You care for your patients. We collect the reimbursements you have earned. Here’s how.
First Coast Billing Group can offer comprehensive medical billing services – everything from coding and submitting claims to collecting payments. Yet, we are also well known and trusted for providing several very specialized services that we believe can’t be matched by other firms in our industry. These include:
Group Practice Services
We serve hospitals and healthcare providers of all sizes, but we’ve developed a special expertise in serving practices with anywhere from one to ten physicians. We understand that maintaining a steady cash flow can be the difference between success and struggle for this size practice.
We provide these practices with the personalized attention you need, freeing up your staff to focus on patient-centered care. For the most part, our small and mid-size practice clients don’t have to do anything but receive payments we have collected on their behalf. We can code, bill, file insurance claims and process reimbursements.
EKG Over-Read Billing Services
Cardiologists often review electrocardiograms (EKGs) on behalf of hospitals or other physician practices. This is a very important process for hospitals – in fact, it’s required by The Joint Commission, the nation’s leading healthcare accreditation organization. However, obtaining reimbursements can be tedious because of the large number of claims and the relatively small payments per claim.
At First Coast Billing, we’ve developed specialized software that allows us to submit claims in bulk on behalf of cardiologists. Our software interfaces directly with hospital databases. So, all our cardiology clients have to do is read EKGs and receive reimbursements. We do everything else. At present, more than 25 hospitals and nearly 300 cardiologists in Florida are utilizing us for this service.
AR Wind-Down Services
When healthcare providers switch between medical billing companies – especially between two, large national companies, frequently the new company does not want the data download to include any old accounts receivable. Winding down old AR is a line of business we have developed over the last few years. We have also partnered with several national billing companies to contract for that “wind-down” business.
First Coast Billing can collect those old accounts receivable. We’ll do everything we can to get your old claims taken care of in the fairest manner possible.
