Focus on Practicing Medicine…Not Processing Claims
Fast Track understands that physicians require two things: to save time and money and to partner with medical billing professionals who provide a quick return for the investment. Fast Track Medical Billing addresses all facets of the medical billing process and offers tailored solutions that best meet the practice’s requirements.
With ever-changing insurance rules and HIPAA regulations, handling healthcare reimbursement and processing medical claims in-house is too complex to maintain. Outsourcing the medical billing function to Fast Track enables physicians to focus on the critical care of their patients instead of administrative tasks.
When medical billing falls behind, payment is held-up. Fast Track is here to ensure this does not happen to your practice.

Within 24 hours of receipt.
Payment will be received, on average, within 7-21 days.
Normally, patient billing is triggered automatically when the payment is posted by the insurance company, assuming there is a balance due. If the claim is subject to contractual limits, FTMB will credit the patient’s account accordingly and bill for the balance. If a co-payment is made at the time of service, Fast Track will need to be notified in order to credit the account properly. Fast Track then follows up on outstanding patient accounts at 30, 60, and 90 days in accordance with standard practice.
Normally the provider receives payment directly from the insurance companies. In most cases, payments are posted through electronic remittance advice. In some cases, paper EOBs are required and in order to apply proper credit and adjustments, FTMB requires a copy of the EOB. When private payments and co-pays are made to the physician, FTMB requires a copy of the receipt and/or checks in order to credit the patient’s account.
The choice is up to the physician and dependent upon the volume of claims that the office generates. FTMB can establish a pick-up schedule, or the information can either be scanned or sent by U.S. Postal Service to FTMB’s office. All claims are processed within one business day of receipt. If the need should arise for additional information for a claim to be processed, FTMB will contact your staff.
