Texas Ambulance Billing Services Company Emergicon Continues Expansion With Opening Of New Facility
DALLAS, Oct. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Dallas-based ambulance billing services company Emergicon marked six years of continuous business growth and success Thursday night with an open house reception and tour of its new Emergicon Reimbursement Services facility in Gun Barrel City, Texas. Local elected officials, members of the community and business leaders joined current clients and staff to celebrate the company’s expansion.
“It’s great to see Emergicon enjoying success and helping to grow jobs in Texas,” said Gun Barrel City Economic Development Corporation board president, Steve Webster. “Our local communities rely on well-managed companies like Emergicon to help build this economy. We’re glad the company chose to expand their reimbursement services operation here.”
Christopher Turner is the president and CEO of Emergicon and is a resident of Dallas. While serving as the chief financial officer of CareFlite, the second oldest air medical transportation service in Texas, Turner saw a great need for a better way of processing ambulance claims. With only two employees, he started Emergicon in 2006 to offer better and more effective billing services to EMS providers. Today, Emergicon employs more than 25 Texans and the company continues to grow. Turner believes his expertise in healthcare management supported by a knowledgeable staff offering 50 years of collective industry experience are the reasons for the company’s success.
“It takes human know-how and resolve to achieve the kind of results we deliver. Our staff and the top customer service we provide continue to raise the bar in the ambulance billing services industry,” said Turner. “We know the more reimbursement we secure for our clients, the more revenue they have to spend on important municipal programs or, in the case of our private clients, better equipment and more staff. I’m excited to see we’re making a difference in the communities we serve.”
Coppell EMS Chief, Gregg Loyd reported this week that since hiring Emergicon, the city’s cash receipts for ambulance services are up by more than 180% from the previous year when the city was working with an Emergicon competitor.
“In 2011, the City of Coppell saw only $165,000 in EMS reimbursements. Since Emergicon took over our ambulance billing, the city has seen a dramatic increase in collections. We realized more than $462,000 in cash receipts for the 2012 fiscal year,” said Chief Loyd. “We couldn’t be more pleased with these results.”
Emergicon bills more than 100,000 runs each year for its growing list of 40 Texas-based clients.
