Today reprocessing claims drive up labor costs as billing staff is forced to devote more time to unpaid claims. Researches have shown that annually $15.5 billion is solely lost due to improper claims management. Thus today most of the healthcare practices opt for a more convenient solution of outsourcing their billing operation; reducing the chances of billing and claims errors.
The Common reason for urgent care claims denials are:
Improper front desk management – if a patient’s information is not correctly entered or completely, it results in billing and coding errors and denial and rejection of claims, which is why having an efficient front-end management is extremely essential. In fact, improper front-end management delays the whole proves of reimbursements.
Coding errors – due to a lack of trained and experienced billers and coders, urgent care practices have to face numerous coding errors. as in the medical billing business, codes need to be regularly updated in order to experience a seamless billing operation.
Inexperience billers and coders – One of the main concerns for all urgent care is claims denial. inexperienced billers and coders add days to the revenue cycle interrupting cash-flow but can also rob you of potential revenue.
