Increasing the Odds of Getting Paid for Ambulance Patient Transports
To the ambulance administrator or person who does patient billing, the aging report is a key measure to cash flow management in running a healthy ambulance service business. Given tougher than usual economic times, ambulance companies are experiencing an increase in private pay and other circumstances with patient transport bills not getting paid, and for many, the non collection percentage continues to go up. There is a solution: Transworld Systems, Inc. For more on Transworld's new offer for PAAW members, click here.
Recently signed by PAAW as the newest member benefit in group purchasing, Transworld Systems takes the nightmare out of past due collections. For flat fee of $10 per patient account, they manage a series of contacts with better than above average results. Bottom line: It might be better to contact them for $10 before reporting to your board or supervisor the need for approval to write off that $500 or $1,200 patient transport bill.
