Intersect Healthcare accelerates the appeal process, reduces cost to appeal and protects your margin.
Claim denials from Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial payers are on the rise. And according to industry experts, up to two-thirds of these are recoverable, and almost all (90%) of them are preventable1. Yet approximately one-third of healthcare providers still use a manual process to manage payer claim denials, according to a recent HIMSS Analytics survey.
Three Payer Denial Appeal Trends to Know
1. Claims appeal process is costly, time-consuming and becoming more complex
3. More denials based on medical necessity rather than technical or demographic error.
A proactive approach is required to boost appeal success rates while reducing overall operational costs. Rely on Intersect Healthcare’s proven expertise to win back the revenue your organization rightfully earned.
