Lawrence, KS (PRWEB) April 25, 2014 -- As part of an ongoing partnership with Salina Regional Health Center, The Midland Group is working in cooperation with full-time staff to resolve many of the hospital’s difficult third-party payer accounts. Work on the project began in late February and is expected to take up to a year to complete. Once complete, The Midland Group will have successfully worked more than 2,500 accounts totaling in excess of $4.5 million.
“We value our ongoing relationship with Salina Regional Health Center, and are looking forward to providing high-quality service and results on this project,” said Roger McCollister, CEO of The Midland Group. “Our specialists have years of experience in working with all payer types, especially in difficult cases and have the expertise needed to work with these payers successfully.”
Salina Regional Health Center assigned the project to The Midland Group as part of the companies’ continued partnership in effect spanning more than 20 years. The Midland Group will be working with all commercial-payer accounts, resolving difficult balances for the hospital. Since 1993, Salina Regional Health Center has partnered with The Midland Group to, among other services, advocate for uninsured patients with Medicaid eligibility application assistance.
Salina Regional Health Center also utilizes the expertise of The Midland Group to resolve commercial payer accounts through accident/liability lien filing and tracking. When a patient is injured in an accident that isn’t his or her fault and hospital bills remain unpaid. The Midland Group works directly with responsible parties and the process to ensure direct payment to the hospital is made when payment is ultimately made following litigation or settlement.
