EMERGICON has increased reimbursements for every one of our 100+ Texas clients.
EMERGICON follows a customized, proprietary 3-Step Quality Assurance and Improvement Plan that emphasizes rigorous cross referencing (with ESO Billing Software Services and manual review), unique EMS and emergency responder training and continuous training of Emergicon staff.
EMERGICON employs a Continuous Quality Improvement process (CQI) for billing. Patient charts are reviewed manually for documentation of patient condition and chief complaint, for signatures and for all areas that are required for claims to be complete. This is a common-sense approach. Unfortunately, it’s not very common. Our staff uses this review process to provide your department with meaningful feedback that closes loopholes and improves reimbursement by focusing on compliance and clinical documentation while better managing litigation risk.
The difference between good billing and great billing, assuming everything else is equal, is consistent follow-up.
Different from collections services and ambulance billing services, EMERGICON offers Claims Recovery Services. Very few ambulance billing companies offer this difficult, highly valuable service.
EMERGICON painstakingly turns over every stone and finds money that was overlooked, given up for good and simply deemed unrecoverable. Few perform this service because it takes highly trained staff combing through an organization’s accounts receivable history to find ambulance bills that are unpaid, but lawfully still recoverable from Medicare, Medicaid, insurance companies or patients.
This process is similar to an accountant looking through your previous tax filings and discovering the IRS owes you money.
With some new clients, we have offered this service as a way to prove our worth before signing a long-term contract.
