Ambulance Billing Services

The AdvantEdge ambulance billing service begins by designing a billing process custom-fit for your practice, concentrating on the most efficient and expedient means to obtain all needed information, with built-in quality and integrity checks.  Meanwhile, we perform a complete review and update of credentialing (provider enrollment) information. Compliance issues and risks are highlighted and resolved throughout the process.

As claims are adjudicated, scrubbed claims are sent to each of your payors. Payments are posted and denials are automatically directed to the proper AdvantEdge expert for rapid resolution. Secondary claims and patient balances are automatically billed. Outstanding balances with payors and patients are reviewed daily with each exception allocated to the appropriate accounts receivable expert. Throughout this process, your practice has access to daily financial and operational summaries of these functions. An AdvantEdge client manager works with your practice throughout implementation and after; he or she is available to your practice at any time to review questions and as a practice management resource.

 

At AdvantEdge, we take pride in meeting each client’s specific needs, with consistently strong net collections and A/R performance. This “outsourced” (i.e. your work is done by our employees on your behalf) billing reduces your fixed costs, while you retain control and visibility, including online “anytime, anywhere” access to your current financial performance.
