GreenFlag: Cost Efficient Reduce in-house costs dramatically, by having the insurance company contact you directly. A low fixed rate that equals pennies on the dollar collected. Low, fixed cost allows our service to be utilized on claims as early as days past due. Carriers pay you directly – no waiting days to have access to your capital. The program works as an extension of your billing office
GreenFlag: Easy to Use GreenFlag standardizes the accounts receivable procedure: – We work the claims you choose, making A/R more predictable and cash flow steadier We contact the insurance companies on your behalf regarding unpaid claims. Since we are regarded as a third party, the insurance company must respond to you regarding the resolve of unpaid claims or their bond rating will be adversely affected. Insurance carriers will then contact your staff to provide you with the resolve on claims we submitted on your behalf. Claims can be easily submitted/uploaded and managed 24/7 on the internet via our ONYX Customer Portal (OCP)
Hidden Cost of On-Hold Time # of insurance follow up personnel If your insurance billing clerk is on hold for just 3 calls per day at 20 minutes per call to follow up on just 3 claims, and if they work 50 weeks per year, you are paying.... Assumption: Hourly Wage = $15.00 (including overhead) 2 Amount paid per year for employee’s to sit on hold $7,500

Why GreenFlag Profit Recovery? Insurance carrier by-laws and internal policies typically require immediate response to our licensed third party contacts. Our third party demand moves the responsibility for the claim from a clerk to a supervisor, who settles the claim more quickly. Our average fixed fee of less than $10.00 per claim allows you to utilize this unique service on claims as early as days past-due.
