FAQs ABOUT DENTAL BILLING CONTRACTOR JOBS SUPPORTED BY THE eASSIST PLATFORM
Upon submitting the application and passing the initial assessments, you will be invited to record your one-way interview(s) via SparkHire. Those recordings will then go to our team of hiring panelists. Once approved, you will be sent our Non-Disclosure Agreement, Background Authorization, blank W9, and HIPAA agreement to sign. Once the NDA & BA have been returned, you’ll be invited to create an eAssist hub login & gain access to the 17 required vetting modules. While you’re working on those we’ll also send for your background check to be completed via BackTrack. Once all of these pieces are completed and approved, you will be sent your final contract. If you do not pass any of these steps along the way, you will be notified via email from a member of our Talent Management team.
Here is the Hiring Process Checklist for your reference:
You’ll be joining eAssist as an independent contractor. This means you will receive a 1099 for your commissions at the end of the year rather than a W2. You can start by simply obtaining an EIN, and can also get set up as an LLC or S Corp. We HIGHLY recommend talking to a CPA that can help you understand the tax benefits of each of these in your specific state. eAssist does require that you have a number other than your SSN, and your tax professional will thank you for keeping your business separate too! Here is a link with more information about setting up your business:
One of the perks of being an independent contractor is the freedom & flexibility to set your own schedule. eAssist has some specific Brand Promises that we make to the offices we serve. You may be able to meet those brand promises for an office working eight hours a week, or eight hours a day. You may prefer working early in the morning, or later in the evening. As long as you’re meeting the Brand Promises, and communicating regularly with your team, you decide when you work! There are a few outliers including Patient Billing and Full Schedule that do require you to have some specific “business hour” availability to contact patients.
The offices we serve are billed according to their monthly insurance collections. Because of this, we are compensated in arrears. So, the insurance collected in January is billed & compensated in February, and so on. Our pay dates are the 15th and last day of each month. Here is an example as well as a link explaining in more detail about how our dental billing Success Consultants are paid:
- Office total monthly insurance collections: $65,000
- They are invoiced 3.5% ($1,365)
- 60% to SC team ($1,545)
- 40% to eAssist
- Your split (If 50/50) $682.50
- You get paid $250 on the 15th of the following month & $432.50 on the last day
*this does not reflect any Balanced Score Card or Tenure bonus you may be eligible for.

You’ll want to make sure that you communicate your plans with your teammate and Team Leader in advance. It is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that your client opportunities are taken care of, that being said, there are several ways to see to this. One option is to take work with you. Many eAssisters love to travel and as long as you have access to reliable internet; load up that laptop and hit the road! You can also “take turns” with your teammate; you cover them for a few days for their vacation, and they’ll cover you for a few days. You can also find another trusted eAssister that you can have added to your office for a specified time to complete your responsibilities. Zulip is a great place to ask about this. You would pay them an agreed upon amount out of your own pocket. eAssist cannot offer any assistance in finding coverage for you. The flexibility of these choices is another perk of owning your own business!
Currently, we can offer opportunities to most newly onboarded Success Consultants within their first week. There are many variables to consider. Software knowledge, for example. If you are proficient in a software that eAssist is currently lacking available contractors for – you may even be contacted while you’re still in the vetting process to be encouraged to finish ASAP for an office that needs your expertise. On the other hand, if your only experience is with a software that we don’t have any offices currently onboarding with, you may experience a longer wait. In addition to software experience — your own preference can dictate how soon you accept an assignment. That’s right, you don’t have to accept the first opportunity that is offered to you. At eAssist, we truly want you to be successful, so we ask a lot of questions on the Client Opportunity Request (COR) form about your preferences: Do you prefer posting, or aging? A small-medium office, or a large office? Are you comfortable working with DSOs or Medicaid? All of these things and more are factored into you accepting that first assignment. Some great advice to getting your name out there is to be active on Zulip, our Leadership Specialists and Team Leaders are looking there every day!
Many of us still work(ed) our jobs in-office. You will wait 30 days after beginning your first opportunity before you are offered another. We have found it takes about that long to understand the ‘eAssist way” of working remote dental billing for an office, as well as the ins and outs of reporting and communications. As long as Brand Promises are being met, and your office and teams are happy and content with your work, you can begin building your business one office at a time after that! Some eAssisters work one or two client opportunities with eAssist and also work in a physical office, some decide to take the leap to fully engaged with eAssist after four or five offices, that decision, and number of clients you serve is completely up to you.
