Ground Revenue Cycle

At HSI, we have always prided ourselves in being more than just a billing company.   We are a partner to clients who need a reliable, trusted source for all aspects of their revenue cycle management.  We take this responsibility seriously.  HSI’s goal is to provide world-class service by using our proprietary cutting-edge technology and highly-trained professionals and to remain invested in continuous process improvement for the betterment of our clients.  Whether your organization is a private ambulance company, a municipal department, or a hospital-based service, HSI has something for you!

HSI takes the time to learn our clients’ operations and understand where we can offer improvements or input throughout the entire process.  At the time of implementation, the HSI client services team reviews everything from provider enrollment applications to crew documentation to current billing practices and procedures so that a comprehensive approach can be used through the transition.   Areas covered in the review and implementation include but are not limited to:

  • Provider enrollment applications
  • Compliance review of crew documentation
  • Physician Certification Statements (PCS)
  • Prior authorization processes
  • Lockbox setups & cash reconciliation
  • ePCR configurations
  • CAD processes
  • Membership programs
  • Financial hardship programs
  • Fair billing and collection practices

Once the implementation is complete and HSI begins receiving completed transport documentation, our teams of billers and coders, many of whom are Certified Ambulance Coders, complete all aspects of the claim cycle including but not limited to:

  • Insurance verification
  • Compliance & quality assurance reviews prior to claim submission
  • Sourcing of payer information when not available
  • Claim follow-up
  • Appeals when claims deny
  • Patient responsibility billing
  • Payer and patient refunds
  • Internal audits
