Our principals have been involved in providing third-party eligibility services to hospitals since 1992. They believed there was a more efficient and effective way to identify billable Medicaid accounts than what was currently in use. They were right.
Based in Austin, Texas, eScan today operates in 45+ states with over 700 hospital and physician group partners. Since its inception in 2003, eScan has discovered and converted over 250,000 uncompensated care accounts to Medicaid representing over $2 billion dollars in charges.
We have one simple goal - to help you find the money that’s rightfully yours.
