First Coast Service Options (FCSO) Expands Use of Burgess Products

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- First Coast Service Options (FCSO), a Qualified Independent Contractor (QIC) for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), will expand its use of Burgess products to resolve Medicare reimbursement disputes.  Burgess is recognized as an industry leader in Medicare reimbursement software solutions.

The Burgess Reimbursement System (BRS) will continue to serve as FCSO's primary engine for computing accurate pricing for disputed Medicare claims.  Under this expanded arrangement, FCSO will use the Burgess software solution to resolve reimbursement disputes between health care providers and organizations that offer Medicare Advantage plans such as HMOs and PPOs.

"The BRS system is a sophisticated tool that helps us resolve provider payment disputes accurately and efficiently," says Curtis Lord, FCSO Vice Chairman.  "It is at the core of our payment dispute resolution process and allowed us to accommodate an expanded scope of work." Greg Burgess, Founder and President of Burgess noted, "We look forward to expanding our involvement with FCSO through this CMS contract.  Given the national focus on pricing accuracy, we are pleased to be a trusted source for Medicare Advantage payment dispute resolutions."
