The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.
FHAS is a certified Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) with over 20 years of experience in providing business processing solutions to Federal and state government agencies and commercial entities.
Our founder’s military background is an integral part of our story. We are driven by our desire to serve our country, our leaders, and our fellow citizens with integrity and excellence. We originally put these values into practice by helping government agencies and constituents navigate government benefit programs and health insurance plans with justice and legal compliance. When the opportunity arose to offer these services in an innovative manner, FHAS was born.
We were awarded our first Federal contract in 1996, providing Medicare Fair Hearing Services to Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Administrative contractors located throughout the United States. Since that time, FHAS has grown to become one of the largest independent providers of adjudication services and medical claims’ review services in the nation. We have adjudicated over 2 million legal and medical reviews, 200,000 of those in the last year alone. We have branched out to serve additional government agencies across the healthcare sector and beyond. Our team has grown to include over 100 medical and legal professionals with qualifications and experience that place them at the top of their field.
Over the last 10 years, we saw the opportunity to expand our business processing solutions into serving the private sector. Our clients now include healthcare providers and facilities, commercial health plans, law firms, and corporate entities in addition to our existing government partners.
FHAS attorneys and staff possess extensive experience in legal research and litigation preparation, which includes, but is not limited to, all pre-trial filings/discovery requests, evidence reviews, factual and legal analysis, and providing succinct legal briefs and recommendations on any issue.

FHAS retains a robust panel of physicians encompassing all specialties and subspecialties as recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Our panel also includes Dentists, Orthodontists, Pharmacists, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Occupational and Physical Therapists, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, and non-practitioners professionals.
Nurse Review Panel
FHAS maintains a comprehensive review team of licensed Registered Nurses who are experienced in rendering clinical decisions across all health care settings, evaluating factors such as appropriateness of care provided, quality of care provided, benefit pre-certification reviews, utilization review for appropriateness of determining eligibility for reimbursement, level of care and length of stay, provider education and outreach, coding, RUG, and DRG assignment/reimbursement. All FHAS Nurse Reviewers possess CPC (Certified Professional Coder) certification through the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC).
FHAS was founded for, and lives in, the space between problem and solution. At our core, we are a company of problem solvers, decision makers, and headache relievers. Our staff has the education, training, and expertise uncommon to other organizations. And, while our ability may be uncommon, we believe it is our commitment to our clients that truly makes us unique.
