The healthcare industry is constantly evolving, and the revenue cycle management (RCM) process is becoming increasingly complex. With a growing number of patients seeking medical services, it’s essential to have an efficient and effective system in place to manage accounts receivable (A/R). Healthcare A/R management services can help healthcare providers increase revenue and improve efficiency.
A/R management is a critical component of the RCM process, which involves managing all financial transactions from the moment a patient is seen until the final payment is received. The primary goal of A/R management is to ensure that all revenue is captured and payments are received in a timely manner.
Healthcare Accounts Receivable Management Services typically include:
- Claims Processing and Reimbursement: This involves submitting claims to insurance companies and ensuring that payments are received in a timely manner. The service provider will verify insurance coverage, follow up on denied or delayed claims, and appeal claims as necessary.
- Insurance Verification: Before a patient receives medical services, the service provider will verify their insurance coverage to ensure that they are eligible for the services they are seeking.
- Coding: The service provider will assign appropriate codes to each medical service and diagnosis, which is used to determine the amount of payment that will be received from insurance companies.
- Payment Posting: Once payment is received, the service provider will post it to the patient’s account and reconcile payments with insurance companies.
- Denials Management: The service provider will review denied claims and take necessary actions to appeal the denial and recover lost revenue. Want to know more about our Revenue Cycle and Medical Billing Services? Please Click Here.
