Rural and Critical Access Hospitals
Rural and critical access hospitals face many challenges. They have smaller budgets, which leads to challenges with getting the latest technology and smaller staff size. They also have a limited talent pool and often have to train employees on the latest technology and compliance changes. This can have a big impact on building and improving their medical revenue cycle management strategies. These uniquely rural healthcare revenue cycle challenges have caused many rural and critical access hospitals to merge with larger hospital systems, thus losing their independence, or even close.
HRS understands the value of rural and critical access hospitals and the challenges that they face. We can help to fill the gap, by providing medical billing and collection services. We can provide a dedicated staff that is focused on your medical billing requirements. We have been providing medical billing services for hospitals and physician practices for over 60 years. With an average tenure of 11 years, we have some of the most experienced staff in the industry.
Our dedicated and highly experienced staff will analyze and send claims daily. Our team will notify you of any inconsistencies such as diagnosis codes, procedure codes, and bundling issues. All claims are confirmed within the first 14 days after submission. Then we follow the claim until it has reached maximum reimbursement by the insurance companies.
We are not like a typical outsourced medical billing service. We provide a personalized service through a dedicated staff.
