Helping EMS Providers Increase Cash Flow, Reduce Administrative Burdens

EMS Billing Services

Comprised of former EMS practitioners and CPAs, our team understands the business challenges facing fire and EMS agencies. We work closely with our clients to develop EMS billing and technology solutions that help reduce administrative overhead and optimize collections. We bridge the gap between operational knowledge and technology so that EMS providers like you can deliver the highest levels of performance – for emergency care and financial responsibility – to your communities and clients.

Our expert coders are certified by the National Academy of Ambulance Coding and the American Academy of Procedural Coders, and they use the most advanced technology to streamline the billing and collections process, helping to both optimize revenues and reduce claim processing time.

Understand Your Revenue Cycle Like You Never Have Before

With years of experience navigating the complexities of coding and documentation, we can help you mitigate compliance risk, enhance charge capture and improve accuracy. In the area of denials and appeals management, we can help you develop and implement EMS billing and collection improvement strategies that are designed to minimize accounts receivable days, reduce denials and optimize collection results.

We can help decrease bad debt and increase revenue by improving claims processing and pursuing collections to help you receive all reimbursement you are contractually owed. We’ll also provide a detailed monthly report of net revenue calculations and cash flow projections based on payer mix and monthly trending. With our account view capabilities, resolving account issues will be a collaborative effort. Together we can look into patient account records to research questions, facilitate requests for additional information, collaborate on recovering denials, reconcile cash drawer, post transactions and more. Additional reporting tools will also help you better understand the financial health of your agency.

Adopt Our Online EMS Subscription Service

EMS subscription programs – which entail households paying an annual flat fee to cover emergency medical services and related expenses – have become a popular means of generating supplemental income for EMS departments.

The EMS Subscription Service from McKesson automates and manages the subscription process, allowing online sign-up, payment and renewal for our EMS billing clients as well as other agencies on a stand-alone basis. We understand the value that a streamlined subscription service can provide to both agencies and area residents.
