Accounting Services

Timely and accurate data is imperative to a well-run long-term care facility. At Sage Health Services of Indiana, Inc. we have responded to this need with an accounting department that sets new standards in speed, reliability, and affordability. We treat your long-term care portfolios, books, and budget, as if they were our own.

No other organization has our capabilities and specific expertise, and we back our service with comprehensive training and rigorous quality assurance programs. When your long-term care properties subscribe to our accounting service, their bookkeepers are completely trained and provided with a specific contact person at our Evansville office. In addition, periodic business office quality assurance audits are conducted to assure that your business practices are working to maximize your investment and minimize handling time.

We give your properties the option of going online or processing their work manually. If they prefer to maintain manual records, our data entry personnel will process their computer entries at our corporate office.

If you choose online service, access to our Virtual Private Network will be made available. You will then have direct access to our computer center where we maintain an IBM midrange system, complete with specific long-term care accounting software. Whichever option you choose, you will benefit from our exceptional accounting services. Either way, it is not necessary to invest in expensive hardware and complicated software. We meet your needs – simply and directly.

We know that every facility has different and unique needs, but non-operator organizations are not attuned to the specific demands of our industry. Our experience in long-term care allows us to help you accurately assess your requirements and design a cost-effective service plan. Use only what you need – payroll processing, computerized billing, payable processing, or our complete services that can even include receivable collections!

Our services are under the continual supervision of a Certified Public Accountant with 28 years of nursing home experience. If you choose our full-service package, your business practices will be monitored for maximization of cost reimbursement in your state, and your payroll tax documents and cost reports will be quickly and cost-effectively prepared. If you so desire, your financial reports will be reviewed by qualified operators and sent to you with variance narratives designed to help improve your operation.

Full Accounting Services

Sage Health Services of Indiana, Inc. offers a variety of data and accounting services designed, implemented, and proven in the long-term care industry. The depth of our experience, as well as our staff’s specialized knowledge of long-term care financial services and systems, lay the groundwork for your success.

Accounting needs vary by facility, and non-operator service bureaus do not understand this fact. At Sage, we can help you decide if a particular property only needs payroll processing, computerized accounts receivable/accounts payable processing, or our complete services. These services can include accounts receivable collections, cost reporting services and consulting services. We are flexible and very reasonably priced.

Full data processing services are available, or a custom service agreement can be developed to meet the unique needs of your properties. Whatever your particular needs may be, Sage has a system that will get the job done.

Sage’s accounting clients enjoy accurate, timely operating information. Our accounting staff is long-term care proficient and conservative. Their expertise avoids the hills and valleys evident in the operating reports seen in less experienced operations.

Budget Development

Sage is proficient in forecasting and in developing operating plans to achieve such forecasts. We have a quick and easy computerized budgeting package that is specifically applicable to nursing homes.

Reimbursement Management

Sage can complete all Medicare and Medicaid cost reports in a manner consistent with achieving the highest reimbursement possible. Our reimbursement staff can also advise operators throughout their fiscal year on the appropriate practices leading to maximum reimbursement.

Delinquent Accounts Receivable Collection

The collection of a nursing facility’s delinquent accounts is one of the most time-consuming aspects of the accounts receivable function. Unfortunately, most facility Business Office staff don’t have the time, or the expertise and necessary resources to efficiently and effectively recover delinquent receivables. But in today’s business environment, it’s imperative that an organization not leave this potential income uncollected! Recovery is critical to any facility’s fiscal success!

Sage’s experienced accounting staff can assist you with this process. We will tailor a collection service package to meet your nursing facility’s specific needs. To learn more about our Accounts Receivable Collection services for long-term care nursing facilities, call Sage Health Services of Indiana, Inc. at 812-422-7774.
