I first engaged Medical Billing & Collection, to undertake my billing for the above clinic, in 2008.
I am pleased to report that over the years that the staff, at MBC, have always ensured that all aspects of billing, for my medical practice, have been professionally managed, as well as in a timely, and efficient, manner.
I have been very pleased with their performance, their level knowledge, and expertise, which has meant my practice’s billings have been realised to full potential, and that my cashflow has been accurately protected.
Over the years, and notwithstanding, the expansion of MBC, as a billing entity over those last 14 years, the service has improved, not only for the level of expertise that MBC has displayed, for the patient service, but also for the personal, service, that MBC staff has always been very ready to give me and my patients.
This personal service has also included many discussions with MBC staff, and managers, to rapidly resolve any billing issues. This helpful service has been useful, both for resolving patients’ billing problems, and for my personal billing requirements, including help and advice, when dealing with insurance companies.
I have found great value in this long relationship, of personal service, which has become an integral part of both my, and MBC’s, practices.
I have no reservation in my recommending their service to any medical colleagues.
Dr Ian WhitcroftConsultant Dermatologist and Dermatological Surgeon
MBC provides our group practice, Manchester Urology, with a very efficient billing service which frees us completely from the complexities of managing private practice finances, keeps our bad debts to an absolute minimum, and allows our administrative staff to focus on caring for our patients.
Mr Stephen BrownConsultant Urological Surgeon - Manchester Urology
I have found MBC to be professional, efficient and effective in their work. Their staff are diligent and easily accessible with almost instant email responses. Their dashboard is very use friendly, helps monitor financial metrics and makes it easy to generate data for tax returns. Since working with them we have cleared all outstanding/bad debt and have had to write off next to no invoices. They have been pivotal in ensuring the financial streamlining of my practice.!
Abbas RashidConsultant Elbow & Shoulder Surgeon
Very efficient and responsive service. They are a pleasure to deal with. My bad debt levels have fallen significantly since MBC picked up the reins. It's extremely reassuring knowing this aspect of the practice is being taken care of, leaving me more time to focus on patient care.
Dr Andrew GayaConsultant Clinical Oncologist
I am really delighted with the care MBC take of me and in particular the service Simon Brignall has given me since I joined. The billing is efficient and effective and the dashboard means I can keep on top of what is going on. More importantly whenever I have a question or need some advice Simon responds quickly and knowledgeably. I recommend MBC to my friends and colleagues who are looking to improve their practice.
Mr Luke CascariniConsultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
I am delighted with the service that MBC have provided my practice over the years. They are very knowledgeable, efficient and get on with the very important job of billing and collection for my patients freeing me up to focus on the clinical care. The staff are responsive and take great care with me and my patients. I could not recommend them highly enough!
Professor Christopher NuttingClinical Oncologist
Our group has been with MBC for several years now. The transition was seamless, and our bad debt ratio has plummeted. Our dedicated billing expert (Sam) is always very happy to help, with queries from us and patients, and our secretaries have more time to focus on looking after our patients and us. I would highly recommend MBC to any colleague in private practice.
Mr Oliver WisemanConsultant Urologist
I moved to MBC nearly 2 years ago. I have found their services to be first rate and stressfree. They allow my secretary to spend her time looking after my patients rather than dealing with invoices and chasing payments. This makes her relationship with my patients much smoother. In addition, they don’t charge me any commission if someone pays cash or by Credit Card on the day. All in all, I wish I had transferred to MBC years ago.
Professor Tony NarulaConsultant ENT Surgeon
MBC has been able to advise me on all aspects of the financial side of my practice to ensure I am now billing efficiently. It has also added a range of new capabilities such as being able to take payments by debit or credit card without maintaining my own system to achieve this. What I would pass on to other consultants from my experience is to not to let your practice outgrow your current arrangements or a growing practice hide the fact that your practice is not as financially healthy as it could be.
Dr Dinos MissourisConsultant Cardiologist
Transferring my billing and collection to MBC has been a huge success. I joined in 2012 and since then they have collected over 99.99% of what has been invoiced. When I joined I had a backlog of unpaid invoices of over £100,000 which since then has been collected in full. Joining MBC has saved me tens of thousands of pounds which outweighs any fees I have been charged.
Mr Sean MolloyConsultant Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgeon
Throughout secretarial changes, MBC have provided a vital continuity on the billing side, and I'm not sure how I coped without them!
Mr Adrian CaseyNeurosurgeon, Wellington Hospital
I have been with this excellent company since 1995 when they sorted out my billing for me completely which was a complete mess. Since that time they have continued to demonstrate what an excellent company they are providing an excellent service not just for billing but also about invoicing in general, helping with relationships with insurers, Embassies and the like and carrying out various negotiations for me on my behalf. I cannot recommend them too much
Mr Simon MoyesConsultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
As an increasingly busy private psychiatrist, I made some common mistakes as my practice grew:
- I let my PA do my billing
- I failed to keep an accurate eye on debt, and particularly on aged debt
- I told myself that being too assertive with indebted patients would look “commercial” and would damage my relationships with patients and referrers
- I told myself that using a billing company would be expensive and might alienate patients
- Recovered most of the debt (MBC’s fees for the first two years were recovered in the first month)
- Written off unrecoverable debt (I learned that this is vital in order to recoup the higher rate tax already paid, on monies not received!)
- Introduced new procedures to ensure that no patients carried significant debt henceforth
- Better relationships with patients and referrers
- Far less stress on both me and my PA
- Far simpler accounts and record keeping
- Increased practice income
Dr Mike McPhillipsConsultant Psychiatrist
Since I moved to MBC my practice has been transformed and my income improved. Particularly with changes in the private market this kind of service is now essential
Mr Arj ShankarConsultant Pancreaticobility, Sarcoma and General Surgeon
I started using Medical Billing & Collection last year. They are highly professional & meticulous. The cash flow for the practice has improved immensely. Like in many practices, my PA was so busy dealing with phone calls, emails, booking tests and procedures etc.etc.and so credit control was always behind. Not anymore. It's a great relief to have MBC look after that for me.
Dr Duncan DymondConsultant Cardiologist
Using a dedicated billing service has transformed the practice. In particular releasing time to deal with medical aspects of treatment whilst billing details and increasingly complex insurance problems are handled in a professional way by MBC. I cannot recommend highly enough their considerate and efficient service which has benefited patients as well as our practice. Our only regret is not converting earlier.
Professor Will AyliffeConsultant Ophthalmologist
I started using Medical Billing & Collection in 2011 following a recommendation from a friend. Previously my collection rate for private fees was very poor, partly due to my disorganisation in sending out bills or later on checking whether they had been paid. By using MBC's services, my collection rate is now 99% and all I need to do is send a picture of my list with the insurance details written on it. They are very helpful!
Dr Sanjay WijayatilakeConsultant Neuro Anaesthetist
I am very happy to have partnered with MBC for the billing of my private GP practice. They have they been very successful in collecting and reconciling the majority of my outstanding debt which was one of the key reasons I decided to work with them. I had concerns initially of the transition to outsourcing due to the unique and ongoing nature of the relationship a private GP has with their patients. I am happy to report that their staff have provide the same professional service level that my patients expect from my practice that has meant no issues have arisen and patient feedback has been positive
Dr Usha SharmaPrivate GP
Medical Billing & Collection are professional and efficient in billing and collecting money on your behalf from insurance companies, patients and private companies. These issues are becoming more and more difficult and it is better to benefit from experts dealing with them. MBC decreases constraints on doctors private work leaving doctors to focus on delivering the best possible clinical outcomes. They save a lot of time for secretaries who can liaise better with patients. It is also good to separate the practice of medicine from money collection.
Dr Denis E. PellerinConsultant Cardiologist
Being a Consultant, efficiency with accounts and billing is not one of my strengths. I employed Medical Billing & Collection many years ago so that they could perform these tasks for me. I benefit by no longer discovering accounts which have become unrecoverable because they had been lost in my briefcase! Nowadays, there is a great advantage in being represented by a group who are experienced in negotiating fees. These negotiations are complex and it's good to have someone else in your corner ensuring that your fees are optimised at all times. This allows me freedom to focus on the medical side of my practice.
Dr John GoldstoneConsultant Anaesthetist
The staff at Medical Billing & Collection are extremely efficient and helpful. I was nervous at the prospect of moving this responsibility from my PA to a separate billing company. Now I wish I had done it years ago!
Dr Jonathan ClagueConsultant Cardiologist
"Starting out in private practice with large overheads and low margins one can see why it is tempting to do as much as possible yourself to save costs. That is after all what I did. As a result, my billing was a mess and I had a lot of bad debt. Since using MBC I have never looked back. They are polite, professional and chase up every penny. I have no bad debt and not only that I can concentrate on what matters, treating patients without getting involved with the messy business of money, a good separation to have when dealing with patients. I couldn't recommend highly enough."
Mr Ahmad K. MalikConsultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon
A highly efficient professional billing company which is well-manned with speedy courteous responses.... highly recommended
Dr Murtaza KhanConsultant Paediatrician
My colleagues were sceptical that MBC could be better than our efficient secretaries, but they and I were surprised at how much easier our lives were made by outsourcing the billing to MBC - our secretaries had more time and the billing was far more efficient and effective than anyone had expected. We've had no complaints by our patients either so it has worked out very well for all
Mr Marc LaniadoConsultant Urological Surgeon
As an anaesthetist, I have been using MBC for the past year. The amount of time spent on dealing with insurance companies, billing, and chasing bad debts has been improved beyond doubt. I am now free to leave the professionals to competently look after my finances whilst I concentrate on providing clinical services
Dr Wynne DaviesConsultant Anesthetist
In a time when doctors are more mobile and independent it is important that each aspect of their practice is micro-managed. With MBC I have a reliable service for fee negotiation and collection which is satisfying for all
Professor Hiten PatelConsultant Urological Surgeon
Medical Billing and Collection's highly professional team provide me with an impressively efficient service. What's more, their manner of dealing with my patients is exemplary and the level of Bad Debts is negligible
Dr Bryan YoulConsultant Neurophysiologist
I have been very impressed with MBC's service over the past 2 years. My only suggestion would have been for online access to my billing and now they've done that too!
Mr Stephen HamiltonConsultant Plastic Surgeon
Medical Billing and Collection has given me a fantastic service since I first joined them two years ago. They recovered £60,000 of bad debt when I joined with very little fuss. The results speak for themselves. I now have no bad debt and have absolute faith in medical billing running the financial side of my practice. Their fees which are tax deductible are excellent values for money and I would recommend anyone that is considering outsourcing their billing to get in touch with Medical Billing and Collection
Mr R C PollockConsultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBC's phenomenal invoice recovery percentage pays for itself when compared to the cost of bad debts. It also scales very nicely, from polite and gentle reminders up to debt collection for determined non-payers. Better still, MBC frees my secretary to get on with running the clinical side of my practice
Mr Simon Owen-JohnstoneConsultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Medical Billing and Collection have really proved their worth for the following reasons: My patients are happy with them; they are efficient, friendly and business-like; the separation of billing from the secretarial duties, takes a great deal of stress from the relationship of the secretary and doctor with the patients. MBC have a vast knowledge of the working of the insurance companies which provides them with the ability to optimise the charges to the insurers in a fair and proper manner. MBC also look at your practice and ensure that you are charging correctly through the codes. They have a quietly efficient way of collecting the shortfalls from the patient whilst explaining if it is the insurer (an increasing problem), who has dropped the reimbursable fees, not the doctor who has increased them. Income is thus optimised, without fear of offence to the patient, as they are separate from the practice of medicine
Dr Stephanie Kaye BarrettConsultant Physician and Rheumatologist
MBC provide a very efficient, friendly and helpful service which allows me to concentrate on the medical aspects of private patient care. Their staff is always helpful and responsive. The company was recommended to me a few years ago and I am so pleased that I made the switch
Dr Fiona NorwoodConsultant Neurologist
I have been with Medical Billinag for 10 years now and have never regretted the decision! As a result I have recommended numerous colleagues who have been similarly satisfied with the service provided by MBC. I have my own account manager who is always available
