Improving patient relationships and increasing revenue.

Self-Pay and Bad Debt Solutions

In recent years, the increasing amount of high-deductible plans are making it harder for patients to cover out-of-pocket healthcare costs. As the population of these payment-responsible patients grows, providers are finding it increasingly difficult to collect payment. But, positive patient relationships can be maintained when there are self-pay concerns. With the help of our knowledgeable and supportive staff, self-payments can increase and positive relationships with patients can be maintained, lowering AR days and reducing bad debt.
