what people say about Optimus Healthcare Management.

The Optimus Healthcare Management Team and Tony have been an amazing resource for me, as someone who is newly navigating the healthcare space. They offer consulting on licensing requirements as well as contract and credentialing with insurance and other 3rd party payors. Contract and credentialing can be especially daunting. Every step of the way, Tony and his team share their knowledge and process insights which helps if you are starting in this industry or seeking to put in place more effective systems. Every conversation with Tony was an education. I recommend him and his service whole-heartedly to anyone serious about opening a clinic and maintaining their compliance on point. Also he is very organized and you can see what is within the scope that you are paying for and what is outside the scope, so you never have any reason to doubt what your deliverables are at each stage of the process.

The binders, policies and procedures, and general counsel received from Optimus greatly facilitated the AHCA license inspection. The policies and documents provided comply with what AHCA requires, and the mock survey lets you know everything you must have for the actual survey inspection. Optimus is very knowledgeable and helpful with the AHCA licensing process.

Florida Keys Urgent Care

Tony and his team supported us in getting our AHCA license. Tony is extremely structured and organized and understands all of the ins and outs of what it takes to get licensed. With his support, preparation, and binder system, our initial AHCA survey was a breeze! The surveyor even commented throughout the survey how impressed she was with our organization! Thank you, Tony and Team!!
