Improve Your Hospital Emergency Department’s Revenue Cycle and Bill with Confidence
Managing a successful Emergency Department billing service for your hospital requires many operations to run at one time, while simultaneously and may present some unique challenges to more than one in your practice. However, for many doctors and Emergency Department administrators, one of the biggest challenges involves managing medical and Medicaid billings effectively in order to maintain a steady cash flow and build a profitable Emergency Department billing service. Whether you are preparing to start a new Emergency Department billing service or your practice has been around for decades, there are steps you can – and should – take in order to manage your private insurance and Medicaid billings the most effective way.
Outsourcing medical billing is a smart solution for those who want to allow their staff more time to focus on the other day-to-day intricacies of running a Emergency Department billing service and allow their staff to put more effort in patient care. The extra time afforded by hiring an outside billing firm can present new opportunities in your Emergency Department billing service, such as taking on more patients or reorganizing filing systems. At Fortis Medical Billing, we have the knowledge, insights, and experience you need in order to successfully take over your medical and Medicaid billing and offer you the free time you need to pursue new venues.

Our Medical Billing Services for Emergency Department’s Billing Services and Practitioners
Managing your Emergency Department’s billings properly takes time, effort, and expertise. Reducing your denial rate and accounts receivable collection time starts at the coding stage. Making sure you code your billings correctly requires a comprehensive understanding of the various professional, facility, risk adjustment factor (RAF), and other coding rules and requirements that apply. We offer the expertise needed for medical and Medicaid billings to be processed effectively and efficiently. Our services include:
Billing & Coding – We help Emergency Departments nationwide establish compliant billing and coding policies and procedures. We also help our clients integrate these policies and procedures into their patient care and management practices so that the medical billing process is as streamlined as possible. While billing and coding are necessary to operate a successful cash flow in your hospital’s Emergency Department billing services, they should run seamlessly in the background. We provide initial and ongoing consulting services designed to ensure that our clients’ billing programs are assets rather than liabilities.
Auditing – We offer two distinct types of Emergency Department billing audit services. First, if you are thinking about switching billing companies, we can audit your current billing policies and procedures to determine where and to what extent the services are lacking. We can also audit your company’s recent and outstanding billings to determine why claims are being denied, and why it is taking so long for your practice to get paid. Second, as your Emergency Department billing services provider, we can audit the results of our own work in order to maintain accountability, identify shortcomings in your internal billing personnel’s practices, and ensure that your practice’s billing efforts are operating at peak efficiency.
Revenue Cycle Management – Effective revenue cycle management (RCM) requires an in-depth understanding of the unique aspects of your Emergency Department. Off-the-shelf RCM “solutions” simply are not going to offer the same level of results as a program that is custom-tailored to your Emergency Department’s hospital billing service. At Fortis Medical Billing, we work closely with our clients to understand their specific challenges and develop creative and targeted strategies to overcome them.
