Anyone involved in ABA billing is aware of the many added obstacles involved in receiving proper payment for their claims.

As experts in ABA revenue cycle management, MBH cuts through the obstacles and ensures that your practice is collecting full payment for services rendered.


By far more than other healthcare providers

ABA practices are subject to more onerous and frequently-changing rules at the federal and state levels as well as frequently-modified directives and guidelines of insurance carriers. Staying abreast of it all is a real challenge. MBH helps ABA providers remain compliant and improve profitability, thus freeing you to focus on patient care and practice growth.

Authorization Management

Our experience in pre-authorization and authorization management will reduce costly appeals, expedite payments, and ensure that renewals are processed before expiration. Because we are experts in each carrier’s methods, we can process claims with the proper clinical support documentation on the initial submission.

Claim Scrubbing

Claim scrubbing also expedites payments by reducing claim errors and the potential for denial. It involves validating data including patient, insured, provider, and insurer information and codes for diagnosis, procedure, and revenue. Claim scrubbing also reduces the risk of underpayments and post-payment audits.

Practice-specific Queries

MBH can establish custom rules for your practice that will expedite payments. We can run practice-specific queries to identify items that require attention before claims are submitted.

Claims Submission

We submit claims electronically using state-of-the-art software that is integrated with the clearinghouse. This allows us to be on top of issues that ariseand address them before they get to the carrier.

ERA Posting

Our system electronically posts all details of electronic remittances from the carrier.

Denials, Appeals, and Wrong Track Payments

Approximately 80% of ABA claims submitted would be wrongly paid if they were not tracked. Our automated tracking system allows us to monitor the progress of every claim and intervene when necessary to expedite processing. If denied, we process appeals directly with the carrier; when difficulties arise we contact the state to help resolve the issue.


Our credentialing services help ensure faster, easier network enrollment for faster reimbursements. We also keep track of expiration dates and alert you when credentialing updates are due.

Carrier Rate Negotiations

MBH’s professional negotiation team is experienced in working with insurance carriers to secure fair reimbursement rates for your practice.
