Health and Human Service Agencies
Millin has provided revenue cycle management services and software to health and human service agencies, since 1982. While many companies have increased the variety of software and services they provide, often stretching themselves thin, Millin has doubled down on its revenue cycle management expertise and software capabilities. Today, as Medicaid withdraws from the reimbursement business and hands it over to various Managed Care Organizations, our services and software have become not just valuable, but essential.
MillinPro vs. Your EMR Billing Module
While it can be tempting to use the billing module from your existing EMR system – in reality, many EMR vendors spend most of their resources on EMR enhancements, providing a relatively bare-bones billing system. The MillinPro system, on the other hand, is a user-friendly billing and reporting system, with many features that will ensure the billing is handled accurately and efficiently, and most importantly, will reduce your denial rate thus collecting more funds quicker. Struggling with accurate reports and receivables is a thing of the past with MillinPro. Whether you need to cross-over secondary claims, re-bill claims, adjust claims or post-retro-adjustments, MillinPro handles this seamlessly and captures all these transactions accurately. Eligibility verification can be done in batch or for specific individuals and best of all; our rules engine is continuously updated as rules and regulations change. MillinPro’s capability of integrating with the EMR of your choice via HL7 or API creates a seamless process. Most agencies that perform a cost-benefit analysis recognize that MillinPro will not only reduce time spent performing billing tasks but will also reduce write-offs, increase transparency and keep them compliant.
MillinPro System Implementation and Support
Implementing new systems can be challenging and burdensome, but not with MillinPro. All too often software vendors put the burden of implementation and configuration on the agency, disappearing quickly after the initial setup. At Millin, we do all the work for you. (clearinghouse setup, locations, providers, rate codes, fee schedules, etc.) While you are an active participant by providing us with the necessary information, the Millin implementation team handles everything, allowing your team to submit clean claims on your go-live date. Training sessions are typically divided into 2-hour sessions, as to not overwhelm your team with information, but to instead effectively teach and thoughtfully answer their questions. After go-live, our team is always available, with response times typically within 15 minute, 85% of the time.

We started our transition to Millin in 2017. The conversion process itself was smooth and we were able to shut down our legacy system and “go live” with Millin the next day. We run a very large system with billing in excess of $160 million. The transition process was extremely important to us. We received initial training and have had all of our subsequent questions answered in a very timely manner. The team at Millin is always willing to discuss and respond to our needs.
The system has a vast library of available reports and we have had great success in pulling required information from the system for financial and audit requirements.Jodi Mandel, Director of Revenue Management, YAI
On behalf of the New York State Office of Mental Health, I want to thank you for bringing several potential behavioral health managed care billing problems to our attention.

It has been about one year since we decided to contract with Millin Associates for our billing service needs. My only regret is that we did not switch (sooner) prior to the Managed Care implementation. The worry is gone from billing and the support is excellent. Thank you!Larry G. Fruit, Executive Director/CEO, Success Counseling Services, Inc.
I am writing to sincerely thank Millin Associates for bringing claim submission and adjudication issues to the attention of OASAS, OMH and DOH during the transition to Medicaid Managed Care in New York City.

We currently use the Millin Pro system for our Health Home and Mental Health Program. Our experience with the system has been extremely positive. The workflow and user interface is exceptionally well designed. The rules engine and issue tracker are very impressive features. Above all their support staff is very responsive and extremely knowledgeable with the various billing rules. This is critical to us as we are facing so many regulatory and managed care changes. The investment in the Millin system is definitely paying off for us.Shrikant Vardhan, Senior Accountant, Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers
We implemented the MillinPro system in our clinic and the results have been quite impressive. We operate an Article 16 and Article 28 clinic for the DD population, and the billing processes for each have their complexities. Their implementation team worked with us every step of the way, to make the transition as smooth as possible. Their development team is excellent, they really have an understanding of our needs and have been most accommodating. The various reports are great, and very flexible. The issue tracker is a true innovation, and in general the software allows us to track all claims efficiently. The result has been a great improvement in cash flow, as well as in maximizing reimbursement. They really have come up with a great product, which they continue to improve.Nechemia Schorr, Controller, HASC
