If you're unhappy with the total revenue brought in by our current billing vendor, this might be your opportunity to bring billing in-house. Having your own team take on EMS billing may provide you with some financial and operational advantages, but let's make sure you are ready for this change. Software, staffing, and compliance are just a few key components to make an in-house billing operation successful.
Questions to Consider:
What is your annual claim volume?
Do you currently bill in-house or leverage a third party for your billing needs?
If you bill in-house, how many full-time billers do you have on staff?
