Healthcare Factoring vs. Medical Accounts Receivables Factoring
Getting to Know Medical Receivables Financing
Waiting a long time to be paid is normal for the healthcare industry. If slow-payers are hurting your growth and you could benefit from being paid sooner, we can help with our customized medical factoring services.
When it comes to accounts receivable financing for the healthcare industry, there are two different kinds of companies that can benefit from what’s commonly referred to as healthcare factoring and/or medical factoring.
The first type is a vendor sells goods or provides services to the healthcare industry (medical transcription, nurse staffing, etc.) and the second is a provider that bills third-party payers like Medicare, Medicaid and insurance companies. However, both types of healthcare companies make ideal invoice factoring candidates because each routinely bills creditworthy slow-paying customers.
Fast and Simple Working Capital
You’ll have the financial means to hire new staff, open new locations and expand your business, however, you see fit with medical receivables financing. There are no limits to the amount of funding you can receive. Medical factoring is one of the few financing options that have the ability to grow with your business.
The first variation of medical factoring involves entrepreneurs who own a service-oriented business within the healthcare industry. Specifically, medical transcription services, medical supply companies, medical staffing agencies, temporary nurse registries, outsourced medical coding companies, medical billing services, etc. can all benefit greatly by factoring their invoices. These types of healthcare service providers do not bill third-party payers. Instead, they bill the hospitals or healthcare facilities directly.

Factoring for Healthcare Services is Simple:
- A healthcare vendor sends invoices to a medical provider (i.e. physicians’ office, medical clinic, hospital, nursing home, etc.) for services rendered or goods provided.
- The healthcare vendor then submits a copy of those invoices in addition to any supporting documentation (i.e. signed timesheets) to a medical factoring company like PRN Funding, LLC.
- At which point, PRN Funding purchases those invoices and advances 80-90% of their face value. (Funds are typically deposited directly into the vendor’s bank account within 24-48 hours).
- PRN Funding will use the remaining 10-20% (reserve) as a buffer in case some of the vendor’s bills do not get paid or if they had billing errors.
- The reserve, less the factoring fee, is then released back to the vendor upon receipt of payments from the medical providers.
Medical receivables financing can be extremely beneficial for vendors hoping to maintain a positive cash flow when their customers (medical providers) take weeks or months to pay them for their services or goods. Click here to learn more about getting started.

PRN Funding works with Factor Finders, LLC, a leading factoring broker that pairs healthcare businesses with medical factoring companies that specialize in funding medical deals. By factoring medical receivables, the medical provider is the one who benefits.
The Medical Accounts Receivables Financing Process
- A medical provider submits bills to a third-party payer (i.e. Medicaid/Medicare, HMOs, private insurances, personal injury lien settlements, or worker’s compensation insurances, etc.) for the medical services performed.
- The medical provider sends a copy of the invoices to their invoice factoring firm.
- The factor then purchases the medical provider’s invoices and advances up to 80-90% of the expected net collectible value. (Funds are typically deposited directly into the medical provider’s bank account within 24-72 hours).
- The medical factor uses the remaining 20% (reserve) as a buffer in case some of the provider’s bills do not get paid or if they were billed incorrectly.
- The reserve, less the factoring fee, is released back to the medical provider after payments are received.
