  • Rev-Ignition Shifts Patient Billing to Paperless Solution from PatientPay

DURHAM – Rev-Ignition, a leading revenue cycle management (RCM) company serving a broad network of healthcare providers, will move from a paper-based billing process to a paperless one from PatientPaySM the leader in patient healthcare payment solutions, the companies today announced.

“The decision to eliminate paper from the patient billing process for our clients nationally was driven by the desire to generate faster patient payments for them. The move to PatientPay Paperless℠ is essential to providing ease of payment and convenience for patients as well,” said Terrence Sims, Rev-Ignition’s president. “This simple, relevant, and accommodating use of technology is welcomed at a time when patient portions are on the rise across the nation.”

PatientPay Paperless consistently brings medical groups payments in less than 14 days on average, after a claim has been adjudicated. This is a stark contrast to the paper bill payment cycle which is typically 90 to 120 days.

The key reason payments are received so quickly using PatientPay Paperless is the bill the patient sees is clear and readily understood. PatientPay’s patented technology permits alignment of charges to an Explanation of Benefits, removing any confusion over what has been paid by whom and what is still owed. Nearly 80 percent of PatientPay bills are paid immediately once opened by the patient.
