Common Revenue Cycle Management Issues

Incomplete or Inaccurate Patient Documentation

ASCs often face challenges with incomplete or inaccurate documentation of patient encounters, procedures, and medical necessity. This can lead to coding errors, claim denials, and delayed reimbursements.

Coding Challenges

Proper coding of surgical procedures and services is crucial for accurate billing and reimbursement. ASCs may encounter coding challenges such as incorrect code selection, lack of specificity in documentation, and changes in coding guidelines, which can result in claim denials or underpayments.

Insurance Verification and Authorization

Verifying patient insurance coverage and obtaining pre-authorization for procedures are essential steps in the revenue cycle process. Delays or errors in insurance verification and authorization can lead to claim denials, delayed payments, and patient dissatisfaction.

Claim Denials and Rejections

ASCs frequently deal with claim denials and rejections from payers due to various reasons, including coding errors, lack of medical necessity, and non-covered services. Resolving denied and rejected claims in a timely manner is critical to avoid revenue loss and maintain cash flow.

Underpayments and Incorrect Reimbursements

ASCs may receive underpayments or incorrect reimbursements from payers, often due to contract discrepancies, fee schedule changes, or billing errors. Identifying and appealing underpayments and discrepancies is essential to ensure proper reimbursement and maximize revenue.

Patient Financial Responsibility

Collecting patient payments for deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance can be challenging for ASCs, particularly with the rise of high-deductible health plans. Issues such as patient confusion over billing statements, lack of payment transparency, and difficulties in implementing effective collection strategies can impact revenue collection.
