Pros thumbs-up

In my initial months using Kareo Billing, I found it advantageous that the program enabled Medicare client billing and allowed for tracking electronic remittance payments with ease.

Cons thumbs-up

Sadly, it was in late April when I discovered a significant issue. No claims had been submitted since January 2023. The program's workflow involves creating claims on Kareo Clinical, which are then sent to Kareo Billing for clinician review before submission for payment. Despite multiple attempts to seek assistance from Customer Service, it wasn't until May 8, 2023, that nearly 600 claims were finally submitted in a single day. Regrettably, due to the 60-90 day submission window being exceeded for services rendered in January, February, and in some cases in March, I am unable to receive payment for those services. This has significantly impacted my income.
