ebix, Inc., a multi-regional Revenue Cycle Management

firm located in Milwaukee, finalized their acquisition of clients from Mequon’s Badger Billing Services,

Inc. Under the terms of the agreement, ebix has obtained Badger Billing, Inc. clients, positioning the 40

year old ebix as the leading Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) firm in Wisconsin.

“Our longevity and sustained success is attributed to our knowledgeable staff, high standards of quality,

customer service, client relationships and our corporate culture,” states ebix President, Brian J. Nelson.

Nelson and Badger Billing, Inc. CEO, Robert Chang, have had a mutually respectful relationship for over

20 years making Nelson’s ebix the obvious partner for the acquisition. “We have been friendly

competitors with ebix for many years and have a high level of confidence in their work product and their

business integrity,” said Chang.

To accommodate the new clients and keep business running smoothly, new employee positions at ebix

were recruited and strategically added. “We’re expanding our staff to accommodate the newly acquired

clients, while making sure our current clients’ needs are met” adds Nelson. “We’ll be operating with

over 75 staff members by the end of October.”

Both ebix and Badger Billing have been long standing local companies. “ebix is rooted in the community

and has the knowledge for the local industry,” states Nelson. The additional clients deepen ebix’s service

offerings and embed the RCM company further into the market.
