In the healthcare industry, denial management is the process of investigating, analyzing, and resolving denied insurance claims. It is a critical aspect of revenue cycle management (RCM), as denied claims can lead to lost revenue and delayed payments.
According to the American Medical Association, an estimated 8% of all healthcare claims are denied. This means that healthcare organizations lose billions of dollars each year due to denied claims. In addition, the average time to resolve a denied claim is 45 days, which can further delay payments and impact cash flow.
There are a number of reasons why claims may be denied, including:
Incorrect or incomplete documentation
Lack of prior authorization
Denial management can help to prevent and resolve denied claims by:
Identifying and correcting documentation errors
Obtaining prior authorization for services
Coding claims accurately
Staying up-to-date on payer requirements
Tracking claims throughout the reimbursement process

Increased cash flow: When claims are denied, it can take weeks or even months to receive payment. This can put a strain on a healthcare organization's cash flow. Effective denial management can help to speed up the payment process and improve cash flow.
Improved patient satisfaction: When patients are denied claims, they may be frustrated and angry. This can lead to decreased patient satisfaction and loyalty. Effective denial management can help to reduce patient frustration and improve patient satisfaction.
