Increase Pay-up by Successfully Appealing Claim Denials

The Problem:  What if every time you had a patient in v-fib, you were allowed to shock him only once? What would your success rate be? Everyone in EMS knows that defibrillation often works only on the second, or even the third, shock. The same principle holds true when it comes to getting reimbursed for medical transportation. It often takes one, even two, appeals before claims are paid. In fact, as many as 50 percent of denied claims are eventually paid when the provider appeals the Explanation of Benefits (EOB).

The Solution:
  “Insurance companies deny thousands of claims a year with what appears to be substantial evidence to support such non-payment,” explained Tammy Tipton, president of Appeal Solutions, a manufacturer of software to help process EOB appeals. “They do this knowing that most denials are accepted without question or action. They know many medical providers do not have the time, legal expertise and insurance industry experience to investigate the basis, or lack thereof, of claim denials.” provides articles & case studies to assist medical providers resolve denied insurance claims.
