Insurance Follow up and Appeals
One of the most difficult tasks in the medical office for the billing department is dealing with insurance denials. Unfortunately many claims are denied for a variety of reasons and if not handled properly no payment will ever be made on that service. Most offices are extremely busy and it can be difficult to find the time to take care of these problems. If your office does not have the time and resources to take care of these denials, your receivables will greatly suffer.
Denials can range from no coverage to treatment notes needed. Each individual denial needs to be looked into to determine how you will get paid for that date of service. Many times it will take only a phone call to fix the problem, but that phone call can take as long as 45 minutes to accomplish the preferred outcome. Some denials will entail the resubmission of the claim. An incorrect diagnosis code is an example of this. Some denials will result in billing the patient for the service but it may still take a 30 minute phone call to be sure that you are doing the right thing.
The secret to handling denials effectively is to act as soon as possible on the denial. Many denials have a time frame that must be adhered to. Then, you need a good system in place for dealing with the denial. When a claim is denied find what works best for that problem and use the same method each time you get that denial. Find the most effective solution to each denial and use that solution as soon as you receive the denial.
We will follow up via telephone (or letter if necessary) on all claims that have gone unpaid beyond 30 days. If an unpaid or underpaid claim requires an appeal we will process all of the required paperwork and handle all necessary follow up.
