Once patient statements are prepared, submit a batch for printing and mailing through Kareo's secure patient statement mailing service. There's no enrollment requirement and the service provides professional, easy-to-read, double-sided, color statements with an improved design that is not available through the self-printing option. View a sample patient statement or watch the video to learn more about how Kareo's mailing service can help you. 

For the cost of a patient statement with postage included, see the Patient Statement Mailing Service Fees section of the Pricing Policy. Charges incurred will be added to your next Kareo monthly invoice.

Note: If you have not already done so, configure the Patient Statement Options, and if your remit-to address is a P.O. Box, there are two additional steps to complete when configuring the settings.
