I have seen over the years that payer enrollment is the hot potato of most organizations. No one wants to do it.
Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) April 19, 2017
For years, healthcare organizations, from private practices to rural hospital districts to large hospital systems, have treated provider payer enrollment as a second job for their administrative staff. The assumption has always been that payer enrollment is just a box-checking affair with minimal impact. The result of this approach is that these organizations have learned to live with regular write-offs and higher claims processing expense due to incorrect or missing enrollments.
