The reimbursement system in the healthcare industry is very complicated. With federal and state regulations and third-party payers—each having their own set of adjustments and rules — providers are challenged at every turn. Now add to these struggles the challenges related to claims denials, appeals, and lost revenue. And one thing that can save providers from this financial mayhem is an effective RCM system.
