In addition to our work in private practice, VGA has contributed professional content to the industry resources AAPC, PhysiciansPractice.com, MedPageToday.com and BC Advantage Magazine. VGA also created a CME activity on the Business of Healthcare through our sister company, Creative Practice Solutions, and a joint sponsorship with the New York State Medical Society.
Commitment to Results
All of VGAs systems are completely transparent and we correspond with our clients on an almost daily basis. The transition to our services is nearly seamless, as we work with your existing billing software, or, if you don't have one, provide one for you. As a concierge service, VGA services a select number of healthcare providers in private practice with a level of service and attention to detail that is unparalleled in the industry.
VGA has developed a business model that allows for the nurturing and maintenance of "quality" over "quantity." Our company was started under the philosophy of combining a hands-on consulting approach with on going billing support. We consider ourselves the "anti-billing service," billing service, in the sense that we are not an anonymous company with little to no accountability or communication with our clients.
VGA Billing Services was established in 1997 to provide Billing, Consulting and Management services for private Surgical Specialists and affiliated practices. We have over 30 years of experience in outpatient billing and practice management in both private practice and outpatient hospital settings.
