Don’t Believe The Hype

04-11-2014

As a species, we’re vulnerable to hype – whether it’s fads or celebrity news or advertisements for the latest exercise videos or. I’m sure we don’t mean to be so gullible; but it’s easy to be swayed, most often, by the loudest voice in the room.

The collection industry is well aware of how challenging the ‘Court of Public Opinion’ can be. It’s an industry that is vital to the continued health and well-being of the economy. Yet at the same time, it is among the most maligned of industries.

The media is quick to pick up on stories about collection agencies, how we’re the most complained about industry in which people interact with. Numbers are brought to the four front, but with no real context. Without taking a little deeper look into the data, it is easy to assume the collection industry is  full of horrible people whose sole purpose is to take advantage of those most vulnerable. If one tries to challenge that notion, people can always just point to the complaint numbers. However, that is not the prevailing truth of this industry.  It is in collectors’ best interest to collect debt in an ethical and legally compliant manner. And while the loud voices in the room are easy to hear, there are others out there who have had a positive experience with a collection agency. They were able, with the help of a collector, to repay their obligation and get back on a stabler track financially.

To help counterbalance some of the negative press out there, we wanted to take a moment to share a thank-you note we received from a consumer with whom one of our collectors worked:

Thank you so much for being so kind & patient with us. There aren’t to many people in the business that you are in that treat people with kindness the way you do. May god bless you today & always.

This note was sent to 1 of our collectors. This makes us remember that we can help people through a difficult situation. We are very proud of the reputation we have earned and hope to continue to be a good example in the future.


Don't Let Medical Collections Slip Through The Cracks

12-04-2013

Everyday there are more people who need to get treatment for medical purposes. Be it is at a doctor's office or a hospital, insurance companies may at times get overwhelmed with payment requests and forms for all the patients they have. However, doctors, that treated the patients, need to receive their money in a timely manner. Some patients, that don't have insurance, are responsible for paying their own bill, in full. This is where a lot of the time, doctors don't see their money and have to put the bills to a medical collection company.


A medical collection company is going to do all the work for the doctor's office or hospital. The type of work they will perform is to track down the patient, send out billing information to the patient, and start contacting them by phone. They will do all the collection work for the doctor's office. They understand that doctor's and their staff are busy and cannot take time out of their day to contact all the patients and ask for the funds owed. Most medical collection agencies are a division of a larger, professional commercial debt collection agency
.

The collection agency will treat the doctor's patients as their own. This way the doctor office doesn't have to worry or have a fear of losing their patients, just because they started getting collection calls. The agency will let the patients know how much their business is appreciate and will work out a payment plan with them, that will fit their needs. This way the patients will still be able to make some type of payment towards the amount due, until it is paid off in full. You can follow this link for more details on debt collection services 
that your company can utilize.

A medical collection company will also be able to contact the insurance companies to collect payment on the patients account needed. They will be able to work with the insurance company to find out where their portions of the payments are at. This will help keep the insurance company on their toes and distribute the funds needed to cover the patient's bill. 

By using a collection company such as us here at Pioneer Capital Solutions, the doctor's office will be able to get their funds a lot faster and don't have to stress about making those calls themselves. They can be stress free and know that all the accounts are being taken care of, accordingly. The agency will be able to keep the office informed of the process, help keep all the records updated on the patients, and the payments that have been made. This will help the doctor's office to have records they need and any other accounting information.

When To Approach A Medical Collection Company

09-17-2013

Medical practitioners often experience the serious issue of not receiving payments for the services they offer. They deal with many clients, and it often turns out that they are not paid on time. It is important for them to remain focused on the services they offer and not have to worry about tracking down their income. For this reason, it is important to approach a medical collection company that can get your payments in a timely manner. Medical practitioners do not have the time or resources to track down every client they need to in order to get what they are owed. 

Passing that responsibility off to a well established medical debt collection agency  such as us here at Pioneer Capital Solutions will help kickstart the process of getting paid on time. However, it is important to make sure that company is experienced and professional. You will need a medical collection company that is experienced with handling issues relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The biggest advantage to using a company like this does not end with getting the money you are owed, but it also includes maintaining the medical practitioner's reputation. Thus, the process involved will make sure no clients are lost.

Another advantage is that the company will not accept payment unless they actually retrieve the money owed to you. Thus, the risk of hiring them is mitigated. Meanwhile, there is a greater chance that your money will be collected faster then if the medical practitioner tried to collect it themselves. A professional debt collecting company will succeed around 95% of the time, which makes it a task worth leaving to the experts. Simply put, we use tools and technology that our clients will not have access to that helps us facilitate the recovery process.


Not only does a company like us offer services for medical debt payment collections, but we also offer a variety of other similar services related to collecting debt.
