PMG & Gaston Family Health Services: More Than 1 Million Encounters
Gaston Family Health Services (GFHS) has navigated changes in Managed Medicaid and the payor mix, seen the birth of the Affordable Care Act and addressed the challenges associated with reductions in funding. In addition, the organization recently transitioned to new clinic management and electronic medical records software. PMG has been there for GFHS every step of the way, processing more than 1 million encounters to date.
“I feel like I get the attention I deserve when I call and my requests never fall on deaf ears. That’s a big thing for me. I’d recommend PMG as a billing service for any FQHC.”

Improving CHC Cash Flow Takes the Right Team
Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center’s new CEO noticed immediately that there were cash flow problems and knew he has to take action. Trusted partners CPCA introduced him to the experts at PMG. The result was an annual increase of over $1.9 million in revenue.
“As a strategic partner since 2014, PMG has delivered unmatched expertise in revenue cycle management (RCM) to CPCA members. Because PMG focuses exclusively on the RCM of community health centers, we found that their service line was the best fit for our members. We have a long history of working with PMG and we look forward to building on that into the future.”

Data Drives FQHC Success
Like many CHCs, The Dimock Center had purchased complex practice-management and billing software systems. And like many CHCs, Dimock was struggling to make these systems fit its needs. PMG was able to refine Dimock’s existing systems and raised monthly collections from $200,000 to over $800,000.
“The fact that PMG specializes in billing for Health Centers specifically is the most crucial factor in our mutual success. There are thousands of medical billing companies that think they can help any practice. That is just not the case. PMG’s expertise in the Health Center arena differentiates them from all the rest and gives their clients a leg up that would not exist otherwise. We feel a sense of peace knowing that a team of experts is there to support our revenue cycle in a multitude of aspects. This allows our organization to focus the bulk of our energy on caring for our patients, who need it the most.”

Billing is Not Revenue Cycle Management
Advantage Health Centers was just looking for help with billing when they hired PMG. What they got was better billing and a whole lot more. By looking beyond billing and building a true revenue cycle solution, PMG was able to increase Advantage’s blended encounter rate by over 50 percent.
“Our Account Manager is great to work with and her response time to our questions is kept to a minimal.”
