KSL

Focusing on Multispecialty Billing

Our mission is simple: To Grow Your Medical Practice's Revenue. Our primary service is handling your billing and collections, and we have consistently achieved results above industry standards for important benchmarks like Days in A/R and Net Collection Percentage.

The science of medicine is hard enough. The science of profitably delivering care is another discipline altogether.

At KSL, we believe your focus is medicine, while our focus is exclusively the business of medicine. Because of our focus and years of experience, we have developed a proven methodology for every step of the revenue cycle, selected the best Practice Management System and Electronic Medical Record technology, and hand-picked and developed a top-flight talented team. The result is a system that consistently generates profitable returns for your practice.

We will help you collect money you have already earned, so the end result is that your job becomes easier and more efficient, and your bottom line increases.

Why KSL?

If you are contemplating outsourcing, we recommend you allow us to conduct a formal analysis of your practice to see if outsourcing is appropriate for your practice. An outsourcing arrangement must ensure that the dollars invested generate a positive return. That is, you should outsource to boost revenue, increase your cash flow or save money.

The result is a system that consistently generates profitable returns for your practice.

Automation by itself does not solve the problem. It can only work if the practice’s underlying revenue cycle processes are sound. From collecting accurate information, and verifying coverage, to properly submitting bills and following up on unpaid patient balances and denied claims.

The KSL Advantage:

The right experience.

The right software and technology.

The best people.

The "best practices" policies.

Exceptional customer service.

These are the elements of the KSL Advantage.

KSL brings you caring, hardworking people who treat your account as their business, value-added services tailored to help your operation run more efficiently; more than "billing only" competitors, KSL maximizes your revenue and profits. That's the KSL advantage.

If increasing your profitability were as simple as increasing volume, we would simply advise you to take on more patients. Instead, our approach is designed to help you capture reimbursement for the work you are already doing – revenue you are entitled to--but may be slipping through your fingers, due to errors or oversights.

    Billing and Collections

While You Practice Medicine, We Take Care of Your Revenue Stream

At the heart of KSL's services are billing and collections. While you practice medicine, we take care of your revenue stream. We can uncover lost revenue, decrease days in Accounts Receivable, and increase your cash flow.

Medical Billing is as Complex as Medicine Itself

Optimizing your practice's revenues is much more than submitting the right claims. We look at the entire process from the very beginning when a charge is first entered, through claims auditing and editing by the biller, claims submission, claims monitoring, and ultimately receipt of payment.
