Let’s face it: dealing with insurance companies is a drag. Because it can be tedious and sometimes involve hours of phone calls with (often unhelpful) insurance agents, the task of getting the reinubursemed for out-of-network claims often falls to the bottom of the to-do list. If this is a familiar story, you may want to take a look at the new easy to use app we discovered with the help from one of our patients. It makes getting that reimbursement painless so you can stop putting if off and starting getting money back faster.
Recently we purchased a subscription to Osmind, an app that helps you get money back from insurance for your psychiatry and therapy visits. For our patients who were previously using an app called Better or Franklin, Osmind is very similar.
Using Osmind is simple:
- 1. Ask your clinician to sign you up for Osmind. You will then receive a text message with information on how to download the app.
- 2. Upload your superbill. When you receive your invoice from Gateway Psychiatric Services each month, go to Osmind and upload a copy. Osmind will file your claim with your insurance.
- 3. Get your check in the mail. Your claim will get applied to your deductible, or if you’ve already met it, you’ll get a check from insurance.
