  • Here are some of the common reasons that can
    cause havoc to your chiropractic practice and
    prevent you from getting paid on time
  • Lack of documentation is one of the main reasons
    why claims get denied. Each claim needs to be
    supported with sufficient documentation because
    insurance companies have specific rules for
    coverage. For instance, each submitted claim
    should establish the necessity of patient care.
    If there is lack of relevant data or if there are
    inconsistencies, then it will hamper the chances
    of your claims getting paid.
  • It is necessary to make sure that there are no
    coverage problems in the patients plan. For
    instance, there are chances the insurance
    coverage of a patient doesnt cover chiropractic c
    are. To avoid such instances, it is important to
    verify the insurance plan of patients before
    providing them care. Regular eligibility check is
    vital for existing patients too. Dont wait for
    the patients to notify you of any changes in
    their insurance plans. Your chiropractic practice
    should gather the required data.

  • At times, insurance companies reject a claim if a
    practice is billing them for the wrong amount.
    This makes it necessary to review the medical
    billing process on a regular basis. In this
    scenario, you can also seek help of a
    clearinghouse for getting your claims checked and
    processed.
  • Errors in coding is another common reason why
    claims get denied for many chiropractic
    practices. Errors in coding are very common
    specially if paper billing is being done. If the
    billing staff is relying on templates and not
    cross checking the claims before submission, then
    it can lead to insurance companies rejecting the
    claims in case of errors.
  • Since a significant number of claims get denied
    by payers, it has become necessary for practices
    to streamline their billing processes and hire
    experienced staff.  Many chiropractors are
    choosing to outsource their billing requirements
    to a third party. They are hiring a billing
    company to get paid on time and improve their
    administrative processes.
