and Work Edits
Medical claims scrubbing, an important step in the revenue cycle process, requires checking of claims using clearinghouse interfaces prior to submission to the insurance payer. The scrubbing process identifies issues with claims and correct them.
The benefit of having a work edits team understanding and addressing the issues with claims proactively using claims submission interfaces is that changes can be made instantly, rather than waiting for weeks for a denial to come back from the payer and having to reprocess the claim.
According to the AMA, the expense of inefficient healthcare claims processing, payment, and reconciliation comprises
10-14% of practice revenue.
