The AIMA approach is to conduct a thorough audit of your current Accounts Receivable processes. We look at your individual business model to identify areas of improvement and potential challenges. Our skilled AR team process denied claims in daily bunches. This pre-emptive approach in handling denials will significantly improve your “days in” AR. We make sure to classify the no-response claims to aging buckets alongside filters such as high-dollar value, payers, etc. Unpaid claims are first sorted and ordered by financial class and days. We then proactively call the appropriate insurance companies or self-pay patients to resolve any non-payment issues. AIMA has a proven track record of AR estimation audits. We collect maximum revenue from Accounts Receivable previously listed as non-collectable by the regular billers.
