AR Services helps organizations in recovering overdue payments from insurance payers.
It Is Necessary to Have An A/R Team for Your Practice.
The accounts receivable follow-up team in a practice is responsible for correcting denied claims and rebilling them to insurance payers. The days when Medical billing A/R and revenue cycle management could be handled by an in house team is a thing of the past. Today, it demands dedicated billing professionals with a specialized skill set to oversee the A/R process.
3 Stages of The Medical Billing A/R Process
We perform the A/R follow-up in three steps:
Analysis and Prioritizing
OTB will start prioritizing, the claims that are uncollectible or unpaid. We then review the contracted rate of the payer to your medical office.
What Do A/R Specialists Do?
The A/R analytics team is responsible for studying and analyzing denied claims as well as partial payments. Also, if any claim is found to have a coding error, the A/R team corrects it and resubmits the claim.
The A/R follow up team, on the other hand, continuously communicate with patients, healthcare service providers, and the insurance firms and takes necessary actions based on their feedback or responses. The skills and quality of services delivered by the A/R team eventually help in determining the financial health of a healthcare practice.
