Who We Are

Our Organization

Customer service is paramount to the success of Magnet Solutions and our clients.  Our Patient Account Representatives are trained to treat all patients with the utmost respect and compassion to provide them with a dignified experience while working to resolve their balance.  Our representatives are sensitive to the fact that some patients will require time to satisfy a balance and, while attempting always to minimize the time required to satisfy that amount, will work with a patient to achieve a mutually acceptable resolution.

We know that our success is directly tied to the way we work with our clients and their patients. We also understand that our clients need to be able to collect on their accounts while maintaining their customers’ satisfaction.  Therefore, we strive to find the balance where we are optimizing returns for our clients while simultaneously protecting their reputations.

Our entire team goes through continuing education and quality improvement to insure that we provide the highest level of service available to our clients at all times. Our company’s core values encompass the training which employees receive and reiterate our dedication to customer service.  These core values combined with our high ethical standards and customer service focus, continue to make Magnet Solutions your best option for healthcare receivables management services. 

Our formula has been tested, and proven by our continuing success and client satisfaction.
