They include:

  1. Monitor Payments. Be sure the reimbursement matches the expected rate.
  2. Perform Financial Clearance. Confirm insurance coverage, benefits eligibility and financial responsibility.
  3. Collect from Patients. Ask politely but firmly for copays and owed balances.
  4. Manage Denials. Work denials within 72 hours of notification.
  5. Establish Employee Expectations. Experienced employees can take action on 50-70 accounts daily.
  6. Avoid the Snowball Effect. Delaying work (or not working quickly enough) leads to denials turning into write-offs, causing your profitability to suffer.
  7. Report on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Develop a dashboard and benchmark with industry norms.
