As a healthcare provider in a health system, physician group, or private practice, it’s a challenge to find a collection agency partner that understands the intricacies of your industry and can speak intelligently to patients about healthcare billing collections.

Commitment to the Patient Experience
IC System communications have resulted in just one CFPB complaint per 93,345 healthcare contacts, a rate of 0.00107%. Thanks to our CSAT process, we’ve been able to ensure that revenue recovery remains high and complaint volumes stay low.
What separates IC System from other healthcare collections agencies is that we records all communications and regularly evaluate the representative conduct to ensure a positive patient experience. We score calls on our 1 to 10 grading scale (10 being the best). Our data shows that patients are almost twice as likely to pay on calls with a score of 10 than those with a score of 7. This suggests the better the patient experience, the higher the likelihood of payment.
Your medical collections agency partner needs to understand the complex healthcare industry to succeed. That means they should understand self-pay, primary, secondary, and tertiary inventories. Our staff includes subject matter experts who work closely with the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) and the American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM).
Our healthcare managers have been certified in the HFMA’s Certified Revenue Cycle Representative (CRCR) Certification Program and AAHAM’s Certified Revenue Cycle Specialist (CRCS).
IC System’s Vice President of Healthcare Account Management, Kristina Gursky, holds a seat on AAHAM’s newly formed National Patient Financial Advocate Task Force, putting our healthcare collection agency at the forefront of new standards and practices.
