Actionable Tips to Improve Claims Management Process

Insurance CIO Outlook | Thursday, April 29, 2021

The secret to achieving the best coverage limits is accurate patient data. In the Medicare billing process, a patient's work profile and age are taken into account.

Fremont, CA: There is often a response in the healthcare revenue cycle to how payers should streamline the claims processing process. Revenue cycle professionals are constantly on the lookout for new strategies to counteract declining claims reimbursement rates as well as value-based buying. Streamlining productivity and cutting costs in the healthcare sector, on the other hand, is a difficult task.

When patients turn to hospitals for healthcare and easy claims processing, providers look for efficient medical coders to file claims. Healthcare consumerism and value-based payment are two recent developments that will continue to influence how healthcare is delivered. It is up to providers to strike the right balance between customer and industry demands.

Here are some tips to increase the claims management process

Store and Refresh Patient Data

The secret to achieving the best coverage limits is accurate patient data. In the Medicare billing process, a patient's work profile and age are taken into account. It is important to understand not just the policy numbers and deductibles that patients must pay but also to consider other considerations such as the accuracy of the billing address and policy number, as well as the validation of patient details with payer records kept by third-party insurers.

Provide Training to Agents to File Claims Without Error

Daily preparation is one method of improving the claims management process. When it comes to handling claims and onboarding new patients, insurance providers have their own set of rules. Some payers use chart notes to create primary care relationships, while others use them for non-standard treatment and follow-up care. Without exception, the team in charge of medical billing must be adequately qualified. Accessing patient data as well as easily interpreting filing essentials and procedures must be covered in the training exercise. As a result, each carrier would have the necessary details to expedite claims processing.
