Dr. Gerald Glass, Founder and Chairman
Dr. Glass has always been driven by the use of technology in improving the dynamic between physicians, patients and insurance companies. Prior to entering medicine, Dr. Glass received his undergraduate degree from North American University while enlisted in the United States Army. He later completed Officer Candidate School and served as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. After being honorably discharged from the service, Dr. Glass earned a Physician Assistant degree from Western University of Health and Sciences and became the founder, President and CEO of MebSoft, a medical billing software company. MebSoft was a pioneer in retrospectively analyzing carrier reimbursement as it related to diagnosis. Its proprietary software was the first of its kind in improving reimbursement for providers by utilizing a rules-based system in linking diagnosis to reimbursement. Dr. Glass then went on to earn his Doctorate of Medicine from Windsor University School of Medicine. In 1997, Dr. Glass co-founded AHCS and has served as co-CEO since its inception. Then, in 2015, Dr. Glass became the Chairman of the Board for AHCS and ezVerify with the primary goal of using technology to eliminate surprise bills and allow patients to understand their “out of pocket” responsibility, as well as give physicians a better understanding of what insurance companies need to process claims more expeditiously and accurately. Dr. Glass’s overall goal is to lower healthcare costs through technology and electronic communication. ezVerify is now one of the industry leaders in actively mining data to accomplish these goals and is now being rolled out nationwide.
