Get Paid Faster with Accurate Check-in

The easiest rejections by payers are from improper demographics & insurance information.  "Your front line controls your bottom line", is often quoted by our CEO here at Positive Results.  Insurance eligibility modules should be utilized to their fullest potential.  Ensuring you capture all of your patients' insurance information will move claims along faster.  Confirm whether on not the patient has any additional coverage.  

In addition, any practice utilizing credit cards on file should ensure authorization forms are signed at check-in.

What you need to know:
Payers will be getting strict about using more specific diagnosis codes.  Some codes that include a "site unspecific" description may be deemed inefficient.  Claims will be actively monitored by the PR team to ensure codes are being corrected & paid.   It's more important than ever for medical records to be thorough & complete in order to capture all details for billing purposes.
