AR Services (ARS) is a Central Business Office, self-pay billing, payment plan management and medical financing company owned and directed by a subset of Western Healthcare Alliance members and housed together with A-1 Collection Agency in a limited-liability company, Healthcare Management, LLC (HCM). Through this corporate structure, ARS distributes equity to those participating in programs semi-annually to offset costs and improve the bottom lines of rural healthcare providers.
With a dedicated healthcare focus, ARS works with critical access hospitals, large health systems, physician groups and skilled nursing organizations to provide experienced billing services. ARS understands that business offices and finance departments in rural locations are often under-staffed and overburdened with work and can help relieve that burden.
ARS’s friendly financial counselors help patients’ navigate and manage their account while working with the healthcare provider’s billing process. ARS’s solutions are designed for rural and community facilities looking to help their business office and finance departments become more efficient, while making patients happy with the billing and collections process.
