The Healthcare industry should be about providing patients the best care possible. However, treating the patient is only one piece of the process. Providers also need to have effective clinical and administrative practices to ensure they get the reimbursement they deserve for the services that they provide. This is why it is necessary to have good revenue cycle management processes in place. Any medical practice will need to manage their revenue cycle effectively. Not only does it help the staff, but in doing so, the staff can provide better care for patients so that everybody wins. Keep reading to see what benefits come from effective revenue cycle management.
More Claims Get Paid After Their Initial Submission
When your revenue cycle management is effective, it means that front-end tasks are given plenty of attention so that medical claims will get paid the first time they are submitted. Such tasks include verifying insurance, collecting all of the patient information, and coding.
Generally, somewhere in the range of five to ten percent of medical claims will get denied when they are first submitted, but many of these denials are the result of technical issues and human error. By placing greater emphasis on revenue cycle management, you can minimize the chances of these mistakes ever happening so that fewer claims get rejected upon their first submission.
More Revenue and Collections for Your Medical Practice
There is a large list of expenses that healthcare facilities have to address. They have to spend money providing services for their patients, and they also have to pay the staff that provide these services. Whenever medical claims get denied or patients can’t pay for their services right away, it means payments for the healthcare facility get delayed. This makes it tougher for medical practices to keep track of their expenses.
To keep this from happening, effective revenue cycle management allows you to figure out trends in why your claims may be getting denied. This helps you cut down on how many denials your practice faces so that you can receive reimbursement in a timely manner. You also won’t need to spend money getting appeals done or performing claim investigations.
You Can Focus More On Quality Care
When a medical practice places more focus on revenue cycle management, it won’t need to spend as much time addressing errors in medical claims or appealing them. Because of this, your practice can focus on providing the best care possible to your patients. Your practice may also be able to switch from a fee-for-service model to a value-based one.
