Revenue Cycle Management is constant, a year-round effort, but periodically worth occasional scrutiny and cleaning up. Likewise, if you bill Medicare for services and need to file secondary claims, then taking a look again at automation through a clearinghouse may result in cleaning up those outstanding AR balances. This month’s blogs offer useful insights to help AR managers refresh revenue cycle best practices and remove the clutter of uncollected revenue.
Spring clean your revenue cycle
This is the time of year to open the windows, air out the house, deep clean long neglected spaces, and tidy up. For AR managers, it’s also a good time to “spring clean” the revenue cycle in a few key ways.
- Update and refresh your payers’ contracts “wiki”.
- Check the aging.
- Revisit your pre-admission screening procedures.
- Make sure the census is correct.
- Stay on top of your Days Sales Outstanding (DSO).
- Conduct a thorough claims triple check.
- Engage the right clearinghouse.
Learn how these steps can help you freshen up your revenue cycle management practices.
Secondary payer claims – finding ROI (Reducing Outstanding Income)
The ROI of automating secondary claims through a claims clearinghouse is potentially huge. Traditionally billers completed paper forms and mailed them to the payer. Sounds simple, but it wasn’t and, some providers are still submitting claims in this way. Phone calls and error-generated resubmittals contribute to a complex, cumbersome, costly, and prolonged payment process. With electronic claims automation, providers can securely submit and track claims to multiple payers all in one portal. In this blog, we highlight some of the advantages a claims clearinghouse can offer and the potential ROI when doing so.
