External Agents Serving TherapyAppointment Customers

This article is intended for:

  • People (External Billers or Agents) that need access to multiple providers or groups that use our system
  • This allows you to use one account to access multiple groups

What: TherapyAppointment offers a special account type for administrative staff that assist multiple, non-connected providers in the system with scheduling, billing, and other tasks.
  • Front Office Staff for a group of independent providers can use this type of account to access the accounts of a set of independent therapists who share office space.
  • Billing and Practice Management companies who are at a remote location can use these accounts to assist a variety of customers from one login.

External Agents who have a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) signed with the businesses that use TherapyAppointment. Even if you are employed as front office staff for a group of independent providers, we recommend that you have a signed with each independent provider you assist. This is absolutely necessary if you are a billing agent located elsewhere. 

If the group practice is a "true" group (i.e. an incorporated group practice with its own Tax ID or EIN) this type of account is not necessary; an "admin" account may be used instead by an employee of the group. In this situation, a signed BAA is not necessary under HIPAA.

There is no charge for using this type of account.
