The combined business will provide a full suite of complex reimbursement solutions to over 1,500 healthcare organizations in the U.S. and helps recover over $150 million of underpaid or unidentified revenue for its clients annually. The combined company’s services will include transfer DRG, revenue recovery, DRG validation, zero balance underpayment recovery, complex revenue cycle, consulting, and interim management, among other solutions, offering a full revenue integrity “safety net” for all types of healthcare provider organizations.
The leadership teams of both IMA and Revint will continue to manage and grow the combined business.

New Mountain emphasizes business building and growth and plans to provide the combined company with significant financial and strategic resources to support future growth initiatives. Revint was previously a portfolio company of Eir Partners, who, along with Management, will continue to hold significant stakes in the combined company.
