Sometimes getting a medical claim paid correctly can be a real battle. It starts when a charge that should be covered is denied. You call customer service, and they tell you that it will be reprocessed. Then, in a few days, another denial arrives with a brand new denial code. You call again. It's denied again. And chances are that it will stay that way because it's now caught up in an insurance company-induced inertia - a claims netherworld where nothing is paid easily, if at all.
Recently a clinic manager told me; "Resolving wrongly denied medical claims used to be a simple process. A biller working in our office would stamp “APPEAL” in big red letters on a photocopy of the claim, and mail it back to the insurance company. These days, you’d be wise to put the cost of that postage in the bank, and throw away both the APPEAL stamp and its red ink stamp pad because it won’t even make it past the insurance company’s initial computer screening. They’ll toss it into the trash and you’ll never hear anything back from them. Today, you need to get your 'A-game' on. Otherwise, you won’t see a penny."
Getting your A-game on is why MedicalClaimsHelp.org was created. Available here is what you need to get medical claims paid correctly.

If you understand what's really happening through the various stages of the life of a claim, you can usually avoid the pitfalls that often result in wrongly denied or rejected medical claims. Once you know that, you can then determine where the system went sideways and proceed accordingly to get it done right. Be your own advocate!
