Frequently Asked Questions
Are prices per–practice, per–provider, or per–user?
Our standard monthly subscription fee for your first module is $300 per physician provider. Each additional module is 50% off of that price. There is additional, lower pricing for non-physician providers (i.e., PA, NP, PT, etc.). You can add additional users to the account who support that provider. There are no additional per–practice or per–user fees and no set-up or cancellation fees. For example, if there were two providers in an office, the fee for a single module would be $600 per month. (This pricing is an example based on our standard monthly subscription with no discounts or other promotions that may apply with specials or with our partner applications.) For more detail on pricing, visit our Plans & Pricing page.
Are there any setup fees or long-term contracts?
No. There are no setup fees and no long-term contract. You simply pay as you go on a month-to-month basis and can cancel at any time.
I see that you have different plans with different prices. How do those work and what do I need to know to choose the right plan?
It is best that you get a free consultation with one of our Solution Consultants to identify your needs so you can choose the right plan for your practice.
How long does it take to setup?
You can sign up now and start using your account immediately. You can begin sending electronic claims to all commercial insurance companies within 48 hours. A few payers, such as Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, may require signup to file an insurance-specific enrollment form before you can submit electronic claims. Once these payers process your enrollment form, typically within 5-30 days, you can begin sending electronic claims to these payers immediately through Kareo.
Can you import my data into Kareo?
Yes. Kareo does offer Data Import services. We are able to import a variety of data, ranging from patient demographics to insurance lists. There may be a charge for our import services, which will depend on the kind of data we will be importing. The price generally ranges from $250 to $1500, depending on the volume of data and time that it takes to transfer. We are able to complete most projects within 5-7 business days. You can provide your data in a variety of formats, including a Comma–Separated Value (.CSV) or Microsoft Excel (.XLS), Text (.TXT), Access Database (MDB), etc. Alternatively, if you are unable to export/acquire your data, we can remotely access your system and attempt to acquire your data for you at no additional charge.
If for some reason, I would like to discontinue my subscription, can I export my data?
Yes. If you are not completely satisfied, you can export your data at any time at no additional charge. You can save a copy of your data to your local computer in standard file formats, such as Comma–Separated Value (.CSV) or Microsoft Excel (.XLS). This provides you with the flexibility to store a backup copy of your data on your own computer or take your data with you if you ever decide to cancel your subscription to Kareo.
When do you start billing me for my Kareo PM account?
Subscription fees are billed a month in advance of service, except for the first month when you are billed a prorated fee based on the number of days you had access to Kareo. We accept payment by direct debit to your checking account or by credit card including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. Payments are due on the tenth day of each month. A minimum of one provider charge will be billed when you sign up.
Where can I review your agreement and pricing details?
Do I need to set up an account with a clearinghouse? Are there additional fees?
There is no need to set up an account with a clearinghouse, and there are no additional fees for electronic claims and remittance services. Our Enrollments team will assist you in enrolling with the clearinghouses used by Kareo. Kareo offers an integrated platform that includes cloud-based medical billing software for your practice combined with electronic connectivity to insurers, all provided under one affordable fee structure.
How soon can I begin sending electronic claims?
You can begin sending electronic claims to all commercial insurance companies, such as Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, and many others, within 48 hours of signing up for Kareo. A few payers, such as Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, may require signup to file an insurance-specific enrollment form before you can submit electronic claims. Once these payers process your enrollment form, typically within 5-30 days, you can begin sending electronic claims to these payers immediately through Kareo.
What type of support can I expect after signing up?
We offer a complete onboarding and training program with your subscription. Our team will be available to answer your questions as you complete the essential steps of your onboarding including watching our training videos, setting up a provider, enrolling in electronic claims, sending your first batch of electronic claims, and having your claims accepted by at least one major insurance company.
Upon sign up, you will be assigned a Success Coach who will be with you through your entire setup process. In addition, our Kareo Training Specialists will help guide you through our training webinars. For more information visit https://helpme.kareo.com/01_Kareo_PM
What kind of support can I receive once I've completed the implementation program?
Kareo offers convenient self–service customer support resources at no additional charge with every subscription. This includes online help, user manuals, guides, training videos, knowledge bases, and our user community forum. You also receive ongoing help with any electronic claims or electronic remittance enrollment questions at no additional charge. If you require any other type of help from our customer support team after your first 30 days, we also offer email, chat, and phone support options.
What days and hours is your support available?
Can I process credit card payments from patients using Kareo PM?
Yes, we offer you the flexibility to accept credit cards online, over the phone, or storing patient credit cards on file. It’s simple and affordable to set up an account and start processing credit cards in Kareo. The payments are processed through a merchant account, deposited directly into your bank account, and posted to Kareo PM. This can be used in conjunction with or without a card swiper. There are no set up or monthly fees, no contracts, and you can cancel anytime. It allows you to accept all forms of card types, including FSA, HSA, debit, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Rates are per transaction as follows: Credit card flat rate: 2.75% + $0.30 tax per transaction
Can I use Kareo to submit electronic claims to all insurance companies?
You can submit electronic claims to more than 4,000 insurers through Kareo. We support Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, and Tricare in every state. We also support major national insurers, such as Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and United Healthcare, as well as local IPAs and smaller insurers. To find out if you can submit electronic claims to a specific government payer or commercial insurance company, check out the Kareo medical billing software payer list.
Which insurance paper and electronic claim formats are supported by Kareo?
We currently support professional claim formats, used for provider charges, using the CMS 1500 paper claim format and ANSI 837p electronic claim format. We also support institutional claim formats, both UB-04 and 837I, for Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC), Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF), and Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (ORF).
Can I use Kareo to bill insurance companies for Out-of-Network providers?
It is our experience that each insurance company may have a different policy regarding how they reimburse for medical claims associated with Out-of-Network providers and the level of electronic services (electronic claims, remittance, and eligibility) they support with Out-of-Network providers. These varying policies are independent of the medical software or clearinghouse used to bill them. So we recommend that you call each insurance company to receive a definitive answer regarding their claim reimbursement process and the electronic services they will allow as it relates to Out-of-Network providers.
What are the system requirements for Kareo?
You need a modern Windows PC with a high speed Internet connection such as DSL, cable modem, or T1. The minimum requirements are a Windows PC with a 1 GHz Intel Pentium III processor, Microsoft Windows XP operating system (Service Pack 2 or higher), 1024x768 screen resolution, 17 inch monitor, and 256 MB RAM. We recommend, however, that you use a PC with a 2 GHz Intel Pentium 4, Pentium D, or Core processor, 1280x1024 screen resolution, 19 inch monitor or larger, and 1GB RAM.
Can I run Kareo Practice Management on a Mac?
Kareo is a native Windows-based application that you install onto your computer in order to access your online patient and medical billing information. For Macs, we recommend using virtualization to access a Windows-based application such as Kareo. Virtualization software such as Parallels is availble on the apple website http://www.apple.com/shop/product/HJ332LL/A/parallels-desktop-11-for-mac
