Medical Debt Collections
Unpaid medical debt is reaching epidemic proportions. That’s not surprising, considering Texas has the largest number of uninsured citizens in the US. Recent studies show that 1 in 5 Americans are carrying a crippling amount of medical debt. That number is 1 in 4 for Texans.
Dallas is on par with the rest of Texas. So many uninsured individuals and so many health practitioners in the city equal an unparalleled amount of overdue medical bills. It is an unfortunate statistic, but it must be dealt with in order for medical professionals to stay in business.
A Softer Approach to Medical Debt Collection
Our agents understand that medical debt is a sensitive, often emotional topic for people. The bills could be a reminder of the struggles they have gone through, and they might be ashamed that they still owe money to the people who helped them through such a tough time. We handle each case with patience and compassion.
We start by verifying the patient’s information through a series of questions:
- Do you have a copy of the bill?
- Is this your current address?
- Do you have any questions about the bill?
- Have you reported any problems or concerns?
- Tell me about your current situation.
- How would you like to take care of the bill?
These questions help us establish a rapport with the patient and verify that we are dealing with the right person. By collecting data, patiently asking and answering questions and presenting alternatives, we can dramatically improve the collection rate on your patient accounts.
We Have All the Resources You Need
Most medical practices and health care providers simply lack the knowledge, resources, and scale needed to ask the right questions and follow up appropriately. That’s why they call the medical account experts at Southwest Recovery Services. We have the experience, technology and processes in place to start collecting on accounts immediately.
More importantly, our gentler approach places a lot of emphasis on preserving the patient-provider relationship. The last thing a doctor or practice administrator wants is to lose their doctor/patient relationship due to unresolved billing issues or a complaint about their billing partner. We will go the extra mile to protect your reputation!
