Most providers seem to pay a lot more in billing staff/front desk staff than they should because nothing is automated. Taking the time to scrub the claim on the front end, prior to submittal is the key to success, rather than copious amounts of auditing after the denial has taken place.
Applied Medical Systems thrives in this area with our front end rules system called RealClean. For example, RealClean targets certain combinations of diagnosis and procedure codes and payers, and stops the claim to request a chart audit if we think a refraction or fundus photos may have been performed and not coded.
