Glenn Heights hires local EMS billing service provider to boost budget, improve customer service

DALLAS, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Municipalities across the country are looking for new ways to bring more money into city coffers without having to increase taxes. City officials in Glenn Heights, located in Dallas and Ellis Counties, are doing this by hiring Emergicon, a Texas EMS billing services company.

"We expect to see increased collections which will provide additional funds for the budget," said Chief of Police/Acting Public Safety Director Phillip Prasifka. "Also, taxpayers will see increased customer satisfaction and improved consistency, in regards to ambulance billing."

Glenn Heights city officials received bids from other EMS billing companies, but chose Emergicon for several reasons. Chief Prasifka reports that during the proposal process, his team spoke with current Emergicon clients who gave great reports of customer service, something he believes is very important to Glenn Heights residents.

"We're based in Texas. All of our clients are in Texas. We've increased ambulance billing reimbursements for every one of them and we plan to do the same for Glenn Heights," said Emergicon President and CEO Christopher Turner.

Emergicon began providing ambulance billing services for the City of Glenn Heights on September 1, 2012.
