About Us

Premier Returns is a joint solution developed for home health and hospice organizations by Simione Healthcare Consultants and HEALTHCAREfirst. We saw a need in the marketplace for comprehensive revenue cycle management, as many agencies struggle with timeliness, cash flow issues, regulatory requirements, and lost income, among the growing priorities of running a home care or hospice organization. Together, we have all of the resources and expertise to solve these issues, relieving some the pressure of revenue cycle management to help agencies concentrate on patient care.

We tackle the more complicated processes such as commercial billing, coding overflow, billing recovery and document review to optimize revenue cycle management and keep revenue flowing. We have a shared commitment to seeing home care and hospice agencies get what they have earned in a timely and affordable manner.


Founded in 1992, HEALTHCAREfirst provides leading-edge, web-based solutions that improve business and clinical functions to over 1,300 home health care and hospice agencies across the United States. Based in Ozark, Mo., and one of the fastest growing providers of its kind, HEALTHCAREfirst provides clients with software for agency management, electronic medical records, and revenue cycle management, as well as business intelligence reporting, and billing and coding services that enable caregivers to focus on patients instead of paperwork.
