How to Reduce Claims Denials

The reimbursement landscape is already a complicated one – and the highly-complex claims denials process only adds fuel to the fire. A denied claim is one that has been determined by a payor to be in appropriate. Once a coding specialist amends the errors on a rejected claim, they can resubmit it for consideration. The time-intensive process has a significant impact on the cash flow for any setting in the healthcare environment. They are also very costly to appeal. Download our eBook for some tips to avoid the headache that comes with claims denials.


ASC Coding, Auditing and Education


Are you getting the correct reimbursement for your procedures?

Even for the most experienced coder, advanced CPT surgical coding can be a challenge. Our coders are credentialed, trained and reviewed to ensure coding is accurate the first time.

Are your coders up to date on the newest guidelines and applying them correctly?

With yearly CPT coding updates, it can be hard to keep up with all of the new coding guidelines. Partner with HIA to perform a review and see if your coders need any further education.

Does your coding reflect the severity of the patients you are treating?

Coding to the correct specificity can affect your facility's reimbursement. HIA coders assign all relevant codes to accurately reflect the severity of the patient.  

Are your coders following the changes being made to the LCDs and NCDs?

The LCD/NCDs and bulletins are continuously changing and difficult to manage. Partner with HIA to perform a review and see if your coders need any further education.

Do you give feedback to your providers on documentation opportunities?

HIA Consultants can educate your providers on the importance of documenting and reporting appropriately.
