Adams County ambulance board looking into options to collect unpaid bills

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The Adams County Ambulance Board is also looking for ways to generate money, including exploring its options to collect many unpaid bills.

Tuesday, the board decided to pursue working with Medical Business Resources, and cutting ties with Intermedix, its current bill collection company.

Adams County Ambulance Director Paul Davis said Intermedix just isn't doing a sufficient job collecting unpaid bills.

"We realized that our fee increases weren't generating the type of revenue that we expected so early this year we contacted MBR to do an audit to determine if there was any shortfall and there was," said Davis. 

The board learned in July the department could have collected an additional $238,000 if there were more thorough follow-ups on accounts.
