How to adapt to patient-friendly billing in the COVID-19 world

The coronavirus pandemic has turned the world upside-down in more ways than one. Many consumer behavior patterns have changed in the wake of the pandemic, primarily due to individuals spending so much more time at home now than they have in the past. Those patterns have afforded individuals with more time to do research, more time to ask questions, more time to become well-informed, especially about their medical bills and the options that may be available to them. In response to this trend, healthcare providers would do well to monitor their interactions with individuals and make necessary adjustments to their scripts, policies and procedures, and arrangements with third-party collection agencies so proper preparations and arrangements can be made to account for a patient who is more sophisticated and understanding....

PPMS Certified

PPMS is a management system for recovery agencies based upon developing, implementing and adhering to a set of strict industry-specific professional practices and policies.

PPMS certification, much like a SAS-70 audit, requires independent CPA attestation that an agency has in place written policies, procedures, and work processes that ensure regulatory compliance and adherence to industry best practices. The agency must also demonstrate that it has procedures in place to identify and remediate any variance from these. PPMS certified agencies are subject to annual surveillance and must re-certify every five years.

An agency that has voluntarily undergone the PPMS application and certification process is, quite simply, a better business partner than one which has not. This rigorous process results in:


  • Greater productivity/better recoveries
  • Increased efficiency for better customer service
  • Improved data security and physical security
  • Improved solutions to compliance issues
  • Enhanced disaster recovery
  • More effectively trained staff
  • Continuous measurement of client satisfaction
  • Faster resolution of client services issues
  • Company-wide commitment to quality assurance
  • Documented procedures for consistent performance

This strict accreditation insures that you as HCI clients, receive the very best service.

"Clients come to us when good isn't good enough. They demand the best. We love it and wouldn't have it any other way."
