As the home health and hospice industries continue to usher in new complexities and regulations, you should take a renewed look at the way your agency approaches revenue cycle management (RCM). It’s critical to submit accurate claims with the proper diagnosis codes in the correct sequence. Inaccurate coding can slow reimbursement, drain administrative resources, and result in lost revenue.

And without specialized knowledge, expertise, and a solid foundation to support the coding process, you could be increasing your agency’s exposure to risk. However, our certified coders can help your agency achieve success, no matter what EMR you use.

When you work with us, you get more than just coding services… you get a team of experts dedicated to your success and a customized plan built to your agency’s unique needs. Our well-tested, proven processes are geared to promote optimal cash flow – allowing you to invest back into the business so your agency and your team can succeed and thrive. Our customers have the confidence that while they focus on providing quality patient care, our experts are laser-focused on the accuracy and speed of their coding.

Our certified experts have the knowledge and experience necessary to help you overcome documentation challenges and set your agency on a course for success.

A solid clinical documentation review process is essential to making sure that you get paid fully for the services you provide. If you don’t have a solid process in place and are worried about the additional manpower that may be required for it, let us help you. Our expert team will help you reduce your agency’s risk of errors, maximize reimbursement and help to provide precise, patient-specific and error-free documentation.

AR recovery

Are you dealing with a lot of unpaid claims or aged accounts? Our team of billing recovery experts is experienced in addressing the lost revenue that could be impeding your cash flow and finding the root cause so the issues don’t reoccur. 

Our team will manage your unpaid claims and aged accounts so that you are properly compensated for the services provided by your agency. An often labor intensive and lengthy process, most agencies don’t have the time and dedicated, trained staff to take on recovery. Outsourcing to our team allows your agency to focus on day-to-day operations and quality clinical care, while we handle the problem payors. 

We will review and resubmit all unpaid claims, notify your agency of any clinical documentation and/or coding errors on the rejected claims and fix them for resubmission. We also provide comprehensive and transparent tracking of our progress and appeals status so you can see the real-time effect of our work on your bottom line.

Eligibility & authorization

There’s a lot at stake for home health and hospice agencies when it comes to billing, coding and documentation review. Errors and omissions can lead to delayed, denied or rejected claims that can decrease reimbursement. In addition, ongoing regulatory changes make it difficult for overstretched clinicians to keep current with new guidance — increasing the risk of errors and incomplete documentation.

And many agencies are struggling to maintain their cash flow. Denials only compound those issues. As your payor mix changes and staffing shortages continue to mount, it’s easy to see how rejected claims can begin to stack up, slowing down your cash flow and impacting your bottom line. Detecting and resolving issues are critical to the success of an agency.

Most billing errors occur during the intake process, including entering incorrect patient or payor information, adding invalid diagnosis codes or authorization, and ordering services not covered by the payor. Let us help you tackle your billing challenges – saving you valuable time, helping to ensure accuracy from the beginning and enhancing your bottom line.
