Fortis was founded by a federal healthcare compliance lawyer who saw a better way for labs and other providers to manage their billing programs after representing thousands of clients in billing audits and investigations. Today, our team includes former agents with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (DHHS OIG), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and other federal agencies who spent decades investigating medical billing fraud before entering the private sector.
The scope of our experience is unique within the medical billing industry. This allows us to offer deep insights and custom-tailored advice to lab owners and executives, and it allows us to improve and effectively manage our clients medical billing programs with a specific focus on the issues that lead to problems.

3. Benchmarking, Auditing, and Managed Billing Solutions
Managing your labs billing and measuring your labs improvement start with effective benchmarking. We benchmark all aspects of our clients medical billing practices so that they can see where their risks lie and where they have room for improvement. Auditing is critical as well, and we provide comprehensive medical billing and coding audit services to our clients so that they can address any systemic issues within their operations before they lead to delays, denials, or external scrutiny.
Many lab owners and executives prefer a completely hands-off approach when it comes to medical billing. For these clients, we offer managed billing solutions that take their billing operations completely off-site. Relying on our medical billing software and expertise, we handle all aspects of these labs billing programs, from pre-billing contracting and setup to post-billing claim tracking, denial management, and collections.

More About Our Medical Billing Services for Labs
Along with our medical billing platform, benchmarking, auditing, and managed billing services, we offer a comprehensive suite of additional medical billing services to labs nationwide. Depending on your labs specific needs, we can help improve your labs billing efficiency and cash flow through one or more of the following:
We offer a variety of pre-bill services focused on helping our clients start billing new payors quickly and improving our clients billing efficiency. This includes assisting with credentialing, contracting, and eligibility verification, as well as providing billing compliance program assessments and improvement recommendations.
Billing and Coding
Accurate and compliant coding is at the heart of any successful medical billing program. Whether through working with our clients in-house billing teams or our managed billing solutions, we help labs put the policies, procedures, and systems in place that they need to bill correctly and on time. We provide comprehensive coding compliance solutions as well, and our medical billing platform includes automation capabilities designed specifically to facilitate timely billing and coding compliance.
Posting and AR Management
Our medical billing platform allows for end-to-end tracking of our clients reimbursements. This means that our clients know when (and if) payments post, and it means that they know how long their accounts receivable have been outstanding in real time. This allows for more effective AR management, which translates to more timely payments, less administrative hassles, and improved cash flow.
Even with effective claim tracking, some payors simply wont pay when they are supposed to. This presents obvious problems for lab owners and executives; but, fortunately, these are problems that labs can manage effectively. Through our posting and AR management solutions, we are able to identify when our clients are facing collection risks due to delays and denials; and, through our medical billing expertise, we are able to help our clients resolve these risks and avoid denials in the substantial majority of cases.
