Why Work with a Medical Collection Agency?
You’re in the business of healthcare, not medical collections. But your practice needs cash flow to pay staff, suppliers, rent, and the many costs associated with a medical practice. When your patients neglect to pay, your business suffers. A medical collection agency handles the work you don’t want to do. In addition to medical collections, we also offer pre-collection services. Outsource your busy work to the experts.
The Only Medical Collection Agency with a P.H.D.
Summit’s team has over 27 years of experience in medical collections and a solid grasp on the nuances of insurance reimbursement. But what makes us truly different is our compassion. Through our “P.H.D. Philosophy” (Preserve Human Dignity), we let patients know you’re serious about getting paid while still treating them with courtesy and respect. Kindness is our recipe for (your) success.
A Name You Can Trust
Summit A•R is proud to be rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau, and a member in good standing of ACA International and the International Association of Commercial Collectors.
View Our Collection Progress In Real Time, Any Time.
There are no secrets here: with our user-friendly, fully HIPAA-compliant portal, you can see the status of our debt recovery efforts anytime, anywhere. View payment activity, place new accounts for collection, download reports, and more. Your business relies on getting paid for the services you’ve provided. When it comes to medical collections, you have a right to know how we’re doing.
How soon do you get paid? We aim to complete medical collections within 90 days. While some debts can be collected within just a few days, others take longer. If we cannot get in touch with the person responsible for the obligation, we have licensed private investigators who can track down the responsible party.

Summit was there every step of the way with patience, good humor, and advice. We received payments in record time. I will definitely use Summit again for any of our debt collection needs.
Summit AR handled the accounts extremely professionally and kept that quality working relationship with our client intact. Best of all we received a 75% recovery rate. I would recommend them to any company.
You are definitely not the typical collection agency. I’ve experienced nothing but professionalism and unexpectedly good results versus my former agency. You give collection agencies a good name!
