Good revenue cycle management can be achieved in a lot of ways, but they all begin with hospitals properly reviewing their healthcare data. It’s important for them to identify denied claims from their database early on because these can significantly affect their revenue cycle. In fact, denials can cause a hospital to miss about 90 percent of its revenue opportunities because they lead to plenty of missed collections and a long time for accounts receivables to just sit there, waiting to be paid.
Working with healthcare eligibility specialists like those from DECO Recovery Management can help NC hospitals optimize revenue by making absolutely sure that their patients are eligible for benefits in the first place, and in cases that they’re not, find the workaround for patients’ eligibility. Eligibility experts add value to what revenue cycle management companies do by mainly ensuring the recovery of revenue from accounts receivables.
