Revenue Recovery Small Claims

Denied claims due to coding errors and medical necessity cost time and money to correct. Scarce medical record coders are too valuable to investigate small dollar denials, fix edits, and cleanup codes. For resource-strapped hospitals , the only solution is often to write-off small dollar coding denials and failed ancillary claims.

However, in an era of shrinking margins providers must make every dollar count. Any effort to recoup money earned is time well-spent. Even the tiniest dollar amounts ad up to huge cash flow improvements. A closer look at your denied claims could save you millions.
