About Us

At ML Medical Billing, we take a high-volume, expert approach to helping you solve a basic problem: How to capture every penny without wasting valuable resources on the time-consuming, complicated, and often tedious necessity of bill collection and claims processing. Simply put, we get you paid faster and easier.

Established in 1985, ML Medical Billing is a family-owned company that services more than 150 practices nationally between our branches in Illinois, Florida, and California.

With ML Medical Billing, there’s no more worrying about costly employee benefits and salaries, absences, employee turnover, continuing education, and claims/statement mailing costs. We outsource your billing process to increase revenue and slash administrative costs. As a full-service medical billing firm, we handle all aspects of the collections, A/R, and claims submission process for practices of all sizes.

Our highly trained and experienced executives stay ahead of the curve when it comes to new rules, regulations, and industry trends that could affect the business end of your practice. We recognize when your needs change and we make the necessary adjustments for you.

Why Choose ML Medical Billing?

Industry research and survey results estimate that the average medical practice in the United States spends approximately $83,000 every year on the administrative costs associated with physician insurance claims processing and collections. In addition, medical and practice support staff spends an average of 20 hours or more each week working on the medical billings and claims submission process.

Those figures don’t account for the portion of revenue lost on outstanding and unpaid claims.  While administrative costs and procedures are a necessary component to any service provider, every dollar and hour spent on the medical billing services and claims process is an investment and resource being diverted from what matters most to you: Offering patients the highest quality care possible.

And with ML Medical Billing, you get the highest quality care possible, too. We come to your office to analyze how your practice works. We get to know you and all of your staff members so that we can improve your efficiency and match you with the perfect ML account executive.

We help you streamline your systems and processes. We identify areas of confusion for your patients and help you clarify them. We even set up text and email billing reminders that make it easier for your patients to pay you on time.

  • Monitoring and advocacy: When we set up your account, we request copies of your practice’s contracts and related fee schedules. We use this information to set up our system profiles for your practice. We then monitor expected reimbursement to realize receipts and appeal any underpayments and/or denials. When necessary, we directly contact your managed care representative to resolve any issues. We will keep you aware of these problems and their resolution every step of the way.
