PITTSBURGH, Dec. 16 MED3OOO, Inc., a national healthcare management, technology, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) billing company, has been able to help the City of Newark, Ohio recover lost EMS transport revenue that was not being billed to insurance companies.
After partnering with MED3OOO for EMS Billing and Revenue Recovery, the City of Newark Division Fire & EMS department is now able to bill and collect revenues from insurance carriers for ambulance transports more efficiently and with no out-of-pocket expense to the community.
Mayor Bob Diebold recently announced that the EMS revenue recovery program, which he championed as a council member in 2007, has earned the City $1,680,000 for the 12-month period ending November 30, 2008. When the program was originally passed, the former council member and current mayor projected maximum revenues of $1,525,000 annually for the City.
"The EMS revenue we have recovered has allowed us to hire an additional seven fire fighters to provide increased safety services to the residents of Newark, and has provided important funding for capital improvements," said Mayor Bob Diebold. "Our EMS billing partner, MED3OOO, has done an outstanding job producing important revenues for the City. This program is a huge success for the City of Newark and is providing important funds during very difficult financial times."
