3 Reasons Why You Should be on the eAssist Platform
It’s no secret that eAssist is a preferred place for dental billers! Our 2022 Great Place To Work Certification speaks volumes about how happy our dental billing contractors are working with the eAssist platform. But what is it about eAssist that retains such a vast number of happy contractors supporting their offices? We are proud to share with you the various resources and benefits that eAssist provides for our independent contractors who use the eAssist platform. We will highlight only the top benefits and resources we offer our independent contractors because there are too many to lay out in one blog post!
So, why do our dental billers love the eAssist platform?
You are your own boss!
One of the greatest benefits and perks of working with the eAssist platform is you are in control! Our dental billers set their own hours, they can pick up as much work as they would like, and they have the ability to work remotely. This means no more hours stuck in traffic on your way to and from work. Without having set hours in the day, you are required to work every day of the week, you have much more flexibility to do the things that you need to do.
Many of our dental billers that use the eAssist platform have families. Now you can make time for work and family instead of making your family work around your work schedule. As long as you are regularly communicating with your team and supporting your office appropriately, you have the flexibility to be your own boss and work how and when you want! One of our dental billers loves working with the eAssist platform so much that she is living her dream:
“This is just the change needed to stay in the dental industry and do away with all of the headaches of hiring, firing, scheduling, treatment presentation, phones ringing, dealing with cancelations, filling the schedule, working the aging with countless interruptions, the list goes on and on. I’m living my dream quietly in my office every day without all of those headaches and let me tell you, I DO NOT MISS THEM! Thank you, Dr Anderson, for creating such an amazing place to call my career!” – Lisa Carrington
While all our dental billers work with the eAssist platform remotely, some may be concerned this would alienate them or they would be lonely without having a team in the office to work with each day. Even though our dental billers work in the platform remotely, they are all connected together so you are really never alone.
You will always have a team of success consultants supporting your office with you. If you ever have questions or concerns or need assistance, you have the eAssist nation ready to help! And because each contractor can work wherever they wish, finding someone to help in the wee hours of the morning or late at night is not a hard task.
Dental Billers that use the eAssist platform are highly skilled because they have access to exceptional resources, including Dental Zing. Dental Zing provides virtual dental continuing education that focuses on industry leaders and voices that resonate with dental billers’ needs. They offer live and on-demand courses specifically tailored to help you grow in your role or business. The course instructors prioritize the topics that dental billers are most interested in, providing a unique learning experience. These courses help eAssist platform users to improve their performance, enabling them to expand their businesses and effectively support their offices.
You can work in-office and with the eAssist platform!
If you aren’t ready to take your dental billing business to the next level, many of our dental billers continue working in their dental office while picking up one office under the eAssist platform. It typically takes some time to fully understand the “eAssist way” of managing dental billing remotely for an office, including reporting and communication. This is why some dental billers choose to start off small while still keeping their role at a physical dental office.
However, once you have a good grasp of things and are meeting the Brand Promises and satisfying your clients, you can start expanding your business one office at a time. It’s up to you to decide when you want to fully commit to eAssist, whether it’s after working with a few clients or with four or five offices. The great thing about this is that you have complete control over the number of clients you serve and your level of engagement within the eAssist platform.
Practice Booster is not only a valued resource for our clients but also for our dental billers! Our dental billers need to stay “in the know” with everything about insurance codes to support their offices in making sure they collect 100% of what is rightfully owed to them from the insurance companies. Using Practice Booster helps our dental billers when they need to look up an insurance code, or when they realize that a code has changed.
Practice Booster’s Coding with Confidence is an excellent guide for the proper coding of each dental procedure. It provides comprehensive coding tools to ensure that claims are paid accurately. This is without a doubt a must-have resource for our dental billers.
As mentioned earlier, these are just a few of the many benefits and resources that eAssist provides to our dental billing contractors. Whether it be by having the freedom and flexibility of owning your own business or the specific resources such as Dental Zing (and more!), our dental billing contractors have everything they need right at their fingertips.
