Accelerated Claims, Inc.

Accelerated Claims, Inc. (ACI) is a Motor Vehicle Accident and Workers’ Compensation Account Management Company that provides services to overcome the many challenges presented by a complicated accident claim reimbursement system. ACI has developed the AccelClaims Workflow Process™ which is unique in the fact that it staffs the hospital’s Emergency Department with a goal of meeting with as many of these particular patients as possible. We know that by meeting with the patient in person, we are 5 times more likely to receive accurate and timely information.

Accelerated Claims manages the medical claims of motor vehicle and workplace accident victims that present in a hospital’s Emergency Department (ED). These claims represent the worst performing revenue stream for the hospital. Hospitals that implement our service enjoy significant increased cash flow and improved patient satisfaction.

Quite simply, ACI offers a better process. Our model is unique in that we staff the Hospital ED. This enables us to consistently provide superior service to our partner hospitals and to their patients.
