Direct billing beginning question

An "ANYTHING GOES" forum for discussing the interests, issues and concerns of the paramedical examiner community. Sharing ideas, knowledge, experiences and opinions is strongly encouraged.

However, we do ask that all participants respect the rights of others to communicate in whatever manner they wish, positive or negative, and TRY to behave respectfully toward one another when conflicts in views or opinions arise.

Our goal is to create an environment where examiners can speak openly and honestly without the restrictions of forced diplomacy or the constraints of having to observe over-bearing rules of political correctness.

How did the Direct billing business start.
What is the history.
Was it Superior Mobile that started it, and then Portamedic??

No Superior didn't start it.

It started over twenty years ago with some small companies challenging the stranglehold Portamedic (mainly) and others had on dealing with the ins. co's directly.

Portamedic was one of the last to give in and go after direct business when they realized direct examiners weren't going away. They finally realized they were losing a ton of business to their competitors who would deal with direct examiners.
