USPS Certified Mail for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers

Send Medical Debt and Patient Dismissal Letters Using Certified Mail

Healthcare

Certified Mail is used by healthcare providers and medical offices when it’s important to prove that the correspondence was delivered. One of the most common examples is account receivables management. With healthcare representing nearly 20% of GNP, more than $140 billion of medical debt is outstanding at any given time.

State Laws Often Require Medical Debt Collection Notices To Be Sent Certified Mail
Many states have passed laws to guide how healthcare providers and debt collection agencies communicate with the holders of this medical debt. A good example is the state of Nevada, which requires that a healthcare provider to mail a “Final Demand Notice” by Certified Mail at least 60 days before submitting the debt to a debt collection agency.

Healthcare Providers Use Certified Mail Software to Manage Mailing Programs
