Hospital Billing Solutions for the 21st Century

StenTel is a premium hospital billing and practice management company for hospital systems of all sizes. Our main goal is to make sure that you receive the full financial reimbursements that you are entitled to, as quickly as possible.

We have worked to build a complete and cost effective revenue cycle management solution for our clients. Our time in the business has given us extensive experience with all of the major EMRs and we are a certified Nexgen partner. We pride ourselves on being experts in EMR-centric billing issues and helping you solve your problems.

Our goals:

  1. To obtain for you, as quickly as possible, the full financial reimbursement you are entitled to receive for the services you perform.
  2. To perform these services in a cost effective manner.
Our team:

We have a group of highly qualified billers and certified coders each of whom has been chosen because of their knowledge of and experience with particular medical specialties. The staff we assign to your hospital are experts in those specialties and departments where you have billing and coding needs.

Our evolution:

Along with our billing and coding duties we consider it part of our job to be informed of the ongoing changes in procedure and diagnosis coding (CPT, ICD-9, ICD-10). This knowledge enables us to submit proper claims and help you to remain compliant with regulatory requirements. This results in faster maximum reimbursement for you, reduced denials, and protects you from RAC audits, while also helping you navigate the ICD – 10 transition.

Our history and track record:

We have trained and protected over 1,800 physicians and have become the go-to company for hundreds of hospitals, practices and clinics. In 2013 alone, we coded approximately 2.9 million codes and registered 3.7 million patient accounts. We entered $955.9 million in charges and collected $438 million.

Our Solutions:

Our experience has taught us that each hospital has its own systems, processes, and needs and thus it is not a one-size fits all situation. We work to find the best solution(s) to fit your needs by consulting with you to build a customized model that functions in the way that works best for you .  We use an outsource model, a staffing model (full-time or temporary), we combine billing, coding, QA, RAC audit and ICD – 10 educational support. In short- we combine the best of our resources to provide the outcome that you need. Our solutions have been proven to reduce significant operational costs while improving quality and efficiency for our clients.
