Created with a different vision. Operating with a unique passion.

In the beginning, founder Ned Koenig was led by a simple vision: patients deserve a better billing experience.

Today, that vision is stronger than ever. Unlike agencies who focus on intimidating patients into payments, we have pioneered a truly patient-first approach—coupling uncommonly trained patient advocates with custom technology and data-driven processes designed to help patients pay their balances. We maintain a 100% focus on healthcare—servicing providers, hospitals, physician groups, and other medical specialties.

It’s what’s taken us from a basement office to an industry pioneer. KeyBridge has grown into the industry-recognized leader in patient billing and recovery services.

We are Problem Solvers, Innovators, and Care Deliverers.

From the leadership team to our patient care representatives, we’re on a mission to change the experience and expectations of the patient billing cycle.
