When faced with the opportunity to start billing, I was hesitant thinking about the tradition of providing our services for free. But looking at the state of the economy and not billing victims directly, we decided to look into it further. PA Fire Recovery System was our first choice. Shawn and his staff are great, easy to work with and submitting information for billing is easily done online.
In the last year we have collected over 75% of our submitted claims it has helped us cover operational costs tremendously.
The income of billing for services rendered supplements the shortfall of fundraisers that may be affected by the hard economic times for all.
With the rising cost of supplies and equipment, we use our monies collected to recoup our cost of supplies and further our training.
Talking to other companies about their billing arrangements, I thank the heavens above for PAFRS and their excellent success of collecting our claims.
