Medical billing service providers act as the bridge between the physician, the patient, and the insurance company. When the patient seeks medical consultation or receives medical treatment, they pay for it either in cash or will be paid by their insurance provider. In cases when the services received are covered by their insurance company, the physician must file a claim in order to get paid.
