Q: What are the financial risks to outsourcing my medical billing?

A: It’s understandable that you have concerns about a company “from the outside” handling your finances. That’s why RC Billing works with you “from the inside.” Far from imposing some cookie-cutter process, we design procedures and reports that will flow with – not interrupt – your current revenue stream. We insist that our billing clients have a lockbox so that all funds are transported either electronically or via paper check directly to the bank. This ensures each client’s monies are safe and secure. We become part of your team, getting to know your staff and training them so they’re comfortable with any new methods or systems.  We conduct regular calls with staff and contacts to update every step along the way to make sure all details are executed flawlessly. 

Q: My current medical billing company is across town. How will you handle my billing if you're not?

A: When it comes to partner billing, our clients have found that it’s more about knowledge base, responsiveness, professionalism, dedication and accommodation than location.  In fact, the majority of RC Billing clients are located outside of Texas.  We are 100% US based and proud of that fact.  We are all about accommodating client needs and have designed a number of options to do that.  Because each client is different, we customize the logistical fit that is right in each case. We’ve had great success with setting up remote access into oncology medical record and/or billing systems that enable us to retrieve coding, as well as medical records, with ease. In addition, there is also the option of an electronic interface between the practices systems and our billing system.
