According to the journal of the American Academy of Family Practice, it costs $25 to re-process a "clean" claim. You can see how potential claims revenue can be eaten up by reworking denials. Most Community Health Centers don't have the staff to fix claim denials received from insurance. It can be overwhelming since about 29% of claims are commonly denied by payers. THE SYNERGY BILLING APPROACH: Understand payer data requirements, create configuration, rules, and data requirements for each payer, and scrub claims for accuracy prior to submission. This approach is effective. 90% of the CMS claims that we submit are paid within 60 days.
