Managing a small hospital is a job in itself. Add in the billing operations and you’ve got quite the task ahead of you. A lot of the time this is the cause for small hospitals to lose money. It opens the door to the chance you might not be billing for everything you should be, resubmitting claims that were denied, or not collecting on outstanding accounts.
This is why Fortis Medical Billing has refined the way we handle billing and coding for small specialty hospitals. We’ve come to realize that providing a truly customized approach to the specific needs of each client will yield a lot more success than a generic approach that’s used over and over.
We’ll help you understand the steps that you need to take to manage the billings sent to private insurance carriers as well as Medicaid. Our goal is to help you make the most out of your accounts receivable and reduce the number of denials your hospitals have from insurance companies.
Why choose Fortis Specialty Hospital Billing Professionals?
Some might say that our team is the best in the business. We hire experienced auditors, former FBI agents, and physicians that have extensive experience when it comes to billing and compliance. It’s this approach that helps us stand out among all our competitors.
All too often we see companies hiring inexperienced medical coders, and that ultimately limits the success that they’ll be able to produce for their clients. Not to mention, it’s often one of the main reasons that claims get denied. With our approach, we embrace what many do not.
Efficient processes. Fewer denials. More accountability.
Our Portfolio of Specialty Hospital Billing & Coding Services
Below you’ll see a listing of all of the services that we offer to hospitals of all sizes. Whether you’re focused on a particular specialty, or you’re more in the realm of general practice, we’ll come up with the best solution for you.
Auditing for Small Specialty Hospitals
Starting with our initial audit consultation during the onboarding process, we also take a close look at your billing policies and procedures to see where you currently stand. This helps us see where you lack and where you excel, giving us a true roadmap to success.
As we continue to work with our clients, we provide ongoing consultation services as well to ensure that not only do we help them grow, but we ensure compliance at the same time. We take action where it’s needed (resubmitting denials, etc.) to ensure the best results possible.
We’ve learned that this is where we’re able to start reducing the number of denials while speeding up the amount of time it takes to get paid. As for monitoring our results, it’s not an option and we always keep an eye on things to uncover room for improvement.
Medical Billing & Coding
Regulations constantly change, and so do the ways insurance providers handle claims which means that you need to stay on top of it at all times. This time next year, the way you do things now might not produce you with the greatest benefit. However, you can fix this by working with a reputable medical billing company such as Fortis.
Aside from keeping on top of the latest changes in the industry, we’ll also ensure a seamless transition when it comes to the billing stage. The way you take care of patients and the way that you manage your hospital is kept at top of mind to ensure the most transparent relationship ever seen from any specialty hospital billing service.
Revenue Cycle Management Solutions
Cashflow is critical when it comes to the success of any hospital, regardless of its size or area of specialty. We will work hand in hand with you to create a completely customized program to ensure revenue cycle management that will offer you the results that you need for the long-term. With our creative approaches and strategies, you’ll be able to get a lot more from your billings than software can provide.
Instead of using software that limits the way that things are done, you can embrace a unique approach that helps you overcome the specific challenge that your hospital may face. Just because it’s unique to your hospital doesn’t mean that it has to be ignored.
We let our results speak for themselves. It’s the only way.
If you’ve been around the medical industry for as long as we have, you get presented with some rather difficult challenges. We’ve come to realize that more times than not, many small specialty hospitals come to us when they’re having to deal with situations such as:
- A need for increased revenue is needed to continue growth.
- Cashflow is either not as expected or non-existent.
- Improvements could be made to their outdated compliance program.
- The number of outstanding bills (non-payment) or denials is at a high rate.
- Their billing department has failed behind and had difficulties keeping up.

- 99% of our clients sticking around for the longer term.
- 95% when it comes to collecting outstanding payments.
- Complete elimination of setup fees being passed onto our clients.
