Medical billing services and software

Millin Associates offers medical billing, consulting, and software to empower organizations to better receive payments and minimize denied claims. Its services and software are designed to provide an affordable and more cost-effective solution than in-house billing. Millin helps facilities retrieve lost revenue from previous denials.

Millin’s software supplies detailed financial, cost, and fiscal reports and analyzes the source of denials, allowing decision makers to evaluate in-house processes, and improve inefficiencies. Millin serves mental health facilities, primary care facilities, federally qualified health centers, substance abuse facilities, MR/DD facilities, and foster care agencies.
