I know what you are thinking, those providers he mentioned must be expensive, but guess what..they aren’t. I want to stress that I selected these vendors as up and coming, not based on any revenue cycle nor any compensation from them. I AM NOT RECEIVING ANY COMPENSATION FROM THESE VENDORS. All pricing is in USD.
