Compliance specialists are more important than ever in today’s health care environment. Medical necessity decisions are complex. Should a hospital place patients in observation? Or admit them as inpatients? A flawed determination may result in increased compliance risk, margin exposure, misallocation of resources and denial of claims.
Schumacher Group Care Management helps clients make intelligent compliance choices concerning utilization and case management. Our expertly trained physician advisors and nurse case managers provide both real-time and retrospective medical necessity screening and compliance verification to ensure that hospitals and providers make the right medical necessity decisions for patients 100% of the time.
Getting patient classification right the first time streamlines workflow, increases compliance scores and improves the health care experience for physicians and patients alike.
Our Physical Medicine team delivers hands-on care that gets results and makes a patient’s rehabilitation experience as positive as possible. We treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal needs, including neck and back pain, post-surgical rehab, work injuries, sports injuries, strains, sprains, tendonitis, bursitis and much more. Treatments are based in manual therapy and medical exercise therapy. We even offer innovative unloading therapy – like pool therapy without the water – that is often more effective.
We offer multiple options for engagement, including consulting and staffing contracts. And we provide the highest levels of training and expertise for the best outcomes. Our certified Physical Medicine professionals are committed to getting patients back to work and play without pain.
Our Contact Center representatives are friendly, caring, knowledgeable, and responsive.
We’ve designed our billing statements to be patient friendly, and when patients call us about their bill, it is our goal is to provide clear, concise, correct and timely information. To accomplish this we recruit enthusiastic staff that commit to ongoing training and adhere to the standard of treating all patients with dignity, respect, and kindness.
To ensure a consistently high level of service, we monitor all calls for quality. Patients consistently give the level of caring shown to them by our representatives a rating of 90% or above.
In addition, our Contact Center offers evening service hours, and our easy-to-use payment website gives patients the option to get information, or pay their bills on line 24 hours a day.

Parker Templeton, CEO Franklin Foundation Hospital, Franklin, LA
We appreciate the assistance in improving patient perception of care and patient flow. We have made great improvements.
Dan McKay, CEO Northwest Medical Center, Springdale, AR
My daughter and I had a very positive experience at SSM Lake St Louis emergency room. Every person we came in contact with treated us with respect and professionalism. From the moment we walked in the door, each person involved in the care of my daughter went above and beyond what I would expect at a visit to an emergency room. I regret that I do not have each person's name to give credit to other than Dr. Sutterer. He was compassionate and skilled. The admitting woman, along with the triage nurse and our personal nurse, also gave us exceptional care. Even the gentleman who escorted my daughter to the imaging area was so kind and thoughtful.

Partnering with Schumacher Group Care Management (SGCM) has been a very positive experience for Baton Rouge General Medical Center. As our second level physician advisor service, they have not only provided us with excellent customer service, but have helped our organization to better meet our medical necessity compliance needs. They have provided our Care Management department and physicians with excellent guidance and one-on-one education and we are extremely satisfied with the results!
Monet Faulkner, RN, CCM, Dir. Care Management Baton Rouge General Medical Center
We have been very impressed with the outcomes of our program since we've begun using Schumacher Group Care Management services. We are making sure that our patient accounts are compliant from the beginning and are avoiding the rework later on and also avoiding the possibility of getting denials from reviewers at a later time. We feel good knowing that the patient account status is correct and that the patients are not being charged any unnecessary fees due to improper classification. Our facility is very pleased that we chose Schumacher Group Care Management and we definitely would make the same decision again if we were faced with the same opportunity.
Don Shaw, VP Revenue Cycle Baton Rouge General Medical Center
We are very pleased with the start-up and ongoing operations of Care Management in our facility. My staff and our ER physicians and attendings have had an overall very good experience working with your team. Patients having regular Medicare and Medicare replacement policy coverages have been our primary focus for Care Management. Appropriately determining patient status has driven positive results for both patients and the hospital. We know we made the right choice in working with Schumacher Care Management.

I just want to extend a thank you to WellnessWorks. I think we all know how difficult it can be to keep track of so many, especially when it comes to Workers' Comp claims and Wellness benefits. With the help of WellnessWorks, our experiences have been made much simpler and our visits to the Clinic and ER have run much more smoothly than we feel they would have without your efforts...we are grateful you have extended your assistance to us.

I was impressed at the rapid time and professional attention Marvair employees received. The employees also mentioned how quickly they were in and out of the clinic. They too were very appreciative of the proficient attention they received. I do hope that this program will continue!
