All billing agencies promise reimbursement increases, why are you better?

Increasing reimbursement is dependent on your current collection rate. If your account receivable is very high we can significantly decrease it very quickly, but there are many variables to consider. The billing function itself involves more than just processing claims. We look at billing from the time the patient makes an appointment with you to the time the check is in the bank. Follow-up, feedback and working with the doctors makes a big difference and that is what we do better.

Are there any initial delays in billing claims if we start with your company?

No. If we have some advance notice we can have the electronic billing (Medicare & Commercial) setup prior to start. We like to allow two weeks, as this process is out of our control. In the interim we bill on paper immediately

How can I be sure all claims are being handled properly?

1) The money will be in your bank account.
