The burden of ever-increasing regulations, the threat of medical liability, and the erosion in Medicare payments are tough challenges that come with running an ophthalmology practice. However, the effective management of billings to maintain continuous cash flow and realize a profit is a bigger problem. Without a well-structured billing service, the normal operation of your business is in danger. These problems can show up for both new and established ophthalmic ventures. As always, better techniques for handling your private insurance and medical billings are available.
At Fortis Medical Billing, we are confident—based on our knowledge, insights, and experience—that we will deliver a custom, sufficient medical billing system for your ophthalmic practice. We are proud of our satisfied client portfolio showing improved profitability and efficiency of operations in various medical practices.
About Fortis Medical Billing Services
In an effort to improve the efficiency of operations and increase the profitability of ophthalmic practices, Fortis Medical Billing was established. The understanding that passion for your work is best accompanied by a solid financial management system influenced the design and deployment of our proven solutions. In place of a junior, inexperienced accountant, we come in with a wealth of experience delivered through a diverse team that is particularly passionate about streamlining ophthalmic practices. Our clients have displayed significant improvement in the order, workflow, and reconciliation of medical bills after working with Fortis.
Whether cash or insurance, our services are designed to bring in all your dues. Our team is made of physicians, auditors, and former FBI agents with a great understanding of not just finances but also the laws and regulations that govern the ophthalmology sector. Ensuring strict compliance with the law will enhance your credibility and improve your profile. That is the guiding principle for our services.

All of our operations are custom and well fitted to your needs. As a result, we can make quick decisions that will help you to grow your ophthalmic practice. We seek to relieve you of financial management stress and let you focus on your patients. We endeavor to make the impact noticeable to your customers as operations will be much easier.
Our Services for Ophthalmologists and Their Practices
We would be lying if we told you that we have one product that fits all clients’ needs. While our packages are premium, we prefer to go the extra mile of understanding the inner workings of your practice so we can develop tailored solutions. A rule of thumb across all of our projects is to strictly adhere to regulations. This includes any professional, facility, and risk adjustment factor regulations. In this way, you get an effective and efficient medical billing solution. Down to the specifics, the following are our ophthalmic medical billing solutions:
Billing and Coding
Over the years, we have assisted many ophthalmic practices across the country establish coding and billing policies and procedures that comply with the law. To ensure smooth medical billing, we have entire solutions that can help ophthalmic practices work coding and billing into their patient care and management systems. With a fully coherent system, operations become much easier. A great billing system ensures that both billing and coding run seamlessly in the background. We insist on providing continuous support to our clients. As such, we have both initial and ongoing consultation to cater to your needs at any time. With this, we arm you with an asset you can count on.
We offer auditing services for both practices that already employ our services and those that don’t. For our clients, we take pleasure in digging into our own work to find out any problematic areas. We will identify shortcomings in the way your personnel is handling your billing work and suggest efficient alternatives to improve accountability.
If you wish to migrate from your current billing system, we have equally helpful auditing packages for this situation. After a thorough analysis, we will identify loopholes and areas in which your current billing company may be lacking and to what level. Also, if you are experiencing delayed settlements on your recent and outstanding billings, we can audit the records and tell you why you are not getting paid.
Revenue Cycle Management
An impactful revenue cycle management system cannot be standard. We ensure that we will get a proper understanding of the uniqueness of your ophthalmic practice. After getting a proper understanding of the specific challenges you are dealing with, we then create tailored solutions. In contrast, off-the-shelf solutions cannot match the level of utility you will get from customized revenue cycle management systems.
