QMC has provided emergency medical transportation billing services since 1991.
QMC’s business is 100% dedicated to providing billing and reimbursement services for air and ground emergency medical transportation organizations. We do not have any other sources of revenue or other lines of business.
QMC is both! While we’ve grown through the years from two to more than 400 employees, we still give every client the same attention and superior service we set out to deliver 27 years ago. With QMC, you get the experience of a large company with all the personalized service of a small one.
Most of the time, QMC charges a percentage of the net revenue collected on behalf of the client during the previous month. A percentage-based fee benefits the client because it doesn’t require an upfront cash investment while it does incentivize your billing partner to work every account to its maximum allowable reimbursement. We can also structure pricing as a flat monthly rate, a per trip fee, or other preferred method.
Yes! QMC continually invests in our compliance infrastructure to ensure that we are up to date on every facet of EMS billing regulatory compliance at every level – local, state and federal. Our compliance infrastructure is comprised of dedicated compliance staff including a Corporate Compliance Officer and Certified Ambulance Privacy Officer; regular internal and external audits including an annual third-party audit performed by the law firm of Page, Wolfberg and Wirth (PWW); and the counsel of industry experts via our relationship with PWW for ongoing compliance expertise.

QMC wants to be a member of your team, not just your billing company. The tempo of our client relationships is dictated by the needs of the client. We’re here to work hand in hand with our clients, and have the staff to back up this approach. We recommend that client leadership meet with their QMC billing team at least once a month.
Yes! QMC works with each client to understand the reports they need, how often they need them, and how they want to receive them. Then we prepare a set of reports that will be run per the schedule (e.g. monthly, weekly, bi-monthly) and sent to the right client contact via email or hardcopy. We know that billing results improve when our clients are engaged, which is why we provide the tools to stay informed throughout our partnership.
