Ask clients why they consider IHMS a trusted partner and time and again they’ll say it’s because of the people.
We are not strangers to health care eligibility and revenue-cycle management; our team boasts a combined 100-plus years of experience in self-pay and government-related receivables management. This includes a deep understanding of medical eligibility criteria, including complex Medicaid requirements.
But as important as our collective years of experience is a culture of caring that starts at the top of the organization. You see, we are not just a collection of people completing a task. At the core of what we do are the patients who we are helping the most. If we are successful in helping them, then everyone wins.
And unlike other revenue cycle management firms, we are independently owned, and everyone – including our founders – plays an active role in every account.
Meet our seasoned management team and feel free to contact them with any questions.
