Intentions to provide the most affordable care for patients are customary at providers across the nation. However, the added burden to revenue cycle executives, business office managers, and collections staff is heavy.
Everyone wants to maximize self-pay after insurance and full self-pay collections. But, at what cost – added FTE’s, increasing cost to collect, and negative KPI benchmarks (A/R days, cash/liquidity, and bad debt)?
Or perhaps, you’re in process or recently implemented a new EMR system? Legacy system patient accounts receivable remain there until they are reconciled. Staff is now tasked with the headache of efficiently managing two sets of data that don't speak to one another.
Let’s break down the problem:
- Patients are on the hook for a larger portion of collection
- Providers attempt to provide internal payment plans to pay over time
- Management of internal payment plans is costly and inefficient
- A/R days increase, cash is being delayed, and accounts are going to bad debt further down the road than needed
- Legacy system patient accounts receivable become more tedious with a new EMR
Heading into 2020 an innovative solution is available that will fund and manage your existing patient account receivables or legacy accounts. It converts the day-to-day billing, collecting and patient communications for existing patient accounts into immediate cash for the provider.
Imagine one day, you’re managing and collecting hundreds or thousands of patient accounts in your EMR or legacy system. The next day, those accounts are funded and accounts are brought to zero.
Your facility now has an immediate influx of cash, A/R days are dropping, and staff can appropriate more time to the daily functions of your business office. This conversion method means a clean slate to change your payment policy approach, or tweak it to become more manageable.

What those who've taken advantage of the program have to say.
"We can give patients a new solution depending on their ability to pay. The interest-free loan for the first 12 months is a good incentive for them to pay it off quicker."
Deborah Piggott - DIRECTOR OF REVENUE CYCLE
“We were really looking for a good option for our patient payment plans that didn’t involve us having to manage them internally. We also wanted to make sure that it was really fair for patients.”
