27 Apr Improve AR Follow Up and Denial Management in Medical Billing
The AR (Accounts Receivables) management process begins after the Provider creates and sends health insurance claims to various insurance companies. Depending on the transmission type and time elapsed since submission, you need to follow-up your claims.
In medical billing and revenue management, there are 2 types of claims follow ups –
- No remark claims – A claim in which no status is known for the claim
- Last Remark Claims – Unpaid claims which remain unpaid but can be followed up
A large percentage of all claims submitted to the payers are denied. But you can resubmit those claims or appeal their denial. Unfortunately, due to reasons such as, lack of sufficient billing staff, busy practice, lack of knowledge of regulations and compliance, almost a half of denied claims are never re-submitted. An even larger percentage have a high likelihood of being recovered if duly followed up and accurately submitted in the first place.
