I have never been disappointed with American Health's level of customer service. I can't think of a single occasion where we've asked for something and not received it. We are also very appreciative of American Health's Utilization Management reports. They're very informative, concise, comprehensive and user friendly to both the administrators and the clinicians on staff.
