Gateway Medical Solutions Mission
Gateway Medical Solutions is committed to maintaining a high quality of integrity, compliance, and ethics. The company’s mission is to streamline the claim process while improving customer service and offering comprehensive medical billing services. The caring and friendly staff will always be happy to assist and provide expertise with educational seminars as well as working one on one with client office staff and training with the AdvancedMD practice management system.
GMS Customer Service
Each client is assigned a designated team including a medical biller, payment poster, accounts resolution specialist, credentialing specialist, and collections specialist. All team members are available to providers and their staff during business hours. GMS assumes all phone calls from patients regarding statements and accounts to help lessen the load for your front office staff.
How GMS Works Claims
Once you submit your charges to GMS, a team reviews the superbill, verifies insurance coverage, and submits the claim to insurance. Prior to being sent to insurance, GMS uses the claim scrubber offered by AdvancedMD, which scrubs for thousands of possible errors ensuring clean claim submission. All denials are worked immediately and our 120+ day A/R is always well under the industry standard of 10% of outstanding charges.
Transitioning to GMS
Since the company’s inception, GMS has used AdvancedMD practice management. GMS is an expert in AdvancedMD and is confident in the company’s ability to meet and exceed billing expectations. Providers and office staff have full access to billing records and can access hundreds of reports with real-time data. Providers are welcome to utilize AdvancedMD EHR or a separate EHR of their choosing. GMS’ goal is to keep its clients comfortable in the software they use daily.
