Insurance & Patient Payment Posting
Payment Posting & Monitoring of Patient Accounts:
Under-payments are, unfortunately, a common issue with insurance claim payments. Paying very close attention to detail is important when posting payments to patient accounts. While posting insurance payments, our team closely monitors each line-item payment for issues and take appropriate action when necessary.
Common variables causing under-payment of claims:
- Is the practice's fee schedule set appropriately so maximum allowed reimbursement is received?
- Was the reimbursement accurate based on the amount of units billed?
- Were appropriate modifier codes used on CPT codes where reimbursement is usually deemed exclusive to another code/service given on the same date-of-service?
- Did the patient pay the correct copay amount at the time-of-service?
