Impact of Accounts Receivables on Medical Billing Collections -Avontix

Accounts receivables management is a significant aspect of the revenue cycle management process for any healthcare provider. It is estimated that over 200 million medical claims are denied in the US for various reasons every year. One of the main setbacks in the revenue cycle management process is that most of the denied claims are not followed up properly which leads to losses for the facility. To minimize the claims denials and revenue loss, it is necessary that this process is handed over to a professional RCM services provider, who is solely into the business of dealing with the generation of accurate bills, submission of insurance claims and doing the follow up of denied claims.
