Getting the claims accepted, on the first submission!
Insurance verification is one of the important steps in medical billing process, which could led to hastening of medical billing process. Millions of claims were denied because eligibility of the patient had expired or the patient or service was not covered by the plan in question. Also a lack of or incomplete eligibility verification can hamper your claims payout.
Why opt for insurance eligibility verification
It’s always important that we put a solid insurance verification process in place; this can reduce most of denials in your practice, making medical billing practices more efficient and raising your overall bottom line.
In order to avoid claim rejection, the verification process must be done before the patient is admitted into a hospital. Otherwise, it might lead to denials. Many a time’s patients would be ineligible for benefits when they provide wrong or outdated information, or when their policies have been terminated or modified. A simple error can result in claim rejection or denial, so you have to be sure it is being done correctly.
