My friend David Zetter and I have helped a couple of practices with payer contracting questions lately. In the process of analyzing their billing data to look for payer contracting issues, we have found significant issues with unpaid claims. When was the last time you audited your billing data to see how many unpaid claims you are missing? Are the claims unpaid because they were denied and not appealed? Are the claims unpaid because they were not submitted timely? Is there an issue with your clearinghouse? Why didn’t your receivables system flag these claims for follow up? What else might an in-depth analysis of your billing data reveal? If you haven’t audited your billing system lately, today’s BIG Ideas podcast can give you encouragement and insight to get started.
