Denial Management Services
Expert assistance in handling Denial Management
It is an undeniable fact that claim denials continue to be a thorn in the flesh for many healthcare providers. It has been rightly said “If you can't measure it, you can't manage it”. This holds true for claims denials too. Without a strong denial management system in place dealing with claims denials can be frustrating and time consuming. Scribe4Me’s Denial Management system is designed to perform a root cause analysis and take necessary action to resolve it. But that’s not all. It also includes reducing the risk of future denials, ensuring that you get paid faster and enjoy a steady cash flow.
Scribe4Me has established a solid denial management system and this is how it works:
As a first step we undertake to identify the root cause and determine the reason for the denial. When the insurance provider denies a claim they indicate the reason referred to as Claim Adjustment Reason Codes (CARC). Unfortunately, interpreting these codes takes time and requires expertise, since some insurance providers continue to use the overly complex, legacy codes. But our dedicated denial management professionals can easily handle these codes and identify why a claim was denied and who is responsible for its reimbursement.
Once the reason has been identified we take the steps necessary to resolve it. For this purpose we route the claims directly to the concerned department for them to quickly and efficiently act on each item. Our team follows a streamlined approach to sort and analyze denials by amount, time, reason, among other factors. This helps us to identify the categories that have the greatest denials and restructure processes and implement quality control measures to stop denials at its tracks. Once the reasons for denials have been categorized we assign it to the respective team to take corrective action.
Most of the claims denied are recoverable. All it takes is to rework the claim, ensure it is correct, and resubmit it. So, once the reasons for denials have been identified and categorized, we resubmit the claim. After making the necessary corrections and addressing the issues that led to the denial in the first place, claims are resubmitted for payment without any further delay. As the odds of reversing a denial are good, this is a crucial step to increasing revenue rather than losing money that may be rightly owed to your practice.
We believe that denial management is an on-going process that needs to be continually monitored to keep track of everything and ensure that claims get successfully paid this time around. For this purpose we keep track of denials by type of denial, date received, date appealed, and resolution. Then we audit the denial management team’s work by selecting a sample of their appeals and finally make sure that they are equipped with the tools and technology to get their job done.
With all the relevant data regarding denials in hand we setup a prevention campaign. We look for opportunities, to revise existing processes, modify existing workflows or retrain our staff. Together with it, we also

Insurance Eligibility Verification
The first and most important step is to determine the patient's eligibility and insurance coverage. People often tend to forget to renew their health insurance policy annually. And insurance companies are in no way responsible for payments covered under the plan during the period of lapse. As a result the patient has to pay for the services out of his own pocket. What if the patient is reluctant to pay the bills?
