How to collect Patient balances at the time of visit?

Uncollected patient balance is a big issue for most practices in the country. Some practices have as high as 20% of their revenue in uncollected patient payments year over year. The majority of the uncollected balances is due to high deductibles and co-insurances from the patient. The insurances have complex rules on how they pay each claim and because it is very difficult to accurately estimate the patient responsibility at the time of the visit.

“AcerHealth streamlines collecting the patient balances at the time of visit.”

  • Accurately Estimate the patient’s responsibility due to deductible and co-insurances
  • Eligibility and Benefits Verification done prior to the patient visit
  • List the current co-pay that needs to be collected
  • List the patient’s previous balance and related detailed statement

At an average, 20% of the practice revenue is directly from the patients. 30 to 40% of the patients do not pay, which translates to around 8% of the practice revenue. Practices using AcerHealth have cut down their mailing patient statement charges by 50% as they collect patient balances upfront.
