How can we help? All health care providers, large and small, have gaps in the revenue cycle that allow reimbursement dollars to slip through, or create compliance risks. Where are these gaps and how do they impact your bottom line? What are your compliance risks and how can you minimize them? Epoch Health Solutions can help at both ends of the spectrum.
We can identify and resolve the issues in your revenue cycle: assessing and improving charging and billing operations, coding, documentation, and compliance. We specialize in Medicare, Medicaid and other third-party commercial payer reimbursement.
