Run this Report to Analyze Insurance Denial Rates
The Denial Rate by Service Line report is one of the crucial reports you should be running to analyze your practice's claim performance.
This report gives you an opportunity to analyze denial rates on a line-by-line basis. Many businesses in the industry will use a number related to the denial rate on a claim level, rather than by service line level. The claim level denial rate is, at best, incomplete information. And at worst, intentionally misleading.
A low denial rate by service line compared to the industry average indicates that your cash flow is healthy, and staff members are spending less time resubmitting denials and maintaining cash flow.
In our ebook below, we'll cover red flags to look for in your denial rate report, such as extremely high or extremely low rates. We'll also help you get to the source of the denials and advise on next steps for solving issues that you discover.
Your practice's priority is making sure you understand what works and what doesn't work in your claim filing process, no matter if you're outsourcing your claims or using an in-house biller.
