Scott-Macon’s Healthcare Group Advises National Bill Audit Services, LLC. on its sale to Exponent Health.


Scott-Macon, an investment bank specializing in mergers and acquisitions advisory services, has announced the sale of its client, National Bill Audit Services (NBAS) to Exponent Health, a healthcare technology company specializing in complex cost management challenges. NBAS is an independent full service medical bill review and audit company specializing in the commercial payor market. The transaction, led by Nate Cortright, extends the firm’s track record in the healthcare services sector.

“The Exponent Health and NBAS partnership will expand Exponent Health’s presence and knowledge in the medical bill review space.” said Nate Cortright, a managing director and head of the Healthcare Group at Scott-Macon. “Leveraging NBAS’s 20-year expertise in the field will also allow the company to develop new and innovative cost containment strategies across the board.”

NBAS was founded as a sister company to a national PPO network and in direct response to PPO clients, and other stakeholders, whose traditional prospective and retrospective discounts did little to impact the egregious errors and overcharges they faced. For 20 years, NBAS has successfully assisted health plans, insurance companies, TPAs, MGUs and reinsurance carriers of all sizes with their respective efforts to reduce medical costs.

For over 30 years Exponent Health, formerly HRGi, has been evolving cost management and revenue optimization across healthcare – from large, national payors and Blues plans, to PBMs and TPAs.
