Coding & billing tip of the day: Take advantage of claim scrubbing functionality


Manually filling out claims increases the chances of error and bogs down the claim submission process, according to Revenue Cycle Services Director Jessica Nelson of Surgical Information Systems.

Ms. Nelson shared the following tip on Surgical Information Systems' website.

"Many modern ASC business management solutions may come with claim scrubbing functionality. With this solution, your system will check for missing or incorrect information prior to sending the claim to the insurance company. For instance, claim scrubbing will review your codes for 'reason for visit,' 'external cause of injury,' 'primary diagnosis code,' 'other diagnosis code' and 'ICD procedure code,' and provide a warning or reject the claim if the incorrect information is reported on the file."
