Billing Services Procurement Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld
Date:12/28/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 28, 2013

Billing services has a buyer power score of 4.3, representing an advantageous environment for buyers. The fragmented nature of the of the industry benefits the buyer greatly, as many potential vendors exist that can provide a similar level of service. Additionally, the fee structure, where a vendor is paid by a percentage of the total billings collected, incentivizes the vendor to collect as much of the outstanding payments as it can. “This removes much of the need for a buyer to verify quality of service, as the vendor receives payment equivalent to quality of services rendered, though potential vendors still need to be vetted,” says IBISWorld business research analyst Dale Schmidt. As a result, prices remain remarkably stable. In addition, profit levels are moderate, i.e. in line with other outsourced professional services firms. This gives buyers some power in price negotiation, though the price range is generally narrow.

Buyer negotiation power is helped by available substitute services. In the past, billing services were conducted almost entirely in-house. Outsourced billing services proliferated in the early 2000s, but it is not universal. In recent years, business analytics software, especially practice management software for healthcare providers, have provided much of the functionality of an outsourced billing service. “However, billing services vendors offer value through their ability to follow up unpaid bills with rigor, which most in-house departments cannot match,” says Schmidt.

The primary buyers of billing services are healthcare providers. The aging of the US population and the expansion of health insurance following the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 will steadily drive up demand for healthcare goods and services. The increased billing load will push billing services providers to increase rates for all buyers slowly over the next three years.
