INCREASE REVENUE BY 20% OR MORE, SPEED UP YOUR CASH FLOW.
Denials can have an adverse effect on your cash-flow. Managing denials promptly and effectively will result in an increase in the cash flow and enhance the effectiveness of the billing process with higher first-level passes. QWay’s Denial Management Program addresses both historical and future claims with the ability to recover otherwise lost revenue.
Denials occur due to reasons like:
- Inaccurate or Incomplete Insurance information
- No Pre-Authorization Code
- Errors and Omissions related to coding and charges
- Filing claims past the stipulated time
- Credentialing Errors or no enrollment of the provider.
The Denial Management process at Qway is carried out with data and trend analysis – the key to the success of the process. Our systematic way of tracking denials gets information back to the billing process to prevent future denials of the same nature.
We drive up your cash flow and reduce the flood of denials by:
- Analyzing the volume of the denials and baseline analysis
- Evaluating denials with respect to age, claim expiration, non-meeting of deadlines
- Statistically estimating the denials based on payers, providers, CPT codes and general non-compliance to the ICD 10 standards.
