A new case study about a full-service, independent laboratory is now available in our Library.

This lab had locations in multiple Southern states and was experiencing substantial growth, but it's existing billing partner was struggling to handle the increase in claims and meet the evolving needs of the expanding organization.

That all changed when the lab switched to PGM Billing, one of the nation's leading provider of lab billing services.

PGM provided a wide range of services that delivered impressive, sustainable results, including an increase in collections, extensive financial reports and assistance with credentialing.
