Reimagining the World of Health
Who is First Coast Service Options?

As our name suggests, we are headquartered on Florida’s beautiful first coast. For the past five decades, we’ve been doing the right things, the right way to support health care providers participating in the Federal Medicare program and the beneficiaries they serve. We are committed to conducting business with integrity and operational excellence while continuously improving our organization and business processes and ensuring fiscal responsibility in service to our customers.

First Coast Service Options serves a diverse provider community comprised of health care facilities and professionals with different interests due to geographic location, specialty or language preference. One of the most important facets of First Coast’s reputation is its strong dedication to customer service as well as its commitment to continuous quality improvement. First Coast’s customer-first initiative has resulted in consistently higher levels of customer satisfaction as well as official recognition from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

As the health care landscape changes, we are here to change with it. We are focused on innovation and opportunities to improve our health care system including improved access for those that need it and quality in the care they receive, making it more cost efficient, so it continues to thrive in the future. We can talk more about the millions of people we serve and the billions of dollars we protect, but it’s our passion that sets us apart.
