Christ Community Health Services Selects Priority Management Group for Revenue Cycle Management Services

Priority Management Group Inc. (PMG), a leading supplier of revenue cycle management and consulting services to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), has entered into an agreement to serve Christ Community Health Services Inc. (CCHS), of Memphis, Tenn.

PMG will provide CCHS with:

  • a comprehensive suite of revenue cycle services in areas such as reporting, billing software maintenance, denial management and claims clearinghouse;
  • consulting services, including a full, onsite operational assessment to improve effectiveness and efficiency of front-end billing processes; and
  • semi-annual in-service training sessions to ensure appropriate coding by physicians.

CCHS spans seven clinic locations and served 44,584 active patients in 2012. The health center offers a wide range of primary health, specialty and dental care services in addition to lab, pharmacy and HIV care. Since its founding in 1995, the organization has steadily increased the number of patients served, unduplicated encounters, locations and programs delivered in its service area.

A 330-funded grantee, CCHS serves clients regardless of their ability to pay. The FQHC approached PMG for assistance across many areas, including claims processing, billing system management, billing training, lag time related to cash flow, reporting, benchmarking and challenges associated with a very complex billing process.

"PMG is proud to welcome CCHS to our ever increasing list of community health center clients," said PMG vice president Robert Skeffington. "We are pleased to partner with the health center and allow the staff to focus on their core competency of serving the local community's healthcare needs.

"PMG hopes to create consistently elevated financial results and additional funds through which CCHS may further expand its community outreach and mission. We look forward to a long, mutually rewarding relationship."
