Medical Electronic Billing (MEB) is a division of SouthWest Direct, a privately owned printing and mailing company based in Fort Myers, Florida. Founded in 1988 by Anthony Correnti Sr., SouthWest Direct began as a local lettershop serving the Southwest Florida area. Over the years SouthWest Direct developed into one of the premier direct mail production facilities in the state, offering database management, 4-color process printing, Xerox™ and OCE™ laser printing, mailing services and fulfillment.

In 1991 the company began mailing billing statements for a community hospital in Naples, Florida. Each day boxes full of preprinted continuous forms were picked up, folded, inserted and mailed. As technology advanced, new equipment allowed us to propose a better way. Working with the hospital we designed a color custom statement onto which patient data was laser printed. The result was a statement that was patient friendly and easy to read. Soon we began processing billing for clinics, labs, and collection agencies. That billing statement process evolved into MEB Statement Services. We have invested ten years and over three million dollars in developing a patient billing process that is the most technologically advanced in the world. We are now able to offer MEB Statement Services to healthcare providers nationwide.
