“The first thing that clinicians need to do is implement an electronic medical record system,” said Chhoda. “It will make submitting claims and getting paid infinitely easier. There’s less chance of claims being rejected or denied with an EMR and it significantly reduces the wait time for funds to be deposited.”
He added that completion of the claim cycle used to take weeks and even months to complete. EMR technology has reduced that wait to 10 days or less, while allowing for real time claim submission. Today’s insurance payers have a variety of requirements, from specific forms to filing deadlines. It’s up to the practice’s biller and/or coder to ensure that the terms for each submission have been met.
Chhoda proposed the following steps during a claim cycle to ensure payment approval.
The claim cycle process is facilitated by an EMR and Chhoda’s new checklist provides billing and coding specialists with the appropriate procedure to follow when utilizing EMR technology. Changes in forms, coding and submission requirements change with little notice. Chhoda’s data combined with an integrated EMR ensures clean submissions, few rejections and fees that are reimbursed quicker.
