Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) involves all administrative and clinical functions that contribute to the Capture, Management, and Collection of patient service revenue.
Capture: Prior to every new patient visit your office staff must Verify Benefits and when required Obtain Authorizations to avoid claim denial. Co-pays should be collected prior to each patient visit.
Management: Data Input Must be Accurate to Avoid Delayed Payment or Denied Claims. Claims should be tracked and EOBs reviewed prior to Posting Payments.
Collection: To Maximize Practice Revenue, Accounts Receivable should be continuously evaluated until paid. To avoid erroneously inflating the AR, any negotiated discounts should be written off when posting payments. Patient Statements are generated or Account Balances Collected prior to the next office visit.
We review every patient encounter prior to electronic claims submission. Explanation of Benefits are reviewed, payments posted and statements mailed. Patients call us toll free with billing questions.
Dramatically improve your collection rate. Verify insurance benefits and obtain authorizations prior to rendering services.

Accounts receivable days is the number of days from the time a charge for service is filed to the time it is collected. The measurement is a good indication of collections and cash flow.

The existence of an effective compliance program can provide evidence that any mistakes are inadvertent. Suggested components for a voluntary compliance program:
• Conduct internal monitoring and auditing
• Implement compliance and practice standards
• Designate a compliance officer or contact
• Conduct appropriate training and education
• Respond appropriately to detected offenses and develop corrective action
• Develop open lines of communication
• Enforce disciplinary standards through well-publicized guidelines
