negative impact on the complete revenue cycle management and cash flow. The Best way to keep you income
streamline is to prevent the number of claim denials.
Here are the top most reasons of claim denials:
    1. Replicated claim and services: If the duplicate claims or services are entered in the patient’s record
       then it leads to claim denials. A configurable EMR Medical Billing Software by Ebiometronics
       checks each and every service entered and alerts the user immediately if the service already present in
       record.
    2. Claim or Service lacks information needed for adjudication: Some of the payers have very specific
       rules for their claims like they require information in some format that must be included on claims.
       Medical Billing Software allows the user to include such specialized code or data on claims.
    3. Imbursement is incorporated in the payment for some other service or procedure: If the payment of
       service is included in the payment for some another service then the claim is legible to be denied as
       here is the replication of data occurs.




    4. Time limit expires: When the time limit of filling up a claim has expired then the process of claim
       submission can’t be reached. As soon as you submit your claims, the faster you will be paid and it
       definitely eliminates the possibility of untimely filling denials.
   5. Payer’s Medicinal Policies are not clearly defined: You must be well aware with the medical policies
      of your payers. As the policies decide what you get in the end will so be clear with medical policies of
      respective payer.
   6. If patient’s health id number doesn’t matches with his/her name: Your medical billing services must
      be proper and secure. While claim filling one should carefully check the health Identification Number
      of a patient and his/her name. If this information doesn’t match then the claim is not accepted by the
      payer.
   7. In absence of precertification, payment is adjusted: Appropriate authorization and precertification
      details must be included in the claim filling. If this section remains empty then the claim is rejected or
      denied due to lack of authorization.
