We understand the apprehensions that come with using an outsourced billing company. There are a lot of common myths circulating that prevent many businesses from taking this step.

2021 was an interesting year for many hospices as they navigated the intricacies of billing hospice care to Medicare Managed care plans as part of the VBID pilot.

PROVIDING SUPPORT IN A BILLING TRANSITION
In January 2021, Advanced Hospice Management began working with Hospice of Lansing in Lansing, Michigan, after its in-house biller retired. John Person, the executive director of the agency, needed expert revenue cycle management services and decided to consider outsourcing their billing needs. Looking for a reliable service provider that thoroughly understood the hospice billing industry, the agency contacted Advanced Hospice Management.
“We’ve been extremely happy with the service, responsiveness, industry knowledge and professionalism of AHM.”
“They have some insights about how you can do something better and how to smooth that out, and that has been helpful. We have a very good relationship and we enjoy the individuals that we work with.”
Advanced Hospice Management has helped the agency understand and enhance its overall billing processes. We were able to use their current electronic medical record (EMR) system, providing the agency with a seamless onboarding process. Along with hospice billing services, we have also been able to provide the agency with recommendations and outside resources to improve other aspects of their operations.
“There's no question they know their stuff and have been
an incredible resource for us.”
