Rethink Lost Revenue, Realize a Better Patient Experience
March 8, 2023
One of the largest contributors to hospitals’ bad debt write-off is denied or rejected claims. In fact, each year rejected or denied claims result in an average of $5 million lost per health system and a whopping 60 percent of discharged, nonpaid patients become bad debt.1
The problem lies in fueling that endless cycle of work and rework. Existing processes to correct rejected and denied claims are largely focused on recovery. The solution? It’s time to flip that assumption and focus on prevention.
Prevention of rejected and denied claims starts with a proactive process, so rejected and denied claims do not happen in the first place. Executed effectively, a proactive, best-practice approach can prevent rejected and denied claims by as much as 80 percent.2
