What a wonderful time of year this is! We have so much to be grateful for and to turn our heads and hearts to. However, while it may be the holiday season, it certainly is not the time to take a holiday from monitoring certain critical aspects of cash flow. One of those aspects we’d like to address here is cash collected and, specifically, year-end billing deadlines. Please be aware that each payer has windows of opportunity for submitting claims - that is, in which your organization can submit claims to payers and hope to get paid. Unfortunately, many providers find themselves in the position of not submitting claims or responding to rejections on time.
