Home Healthcare Accounts Receivable Services

As a home healthcare provider, you are responsible for providing a vast range of services to individuals at their homes. It is a crucial healthcare service that allows patients to receive medical care, treatment, or health assistance without being admitted to a hospital or nursing home. Home health care can also include nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medication management, wound care, and assistance with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and eating. Primarily, you take care of patients who are recovering from an illness, or surgery, or suffering from chronic conditions. Patient-care is the usual priority for providers, and this is probably the biggest reason why home-healthcare accounts receivable services are so frequently sought.

Unfortunately, many healthcare providers do not realize the extreme importance of ensuring healthy collections for services rendered. A struggling home healthcare practice, more often than not, can be linked to a poor or inefficient accounts receivable management process. Aging A/R can never be good news for any healthcare practice. And home healthcare is no exception. It requires a dedicated team of home healthcare accounts receivable specialists to ensure maximized collections from unpaid claims.

Challenges with Accounts Receivable Management for Home Healthcare Practices

As home healthcare providers primarily deal with active patient care, most of them often overlook collecting from unpaid claims, or adopting an organized approach to follow up with Payers and patients to recover the pending reimbursement. This, in turn, severely impacts the cash flow. Most of us will agree that small debts are common in any healthcare practice, but letting them accumulate unattended causes the most harm. Accumulated and aged claims, especially those that are older than 100 days, are very challenging to recover.

When it comes to collecting from accounts receivable, specialized home healthcare denial management services are something that no provider can afford to ignore. The truth is, most providers find it quite difficult to handle follow-ups with concerned patients and payers, minimizing write-offs and shrinking A/R buckets, and expanding payment options. While everybody understands the importance of engaging professional assistance in this regard, finding such skilled and experienced personnel amidst the nationwide labor shortage proves to be a practical impediment.
