As a cardiologist, you provide care to one of the most essential human organs. Without a properly functioning heart, a person doesn’t have much time to live, unless a solution is provided. Your patients range in all ages. From babies that are born with a murmur, to elders that have suffered a heart attack, you treat them all. Apart from providing immediate care, you also offer regular and necessary checkups to ensure that your patients’ hearts are working properly.
Within that mix of patients, you may have some that haven’t paid their bills or that miss them regularly. Instead of using your limited resources to chase down patients and collect their past due accounts, get in touch with Southwest Recovery Services. We can do it for you. Our talented agents have the tools and experience to collect those unpaid bills efficiently.
Cardiologist Debt Collection Challenges
If you are running a cardiologist clinic, you have a lot on your hands. From treating patients with emergencies to providing the annual EKG, you and your staff are always on your toes. If you don’t have a department dedicated to ensuring that invoices are being sent out and collected on time, then you may run into some issues. Keeping track of all the invoices and unpaid bills is tedious work. You can hire staff that will be dedicated to handling all of your invoicing and collections, but you will need to have the additional infrastructure to host them. They require tools and training to aid them in debt collections.
Money is a sensitive topic and it needs to be approached appropriately, which is why you and your staff should receive training. There are rules and regulations that need to be followed, such as:
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)
- Fair Credit Reporting Act
- Bankruptcy Laws
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Certification Class
- American Collectors Association Rules and Regulations
Therefore, the most efficient and cost-effective solution is to outsource to a debt agency. Southwest Recovery Services has your back.
