A recent study found that hospitals lose around $262 billion annually on claims that are denied by insurance Providers. In fact, 9% of all claims submitted are initially denied, and the cost to contest these claims averages around $118 per claim.
Denials can occur for a multitude of reasons, which makes pinpointing the exact reason why for each claim a difficult task. Providers who invest in a partner like Parathon Recovery Services, however, are at a distinct advantage. While the average recovery for hospitals cited in the study was 63% of all claims, Parathon Recovery Services boasts and average recovery of 80% of the claims we dispute.
