Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs)
Billing and revenue solutions for FQHCs
“We consider EqualizeRCM (ERCM) a real partner in its AR collection efforts. ERCM staff understand the important role that we and all Federally Qualified Health Centers play in our local communities, and they work hard to help assure we collect everything due us in order to help fund those services.”
CEO, Texas-based FQHC
When it comes to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), the billing and revenue process is hardly ever straightforward. Due to their status as a federally funded and regulated entity, FQHCs are subject to specialized and oftentimes challenging billing requirements. Moreover, much of their patient population is uninsured, so collections departments can’t hope to function the same way other hospitals, health centers, and private practices might.
Reimbursement models may change, but the tenets of great care never do
At EqualizeRCM, we know your patients are your first priority, and that’s why we’ve made clients like you our first priority. When medical organizations are overburdened by the demands of regulations, provider enrollment, Medicare and Medicaid billing and reimbursement requirements, patient collections, and others, they cannot provide the type of care their patients deserve. We believe medical providers and administrators like you should never have to cut corners, which is why we’ve designed our revenue management solutions to increase collections, reduce costs, maximize billing, and, overall, enhance the way your FQHC conducts business day-to-day.
Reducing aging A/R takes clean billing and constant work on denials and outstanding balances. Most medical practices and facilities experience high A/R because of denials that have not been worked in a timely manner.
Our dedicated team of experienced billers, coders, and account managers work with our clients daily to bill clean claims and prevent denials.
With the use of our proprietary software and expert team of billers, EqualizeRCM can increase cash flow and identify root causes to help our clients reduce zero balance accounts and improve revenue integrity.
When you need additional support in optimizing your revenue cycle, EqualizeRCM offers high quality services from qualified team players who become extensions of your business cycle.
