Since 2011, Community Link Consulting (CLC) has offered in-house billing services, almost exclusively to FQHCs. This focus enables CLC to offer niche-specific billing knowledge most billing companies do not fully understand, such as cost based reimbursement and the application of HRSA-specific sliding fee discount policies. CLC employs 12 qualified, full-time billing professionals, including certified coders, billers, and chart reviewers. The CLC Billing Department engages in ongoing training and certification programs relating to billing compliance, coding, and HIPAA regulations, so that they're up to speed on the ever-changing and ever-challening environment.
CLC billers have experience with all FQHC service types, including: medical, dental, behavioral health, inpatient hospital, outpatient hospital, OMT, OB, and surgery.
CLC’s offices are located in Spokane, Washington, however, billers are able to work remotely and are available to work on-site, be it for full service support, training your billers or project only requests, such as resolving claim issues. Remote trainings are also available. CLC’s billing niche is definitely in the FQHC world. Billing Supervisor Deena Greene describes her department as “stop, drop and roll,” meaning they can easily re-prioritize based on the immediate needs of the client. CLC billers work as an extension of your staff, responsive to your needs and requests. CLC billers are passionate about the work they do and will do their best to help you maximize revenue and clean up your billing systems so that you can focus more on providing care to your patients.
