How to Prevent NEMT Billing Errors
A rejected claim is any claim that contains one or more errors and therefore can’t be processed. Clerical mistakes like incorrect passenger data and insurance information, mismatched codes, and incorrect services are some of the most common reasons for claim rejections. Patient ineligibility is another reason a claim could be rejected, though this is a trickier problem to correct.
How to Prevent Rejected Claims:
The most efficient way to prevent rejections is by billing with a reliable NEMT billing software. The best systems on the market scrub all claims before they’re submitted, ensuring both data and codes are correct before they’re sent to the payer.
Denied claims are ones that have been processed by the payer by deemed unpayable. This could be due to a number of different reasons, just like rejected claims. As long as patient coverage is valid, a denied claim can be fixed and resubmitted for payment.
How to Prevent Denied Claims:
Again, using a proper software tool is the number one best way to prevent denied claims. We’re only human and mistakes happen, but software systems are built to check claims for errors and save you time and money by getting paid properly the first time.
