Improve Revenue Flow by Avoiding Denials


On average, $5 million worth of claims are initially denied annually per hospital. However, a more staggering fact is that 86% of those denials are avoidable and 65% of denials are never reworked.

By focusing on preventing denials, organizations can significantly improve their financial health. Collection rates increase, time to collect decreases, and staff expenses related to working claims and appealing denials is reduced. However, building a process to reduce denials takes time so organizations also need to make a concerted effort to rework and appeal denials to ensure they are not leaving any revenue behind.

AGS Health offers a variety of ways to control and avoid denials.
