*Consumer*-oriented medical billing accounting software?

Hi, after wrangling my businesses and home finance into professionally-acceptable shape by devoting about two hours a day to Quickbooks data entry and review, I come to the heart of darkness: our medical and insurance billing records.
The problem seems to be that there is no industry standard for many of the things that are normal outside of medical bills, so it's impossible to predict how long it all take insurance to pay on a visit, what percentage will be paid, or how that payment will be reflected in the insurance carrier's statements.
Compounding this are iffy billing practices on the part of the providers - occasionally visits are not forwarded to insurance for billing for unreasonably long periods of time.
The end result is that using Quickbooks to try to track these expenses at the line-item level is impractical.
Is there an accounting package oriented to the home consumer which is designed expect these factors?
