So, you have a clearinghouse partner. Great. But what if they only offer paper claims for certain payers? Not so great. The ability to submit claims electronically is key to maximizing your revenue stream. If your clearinghouse provider no longer offers electronic claims submission, you might want to consider a change. And don’t worry. It’s easy.
The Benefits of Electronic Claim Submission
When you submit paper claims, a lot can go wrong along the way. Your claims and your organization’s cashflow are at the mercy of postage. And not to mention, the entire claims management process is slowed to a crawl. With an electronic clearinghouse partner, you’re able to submit your claims instantly and track their status. By cutting out the time it takes for a paper claim to travel from provider to payer, electronic claims can shorten the time it takes to get paid. Electronic claims also eliminate clutter caused by paperwork and can reduce overhead costs.
Switching is Simple
