“Over the years, Consensio has been an excellent partner to work with. They have helped us improve our billing levels through provider education, and kept us current with changes in regulations and reimbursement. We really appreciate the proactive approach that the team takes in addressing the challenges that face our practice.”

“The service we have experienced with Consensio has been outstanding with the transition from our previous medical management services company. The relationship began with Consensio sitting down with us and learning about our medical practice and understanding our business needs. This resulted in improvements in our documentation which has delivered on significant improvement in our collections. The Consensio team are responsive and professional, I highly recommend.”

Their billing education and feedback system for our clinicians has resulted in significantly improved documentation and increased collections. Krissy is very responsive, and has even advised our physicians on documentation issues while they are on shift.”
