MAXIMIZING REVENUE with the most efficient process & technology available.
OUR BILLING PROCESS
Before beginning the billing process, FREMS will work with you to customize any aspect of the billing process. We understand the need for unique bill schedules, for example, many accounts utilize “soft” billing for residents versus non-residents and we are happy to comply. Not to mention, your department logo can be added to all bills, statements, and invoices for personalization. The following bill schedule chart is a template that can be altered to meet any specification you desire.

Because a significant number of accounts remain uninsured after an intensive insurance discovery process, scoring the likelihood of accounts to qualify for Medicaid or Charity plans is the next natural step in the process. Along with this, accounts are grouped according to payment likelihood.
