What is the advantage to using a Medical Billing Service?
The two main things that CHRM offers is collaborative experience and expertise brought together in one place to create a comprehensive and efficient medical billing process and economy of scale. Simply put, CHRM can afford to hire highly skilled medical billers and coders to oversee every step of the medical billing process and are able to provide ongoing medical billing and coding training to our staff that is difficult to match with in-house billing due to budgetary limitations.
