Learn the secrets to increase your clinical laboratory’s cash flow line by submitting clean COVID-19 test claims to payers and getting faster settlements
During the pandemic, it is essential that all your lab’s COVID-19 test claims are paid—and paid promptly! But as your billing and collections team knows, health plans are unpredictable in how they process and remit payments for COVID-19 test claims.
This is happening because— across the nation—health plans are rejecting significant numbers of claims for COVID-19 that meet all criteria, including federal and state mandates requiring such payment. For many clinical laboratories, this means less cash flow… as well as increased expenses to further document and resubmit these denied claims.
