claims processing
  • Data analytics
  • Credentialing
  • Insurance Contracting
  • Audit & compliance support
  • BCBA recruiting (through partner organizations)
  • BCBA licensing

Our secret weapon

What sets us apart is our commitment to help you. We are willing to do more and go farther than other companies. We bring our own billing and operational superpowers – we’re the Robin to your Batman – so you, the real superhero, can help more children.

That includes taking on tasks others wouldn’t. We’ll help with whatever is keeping you up at night.

For instance, most ABA billing vendors don’t address financial issues with parents. Your admin team has to do it. How well-prepared is your staff to explain insurance benefits to families in compassionate and direct ways that they will understand? Do they have the time to do it?

Or, let’s say you’ve just gone through a recruiting process, making sure you hired someone who is a values-aligned fit for your practice. And then you find out they are not credentialed with the right insurance payers. Do you have time to go through this process with a CAQ agent, and obtain their NPI number?

Our secret weapon: we do MORE, FASTER, and more EFFICIENTLY.  All with the highest integrity.

Bottom line

For your ABA practice to operate at its full potential, you can’t be bogged down by the minutiae of administrative tasks. Let us take care of those for you.

You want to operate at the highest and best use of your leadership:  delivering the highest-quality services.  Allow us to bring the tools, best practices, and talent, so you can achieve your mission.

What will you do with more time?  Take the next step on quality assurance processes that you’ve always wanted to implement?  Use your OBM expertise to improve your organization’s supervisory systems?  Grow your practice to serve more clients?  Attract values-aligned staff?  Present at conferences that you haven’t had time to attend?

We want to help you do all that … and more.

You deserve to:

  • sleep better at night
  • collect cash from the services you’ve worked so hard to provide
  • have a better quality of life
  • improve the lives of the families you serve

The bottom line: an unburdened, well-functioning team can help more families. A better-run practice will increase your revenue. Everyone wins.
