Why is Your Behavioral Health Facility Being Audited?

Medical billing appeals and audits can be a daunting thing for any practice or behavioral health facility, so understanding why this is occurring is the first step in handling the situation. If a patient or their insurance company disagrees with an item or service that was provided by your medical team, they may withhold the reimbursement payment. 

How Can An Appeal Help You Receive Payment?

If a claim is problematic and you wish to receive payment, you will want to appeal a demand for payment. When it comes to the appeals process in the medical billing system, you must be confident that there was an error in the appeals process. Each provider will have a different appeals procedure, and you’ll want to comply with those details.
