Frequently Asked Questions on Bill Collections
American Med Systems has been a successful collection agency and medical billing agency since 1996. The CEO, Raymond Eckert, has been involved in the industry since 1984. Our services include medical collections and commercial collections. American Corporate Recovery, a subsidiary, works on commercial collections.
We work balances as low as $50.00, unless all service dates total $50 or more.
We offer several options. Either secure email or a 24/7 access portal where accounts can be entered.
We work on commission only. If we don't collect the account, there is no fee.
There is absolutely no other cost involved. Our fees are as low as 8% and as high as 40%. Age and balance of the account are what determine that fee rate. Accounts over one (1) year old from the date of service are 35%, under one (1) year 25%. Balances under $100 are 30%.
We send a series of collection notices to the debtors that graduate in tone and demand. Our philosophy is that notices do not collect revenue, phone calls do.
Yes, only with your approval. Disputes are deleted if we are unable to prove the debt.
If our notice or call generated the payment, that is taken as a pay direct, it must be reported to us, so we can apply it to the debtor's account at the full fee. If we didn't send a notice out on the account yet, but had it in our system, the fee is half of the regular fee.
We are trained to collect revenue and ask for payments. This is what we do for a living and are very successful at it. We can accept credit cards, checks by phone, and payment via our website. We are trained medical collectors who know how to talk to patients and know how to understand medical insurance questions. Our commercial collections are worked by an entirely separate department by well-trained recovery agents.
Absolutely not. It's an agreement that allows us to work on your accounts, and all we need is a 30-day prior written notice from you to stop, very simple and straightforward.
