BESLERBESLER completes acquisition of Essential Consulting LLC, a leader in hospital reimbursement services and supporting technology.

Combination expands BESLER’s reimbursement services organization and technology solutions.

March 21, 2019 – BESLER, a market leader in revenue recovery and hospital reimbursement solutions, today announced the acquisition of Essential Consulting LLC.

This new combination brings together two uniquely qualified hospital reimbursement service organizations and adds to BESLER’s software portfolio and technology development capabilities.

“By combining two companies with broad reimbursement experience and complementary, but not overlapping technology-enabled services, hospitals will now have access to an expanded platform of reimbursement software tools and a larger, integrated team of service professionals to ensure that their reimbursement is protected,” said Jonathan Besler, CEO and President of BESLER.

Essential Consulting has long been known for its cost report preparation, Medicaid eligibility and IME/GME software solutions and companion services. Co-founder Jeff Wolf will lead BESLER’s reimbursement services organization and other members of the Essential Consulting team will join BESLER as part of that team. Co-founder Rick Sutton will continue to support and develop new and existing software products for the combined product set.

BESLER plans to leverage the combined reimbursement and software development expertise to deploy a fully integrated reimbursement technology platform that will help hospitals maintain compliance, reduce manual processes, and achieve accurate reimbursement.
