In healthcare, time is money. Nothing is more critical to a healthcare organization’s profitability than to have an efficient and effective accounts receivable and denial management process. With our years of experience, we are able to significantly improve your business’ cash flow, reduce A/R days and decrease unwarranted write-offs effectively.
Issues with A/R will directly impact a provider’s margins, debt and organizational financial health. Therefore, A/R management is vital after claim submission and crucial for financial stability. It identifies the adjudication status of the submitted claim and helps in understanding the claim outcome. Early notification of a denial helps correct the claim at the initial stage and saves it from becoming ‘untimely’ for appeals or corrections. Our team will analyze your financials, identify errors and implement efficient processes to collect payments and clear backlogs of unresolved A/R within a quick turnaround time.

The average claim denial rate in the healthcare industry ranges from 5% to 10%. Most providers consider these denied claims as a drain on resources and negatively impact revenue. Many providers, however, do not realize just how significant that impact is. Data shows that 90% of denied claims are preventable and up to 65% of denied claims are never resubmitted, even though 63% of denied claims are recoverable. This is money left on the table. Our effective denial prevention strategy and dedicated denials team can help your organization increase payment recovery. This is done by identifying the root cause of denials, reworking the denials, writing appeals if necessary and resubmitting claims.
