No, we do not. We live in a global economy and Worth Healthcare understands that some organizations feel the need to outsource healthcare billing services to foreign based third-party service entities. Worth Healthcare does not do this type of outsourcing but it’s not because we are biased against foreign based entities.
Many firms in our industry have become “front-companies” or shell organizations that have a USA based address with some local sales personnel but all the real work is done by low paid personnel in other countries. Worth Healthcare believes in transparency and will not mislead clients in this manner.
There are several reasons why we’ve decided not to outsource to third-party foreign entities. We want our Billing Specialists to have a close relationship with their clients and most are located near our client’s offices. There is a noticeable difference between basic outsourced data entry services and what is required of our Professional Healthcare Billing Specialist in 2017 and beyond. We are also very cautious about the fact that HIPAA law does not apply to nor is it truly enforceable in other countries. We don’t want to take undo risks with our client’s Protected Health Information because it’s already hard enough to protect right here in the USA.
