Pain Medicine groups understand the challenges of the payment lifecycle. Many pain procedures, modalities, and medications require prior authorization. The volume of payer provisions strains resources and directly affects patient outcomes.
According to the AMA’s recent survey, 92% of physicians say that prior authorization demands reduce patient satisfaction industry-wide. The complex third-party payer process leads to denials and lost reimbursement that inevitably affects revenue down the line.
To simplify the process, pain medicine groups require advanced automation and knowledgeable experts adept at absorbing fluctuating guidelines and quick deadlines. Pain medicine practices need a complete payment lifecycle solution that includes a robust prior authorization solution supported by certified experts who can properly code and bill the first time and manage denials promptly.
