SMART Health Claims Resource Center

Billing is necessary for the future of local health. Every local health department is faced with the challenge of protecting the health of their communities with lower funding and limited resources. On the horizon, health reform legislation will increase Medicaid enrollment causing the demand for services offered by public health clinics to rise significantly. Medicaid members, along with larger portions of underinsured, uninsured and the insured who cannot procure vaccinations at private practices, are leading to the creation of a growing population that is dependent upon services that are quickly losing steam.


Billing public and private insurers for community health services is your opportunity to develop a significant source of sustainable revenue. Effective billing programs can capture revenue from Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance that will not only alleviate funding issues but will allow for staffing increases and an expansion of community health services.
