The benefits of outsourcing to a Birmingham medical billing company
Outsourcing your medical billing to a local medical coding company is the right move for many different medical practices. Aside from the freedom that it gives you when it comes to your workload, you can become a much more profitable practice by outsourcing your medical billing.
Here are just some of the things that you'll save money on if you choose to outsource your medical coding to a Birmingham team:
Savings opportunity #1
Medical billing staff expenses
A well-training medical billing team inhouse at your medical practice can be expensive. Especially when you take other factors into consideration. Each employee will expect a raise every year and potentially more as they become more as they stay on your team. Also, you have to provide benefits and insurance, and handle all of the sick days that may occur.
Savings opportunity #2
Paying for office space in Birmingham
Birmingham isn't a cheap city to have a medical practice in as office spaces continue to rise in price. Having an inhouse medical billing team means that you have to set aside an area of your office for them to work. Choosing to outsource your medical billing services in Birmingham, AL allows you to either have a smaller, more affordable office or to utilize their workspace for other vital aspects of your practice.
Savings opportunity #3
Benefits & ongoing training of staff
As a medical practice owner, you likely know that there are additional expenses to having employees than just their salaries. Here are just some of the additional expenses that you can expect from keeping your team inhouse.
- Ongoing education
- and much more
At Quest National Services in Birmingham, AL, we take care of all of these expenses for our medical billing team, so you don't have to.
Savings opportunity #4
Only pay your medical billing team when you get paid
Your inhouse medical billing staff has a set salary that you have to pay no matter what is going on in the world. If you have to shut down for an emergency or traffic is slow at your office, you're still paying them the same amount no matter what. Working with a local Birmingham medical billing team means that we only get paid if you do. Our payment is based on a percentage of your revenue, so if revenue is low at your practice, you won't feel nearly as much financial pressure paying for medical billing services.
What our clients are saying
"I would recommend Quest without reservation."
"We were a busy Urological group with four clinicians and had just been informed by our Medical Billing Service that they were closing their operation. We needed to associate with a new service quickly. We heard about Quest through our IPA, an organization where I am on the board. Quest was interested in working with more practices in our area and had a very good local and national reputation.
Adam and his team promptly visited with us. We had also met with other services but it became clear that Quest would be our choice. Quest was knowledgeable, hands-on, transparent, flexible, and ready to move ahead quickly. As promised, things did move ahead quickly and seamlessly.
Things have continued to work out well. In retrospect, Quest has been far superior to our previous billing service. It has been a pleasure to work with Adam and his team. I would recommend Quest without reservation."

"They did a great job with our billing."

"…saving our practice tens of thousands of dollars."
"Quest National Services and Adam have been vital to the success of the Highland OBGYN practice. Quest National was able to take on our account in a very quick manner and has transitioned our practice from one software to another with little down time ultimately saving our practice tens of thousands of dollars. The team at Quest National have been the partners my growing OBGYN practice has needed. Most important for me is their ability to provide us redundancy when we otherwise wouldn’t have it. I couldn’t be more thankful for their dedication to our practice."Read More

"Worked with our existing software so that we didn’t have to make expensive changes"
"My husband and I have a small practice but we were looking for a medical billing company to consult us. We originally started with a local company with some satisfaction. However, our biggest problem was that they wanted us to change our existing EMR to software that they worked with. Quest National Services worked with our existing software so that we didn’t have to make expensive changes to our infrastructure. That saved us a lot of time and headache. I would definitely say that was one of the main reasons for why we switched and why we continue to work with Quest. As a small practice, they helped us without draining our resources."Read More
"I was impressed almost immediately by their transparency and consistent communication"
"As an administrator of a multi specialty clinic, I was looking for a service that provided timely and consistent communication. I found in prior engagements with our prior 2 billing companies neither provided the level of communication or transparency our principals expected. When I was introduced to Quest I was impressed almost immediately by their transparency and consistent communication. We've been with them now 5 months and are so happy we made the move."Read More
"Quest has made the process so transparent and allowed us to increase our profits"
"Our company made the decision to outsource our medical billing to Quest and we have been incredibly pleased with the results. The knowledge, dedication, and customer service provided by their team is truly first class!
When we came to Quest, we had a hard time recovering our A/R and ensuring the accuracy of our billing. Quest has made the process so transparent and allowed us to increase our profits, while also pointing out and assisting in areas of improvement.
I really appreciate the work of Nancy and her team, and the responsiveness of the CEO, Adam. They both always find the time to address any questions or problems we are having!"
"Quest lowered our time in accounts receivable by close to two weeks"
"Quest has made a huge difference in our business, even within the limited amount of time that we’ve been using their services. We kept our current EMR and, in less than six months, Quest lowered our time in accounts receivable by close to two weeks! I couldn’t believe it. We’ve been very pleased with the services and responsiveness of their staff so far. We were able to get reimbursed faster which was so important. Moreover, Quest took over the burden of dealing with aging receivables so we could focus more on business. They offered so many options and services and we were able to find the perfect solution for us. Thanks to Adam and everyone at Quest!"Read More
