How Much Are You Paying For Paper Claims?


You would think the answer to this is simple, but it isn’t. Your paper claim cost is not equivalent to just the postage, stationary and staff time! A study by the American Medical Association estimates that it costs physicians between $6 and $12 in labor and overhead to process a paper claim. Factoring in errors at an average of 25% of all paper claims and the time it takes to reprocess unpaid claims, the inefficiency and wasted dollars is alarming!
