Philosophy

The acupuncture insurance billing support network, “The Network”, is committed to its members to be accurate and ethical in its advice and information. Its’ personnel are trained and committed to assure members that the information they receive is will result in the correct and maximum amount of reimbursement for the services provided. Information is always backed by law or regulation with appropriate references to ensure accuracy. We understand how difficult it is with all the constant changes in insurance. That’s why we dedicate 100% of our time to keep members up to date. The Network is dedicate to give members the highest quality experience possible.

Overview

The AAC Info Network Network was borne out of the need for providers and their staff to have immediate support for day to day questions and problems. Howard Ross, the founder, saw it as the next logical step from his insurance seminars. He first coined it his “Hotline” where doctors and staff could consult by phone with “ROSS-TRAINED” insurance specialists. He knew from the multiple inquiries on a daily basis that a weekend seminar could not address the issues as up to the minute as a call in service could. The Network offers a members’ only “call in” line where expert acupuncture insurance billing support is given in CPT, ICD-9, RVS, and HCPCS coding as well state specific laws and regulations. The Network not only has expertise in general health insurance but also in workers’ compensation, personal injury, and Medicare. Members have access to problem insurance correspondence with patients, insurance companies, and attorneys. Additionally many providers who are looking for changes to the laws, codes or other trends depend on the Network to keep them informed and up to date. With this type of service the Network became “The” source of information not only to individual providers but also chiropractic and acupuncture colleges as well as medical, chiropractic, and acupuncture professional state associations and groups. Because of the wide variety of calls and questions the Network personnel are quickly apprised to trends in billing and reimbursement. In order to facilitate this knowledge in a timely manner to all its members the Network added a members’ only newsletter Network Notes which is a quarterly publication. This newsletter is filled with information on billing, documentation and collection. It particularly focuses on new rulings or changes to the procedures, laws, and rules governing billing and reimbursement. The Network is not only a place to have your questions answered but also can be your eyes and ears to the world of health care reimbursement.
