Some hospitals might think that there isn’t any cash potential left in super-aged claims. However, at HFRI, we are very successful at wringing the maximum cash out of aged, prior-worked insurance AR. The results? Increased cash flow and decreased bad debt reserves caused by aging accounts.
New revenue opportunities
Hospitals and health systems are starting to realize that pursuing long-aged claims they previously would’ve written off presents a potentially major opportunity to recover “found” revenue. Just as you depend on secondary collection firms to resolve patient bad debt, you can count on HFRI, specials in final-effort collections, to work super-aged insurance claims.
Also known as secondary assigned accounts or second placement AR services, final-effort insurance collections provide a critical safeguard to ensure no insurance payments legitimately due the hospital go uncollected, regardless of age.
Benefits of enlisting a final-effort recovery partner
- The establishment of an AR management process that offers a systematic approach to obtaining 100% claims resolution
- A reduction in write-offs, a commensurate increase in cash flow and a decrease in bad debt reserves caused by aging accounts
- Decreased expenses associated with zero balance vendor reviews due to reduced write-off volume
- Greater transparency to enable hospitals to evaluate performance across the entire revenue cycle
Let HFRI focus on those claims that are approaching the end of the typical recovery cycle to help you collect more cash.
