Hospitals, physician's practices and billing companies all face the challenge of long receivable cycles due to the tedious process involved in receiving payments from insurance companies. Disputes and claims rejections further aggravate the recovery process. Flatworld Solutions enables you to speed up the recovery of your receivables and improve the efficiency of your overall accounts receivable process.
This allows you to focus on providing Quality Patient Care without having to worry about cash flow to run your practice. Follow-up and documentation of claims prior to the 60- or 90-day time limit is crucial to improving the collection record and reducing overdue receivables.
Accounts Receivable Collection Process
Flatworld Solutions can handle the entire revenue cycle management (or any part thereof) for hospitals, physician groups, or billing companies.
The process comprises of the following steps:
1. Access and Review Receivables
Flatworld receives the accounts receivable data through the client's EMR or billing system, or via upload to our secure servers through FTP. Our Accounts Receivable team then accesses, reviews and analyzes this data.
2. Aging Report Generation
The accounts receivables are sorted into age-wise buckets, such of Current, 30, 60 and 90 days. The current receivables are those that fall within the next 30 days.
3. Accounts Receivable Calling
The accounts receivable follow-up process is carried out by the dedicated AR team, which calls up 3rd-party payers such as Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurance companies. Proactive follow-ups aid in determining claim status. We also follow up with you for additional information or documentation required in case of denials and rejections.
4. Analysis and Reporting
Call outcomes are documented and analyzed to generate receivables trends such as consistently low payments by certain carriers, frequent denials and rejections by carriers, and so on. The follow-up team also generates the following reports:
Collections received and applied
Status of each claim
Accounts receivable aging report
