The Lowest Bid ≠ The Lowest Cost
Pursuing the lowest possible price for patient-statements is not the most effective way to reduce your patient billing costs. Providers must factor in the overall cost to bill and collect from patients – from the point of service through collection efforts. Cost reductions are driven not by lower print costs, but by encouraging patients to pay early, reducing the average number of statement cycles, communicating with patients through lower-cost channels, and implementing other strategic process improvements.
