Each year, Business NH Magazine features 10 private companies that are fast-growing but do not have the revenue to make the list of NH’s Top 100 Private Companies. To make the list, companies had to demonstrate high sales-growth rates between 2015 and 2017 and generate more than $1 million in revenue annually. Below is a profile of one of these companies:

Erin Cammarata started CBS Medical Billing & Consulting with a single client in 2010 and has since grown it to 38 clients across the U.S., including a large Texas hospital. Her company has seen a 56 percent average annual revenue increase since 2015.
The company’s Exeter and Portsmouth offices have 37 full-time and four part-time employees. Their niche is not to just help a healthcare provider improve its medical billing, but to be a one-stop consulting shop to meet all of their back office needs.
“We’re not just doing the medical billing piece. We treat each client separately to meet their needs, such as compliance or front desk administration work,” Cammarata says. As a partner, Cammarata says CBS helps clients navigate any issues that may come up. “Our results in the first 45 days is they see an instant increase in cash flow and they get the education piece to create an even stronger cash flow process,” she says.
For Cammarata, this is not just a business, but a passion. She enjoys doing the research to keep up with the policies and regulations that govern medical billing issues in the health care industry, which are always changing. “It is really important to have a passion for it and carve out the time for it,” she says.
She also takes pride in how much she invests in her employees to make them the best researchers and problem solvers possible. As a trained life coach, Cammarata strives to foster a corporate culture where her employees want to come to work on Monday morning. “I want them to be better than me, unstoppable,” she says.
Cammarata is also proud that her firm recently became a certified women-owned business in NH, which she says took a great deal of hard work.
As for 2019, Cammarata says she wants to pursue federal medical billing work via government contracts to grow her business.
