A/R Denial Management
Denial management Process tracks every claim that has denied and can report this by payer, by CPT, by physician and by diagnosis. This information is presented in a manner that allows fast identification of trends. With this powerful combination in hand, the Practice / Provider of medical service can then utilizes claim rules and edits that are specific enough to dramatically drive up the first pass claim acceptance and stop the flood of denied claims.
A/R Collection and Claim Follow-up

- 50% of denied claims are never re-filed.
- 50-70% of denied claims have higher chance of being recovered.
The submission and re-submission of claims will be on priority basis
- High Dollar high age - These claims would be processed on priority as the claims need to be followed up before we exceed the filing limit.
- High Dollar low age - Next focus would be on high dollar claims with low age as the chances of collection are higher.
- Low Dollar low age - These claims have higher probability of collection. However, need many more resources to follow-up.
- Low Dollar high age - These claims are given last priority as these claims have less chances of collection and need high number of resources to follow-up.
Medical Billing is the process of submitting and following up on claims to insurance companies in order to receive payment for services rendered by a healthcare provider. The level of service, once determined by qualified staff is translated into a standardized five digit procedure code drawn from the Current Procedural Terminology database. The verbal diagnosis is translated into a numerical code as well, drawn from a similar standardized ICD-9-CM database. These two codes, a CPT and an ICD-9-CM, are equally important for claims processing.
Charge Capture Coding
Charge capture and coding is same as Medical coding and medical billing. In charge capture the physician can record procedure and diagnosis codes on their mobile devices and transfer information.
Third Party Payment Compliance
This follows if a payment gateway is integrated in our system. The system has to be complying with norms according to the PCI-DSS (Payment Card industry Data Security Standards). These standards are created to help payment card industry organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise. The standard applies to all organizations that hold, process, or exchange cardholder information from any card branded with the logo of one of the card brands.
Coding rules framed by ICD-10 will help healthcare service providers, physicians, or other coding agencies to make their coding process efficient by reducing errors and inconsistencies. Thus, healthcare providers are likely to see a significant increase in their collection rates by switching to ICD-10.
ICD 10 will reduce errors in diagnosis coding, improve tracking and response to health issues. However it also requires a lot from both you and your RCM software vendor.
At Claimat we are committed to to make your transition to ICD-10 less painful. Claimat RCM is ICD-10 compliant, with all ICD codes pre-programmed into the database.
