Billing claims is difficult work. As the insurance industry continues to grow in complexity, it’s no wonder more providers are turning to clearinghouse services than ever before. But with so many choices available for processing claims, how can you make sure your clearinghouse partner is doing everything it can to improve the health of your billing process? This guide will assist you with evaluating your current service and highlight some of the key logistics of switching to a new clearinghouse.
The financial health of your skilled nursing facility (SNF) depends on claims that are sent on time and accurately. If you’re in the SNF business, you understand the complex process of submitting claims and getting properly paid. The success of reimbursement depends on countless tasks going off without a hitch and in the right order. And if even one task goes wrong, it leads to big problems.
Why is automation important in a claims clearinghouse? Automation adds intelligence and agility to your claims submission process and revenue cycle. This equals less stress for your team, cleaner claims and improved reimbursement.
Providers should use Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) as more than a simple pipeline to submit claims. Many organizations don’t tap into existing sophisticated EDI functionality that streamlines processes, finds missing revenue, improves cash flow and so much more. An advanced clearinghouse with automated features takes full advantage of EDI functionality.
