Accounts Receivable Management
This is the core of any practice because it dictates whether you will have a solid cash flow or if you will let your revenue slip through the cracks. From documenting every single charge that’s involved with the treatment process to ensuring that insurance companies aren’t left alone just because they denied your request for reimbursement. We handle all of the aspects of accounts receivable management to ensure that your revenue stays protected at all times.

We have experienced auditors on staff who have extensive experience providing practices of all sizes with in-depth audits that are sure to reveal any weaknesses as well as show where your billing processes are the strongest.
Off-Site Billing Solutions
Having to tackle medical billing and coding yourself can be a little too overwhelming at times, which is why we offer the option to have all of the billing done off-site. This doesn’t mean that we will eliminate the process of streamlining operations on-site, because this is something that we always do regardless of whether billing is outsourced or not.
It just means that we will take all the billing operations and move them completely into our offices to ensure that you aren’t overwhelmed when it comes to billing for medical care.
Tracking of Insurance Claims
Dealing with insurance companies can get hectic, to say the least. This is where we excel, as we have dealt with many insurance companies on all levels. From the time that the charges are billed initially all the way to the day we see that you get the reimbursement you earned, we will provide you with a system that allows you to track the status of all insurance claims filed on behalf of your medical facility.
Verification of Eligibility
From implementing advanced processes that are initiated at the time that a patient checks in to the time that the treatment sees its conclusion, we’ll be with you every step of the way and verify one’s eligibility to ensure that you don’t put your reimbursement at risk. By doing this, we can ensure that uncovered services are met with alternatives that will be covered while ensuring each patient has the coverage that they claim to have when they enter your office.
Most companies charge for every second, we only charge for results.
This has become commonplace for many companies, which is why you will notice that some will charge a substantial amount of money just to initiate the onboarding process. We know what our team is capable of, and we’re willing to start onboarding at no cost to you.
Our focus is on producing each and every client with the best results that can be seen among any medical billing and coding company in the Indianapolis area (as well as the other markets that we serve across the country). The best way that we can maintain our focus is simply by allowing our clients to only pay for the results that we attain for them. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Don’t become a victim of some of the most common medical billing fails.
One thing that’s common with every medical practice, regardless of specialty, is that it is always at risk of being susceptible to some of the most common mistakes in the industry. Over the years we have helped practices overcome this risk and use a better approach to improving themselves. Below, you will see these common risks explained and how Fortis Medical Billing Company in Indianapolis can help you too.
Billing policies need to be solid and updated, but this is often forgotten.
Not only have we helped our clients realize where their billing processes could use improvement, but we keep them updated to ensure that they fully embrace the latest rules and regulations set forth for the healthcare industry. This is an industry that is subject to continuous change, and outdated processes could quickly lead to legal issues and lost revenue.
Disorganization has led to a lot of inefficiencies when it comes to daily operations.
From the records that are kept for each patient to the insurance claims that are filed to seek reimbursement for services provided, everything must be organized. Doing so will make it a lot easier to operate on a day-to-day basis while allowing complications to rise to the surface. We can help implement systems that make recordkeeping quicker and more organized.
Improper billing practices could lead to filing fraudulent claims.
It’s no secure that fraudulent insurance claims are constantly looked out for by government agencies as well as the insurance companies themselves. From billing for the wrong services to misrepresenting the date of service, the risk is always there. By having the right billing policies in place, you can eliminate the risk of fraudulent claims being filed on behalf of your practice.
Not training staff reduces the amount of opportunity that can be embraced.
Medical billing and coding in Indianapolis is a rather sensitive subject, and it takes a lot of knowledge to master (much less continue to master). This is why we offer complete training for all of your employees that are tasked with billing duties. Not only will we help them understand a better way of doing things, but we’ll also show them how to stay in compliance at all times.
Overlooking revenue opportunities could significantly limit a practice’s potential.
You might think that overlooking charges for certain services or supplies might not seem like a big deal, but it does add up which could lead to being a big deal. We help you implement systems within your practice to ensure that your revenue isn’t overlooked at any time.
