Columbia, September 17, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) – EMEDIX® Reimbursement Solutions, a division of CompuGroup Medical US, is proud to announce its partnership with BHSA which became final in the month of August. EMEDIX Reimbursement Solutions has been chosen to improve revenue cycle management for 33 addiction service sites throughout the state of South Carolina. EMEDIX’s dedication to good service and strong support has allowed them to leverage existing relationships with several BHSA agencies to attain the business of the entire group. BHSA was looking to implement a reliable solution state-wide that could help the local authorities manage and send claims electronically at a competitive price. EMEDIX was able to meet and exceed their expectations in all areas.
“The key benefit of working with EMEDIX in the past and moving forward has been their ability to adapt to behavioral healthcare business model. Their solutions will save us time and increase reimbursements so that we can stay dedicated to our mission of treating the community,” says John Coffin, BHSA President and Executive Director of Shoreline Behavioral Health Services in Horry County.
The group will complete the implementation throughout the state in three waves beginning October 1, 2013. During that time EMEDIX will collaborate with the BHSA team and member agencies to ensure a seamless transition to ensure the groups begin to experience higher efficiency in claims settlement and reimbursements.
“EMEDIX is a reliable, growing company, committed to providing solutions that can meet today’s demands and tomorrow’s advances. We are proud to partner with BHSA member agencies to support them as they provide community-based services for all 46 counties in South Carolina,” says Niels Vildbrad, Vice President of EMEDIX.
