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.

In addition, there is also the option of an electronic interface between the practices systems and our billing system.
