Report Overview

The U.S. EMS billing services market size was estimated at USD 1.9 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.85% from 2023 to 2030. The market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period, due to the cost-saving benefits of outsourcing billing operations. Emergency medical services (EMS) agencies are turning to specialized billing companies to focus on patient care and reduce overhead costs. Outsourcing allows agencies to utilize expert claims management and reimbursement knowledge, ensuring accurate processing.

U.S. EMS Billing Services Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The rising number of Emergency Department (ED) visits and the emergence of independent freestanding ED facilities are expected to drive the EMS billing services market in the U.S. According to the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey 2020, there were 131.3 million ED visits in the U.S. Of these visits, 38.0 million were injury-related, indicating a substantial demand for emergency medical services.

Furthermore, technological advancements for improved billing services are expected to significantly impact the overall market over the forecast period. As billing procedures become increasingly complex, there is a growing demand for software solutions that can enhance the process and increase client revenue. Billing service providers are either developing their in-house software applications or purchasing them from technology firms to meet this demand.

One such technological advancement is the recent approval received by AIM EMS Software and Services in March 2023. This allows them to aid ambulance services operating in states where implementing NEMSIS v3.5 compliant software for patient care reporting is mandatory. By staying up to date with the latest regulations and standards, billing service providers can ensure smooth operations and compliance with industry requirements.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on the market, especially on the utilization of emergency department (ED) services. As a result of the pandemic, there has been a significant decrease in ED visits, leading to a negative effect on market growth. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of ED visits in the United States was estimated to be around 151 million in 2019.  However, this figure experienced a decline of 13.2% in 2020.

Based on component, the U.S. EMS billing services market is segmented into outsourced and in-house. The outsourced segment held the majority of the market share of 56.3% in 2022. The segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Increasing administrative costs are leading to high demand for outsourced EMS billing services.

In addition, growing demand for third-party billing services to enhance revenue, improve claim filing efficiency and minimize claim denial rates is anticipated to fuel market growth. The availability of certified medical coders and skilled billing staff helps avoid unnecessary delays, thus helping patients save costs and avail quality service.
