Your Weekly Billing Meeting Is Hurting Your Practice

“My billing company works with a lot of practices, each of which have weekly meetings.

If I don’t have a weekly billing meeting, my claims fall to the bottom of the pile.”

Because of two common problems, most practices that outsource billing insist on weekly teleconferences where unpaid claims are reviewed, and priorities are established. If you’re managing your outsourced biller’s priorities every week, you’ve got the wrong biller. Since when is it okay to pay someone to do a job while you then do the job for them?

Problem #1: Your Practice Is Submitting Dirty Claims

Practices often tell us that their first pass claim acceptance rates of 98%, 95%, even 92%. It’s easy to misinterpret these stats:

  • A 95% first pass claim acceptance isn’t an ‘A’ grade,
  • It means that 5% of your claims are denied.
  • You’re treating 1 out of 20 patients FOR FREE.

Solution #1: Systems 4PT’s first pass claim acceptance rate is 99.87%.

Systems 4PT Practices Submit The Cleanest Claims In The Industry

  • If the claim doesn’t pass our integrated payer rules, our HardStop™ Technology ensures the claim does not bill out.
  • Dirty claims that don’t bill out are quarantined in a high-profile, Treatment Not Billable Quarantine
  • Systems 4PT Provides Visual Confirmation of Clean Claims. When a claim satisfies all known payer rules, that patient name visually “turns green” on the schedule. “Green patients” get paid.


Problem #2: Your Biller Is Not Making Collection Calls

When practices insist on weekly meetings to prioritize collection work, it’s obvious that the biller isn’t doing their job.

Solution #2: Systems 4PT is the only billing system that leverages Artificial Intelligence to drive collection activity.

Artificial intelligence within Systems 4PT establishes “payment norms” for every payer by analyzing every claim, for every patient in your region, every day. If any of your claims deviate from your region’s payment norm, the computer feeds that claim to the collector.

This intelligence is also cognizant of timely filing, claim size, electronic vs. snail mail, necessity for attachments, necessity for appeals, and much more.


A With Systems 4PT, there’s no need for weekly billing meetings

Our software guides your staff to prevent the most common causes for dirty claims with our task manager Work Lists. Your clinic submit clean claims the first time. It’s A LOT easier to correct a problem 15 days after signing the note, vs. 60 or 90 days after the fact. Systems 4PT’s unpaid claims are corrected far before they are 30 days past due, which is why Systems 4PT practices enjoy an average collection cycle of 18 days, nationwide. What’s your collection cycle?

When claims are submitted with 99.87% first pass acceptance, and then when any unpaid claims are attacked, reimbursements blossom!
