MillinPro Billing System

“With the transition from the CARE to TMHP system for Texas I/DD programs, many agencies are experiencing a substantial increase in time spent submitting claims and working denials/rejections. Thankfully, there is a better and more efficient way to manage the billing process.

Millin has over 40 years of I/DD and Behavioral Health billing experience and expertise. We can help increase efficiencies and reduce or even eliminate denials/rejections. Our cutting-edge MillinPro rules-based revenue cycle management system can integrate with the EMR/EVV and accounting system of your choice. Creating a best-of-breed system environment reduces risk and increases revenue.

In addition, MillinPro is already a TMHP-approved system. There are over 350 agencies that are currently taking advantage of MillinPro. Last year over $3 billion worth of claims were successfully processed through MillinPro. A number of agencies use EMR/EVV systems that have billing modules, yet they choose to integrate the MillinPro billing system, recognizing the value of our billing expertise and advanced technology is unparalleled and provides a higher ROI.

In addition, many agencies also choose to outsource their entire billing process to Millin since keeping up with the ever-changing regulatory requirements and complicated payer rules has become a lot more challenging.”.

FYI-MillinPro currently partners with some of the current Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems that are being utilized by many of our HCS/TxHmL providers in the state of Texas           (i.e.Therap and TaskMaster Pro)

FYI-Millin Pro will also be available to meet them in person as a vendor during the PPAT (Private Providers of Texas) Conference this September of 2022.  Please come and meet them in person for more assistance!
