Expeditive Adds New Service Line For Critical Access Hospitals

On May 9th, Expeditive sent out a press release announcing that we are now providing remote Medicare billing services for critical access hospitals. This is a service we’ve been offering for awhile, but we finally decided it was time to get the word out about the service.

The reason this works well is because of the unique nature of critical access hospitals, that being their accessibility and, often, the costs of bringing multiple billing personnel in when a CAH has difficulties in cleaning up their A/R. Also, many CAH facilities find that it’s difficult finding qualified people in their area that they wouldn’t have to spend a lot of time with as far as training goes so that they would be of that much help if something needed to be done quickly.

There are two things to add to this press release. One, because we have access to billing personnel across the country, it’s possible that we might already have someone who either lives in your state or has worked on claims in your state. That’s always a bonus, because even though Medicare is basically Medicare wherever you go, each state’s fiscal intermediary seems to have something different than another state. And even if we didn’t have someone familiar with your state, it’s a short learning curve in getting up to speed on the local rules.

Two, though we announced this for CAH’s, it’s a service that other hospitals could negotiate with us as well. Most of the time, we find that larger facilities like the idea of having people on hand to see what they’re doing, and that’s not a problem with us.

We’re glad to have the opportunity to get the word out on this service; stay tuned for more things as we grow.
