CHESTERFIELD, MO, JANUARY 10, 2022 – National Medical Billing Services (“National Medical”), an industry leading healthcare revenue cycle management company serving the ambulatory surgery center (“ASC”) market, has acquired mdStrategies (the “Company”), a full-service medical coding company focused on ASCs. The combination will further bolster the depth and breadth of National Medical’s ASC coding expertise while also enabling it to offer coding-related point solutions to a broader segment of the ASC market. The acquisition marks National Medical’s first transaction since its January 2021 partnership with Aquiline Capital Partners, a private investment firm based in New York and London with $7 billion in assets under management.

Founded in 2003, mdStrategies provides coding, auditing, transcription, and education and training services to ambulatory surgery centers nationwide. The Company’s client base includes some of the most prominent ASC organizations and spans over 40 states, making mdStrategies one of the largest ASC-focused medical coding companies. The Company employs an experienced team of certified coders with extensive multi-specialty ASC experience, including orthopedics, spine, urology, pain management, OB/GYN, gastrointestinal, ophthalmology, general surgery, and numerous other surgical specialties. Through its web-based software and process-oriented employees, mdStrategies ensures accurate, timely deliverables while meeting or exceeding all regulatory and compliance standards.
