Lack of
Data Transparency

Do you feel like you're making decisions in the dark?

Challenge: No visibility into reimbursement rates, denial trends, coding gaps, drug expenses or actual payments received.

Denial Management

Are you barely keeping up with denials and reimbursing high-cost drugs?

Challenge: Underpayments due to incorrect rates, dosages, exclusions; Claim denials from insufficient notes, coding gaps, lack of authorizations.

Impact: Loss of hundreds of thousands in revenue annually. Significant costs and staff hours wasted appealing and resubmitting claims. Forced cutbacks on drug inventory – limiting treatment options.

Sights on Success

A Retina Practice's Turnaround Tale

A retina practice faced significant challenges with Medicare and commercial payer underpayments for recently launched drugs, threatening their financial stability.

Challenge 1

Lack of awareness or contract management led to the acceptance of underpayments, with claims being closed without further action.

Viewgol's Role

Helped recover underpayments from closed encounters, identifying that the practice had not loaded contracts or was unaware of established rates.

Outcome 1

Recovered $374,000 in previously unpaid claims and reduced the practice's accounts receivable (AR) balance from $11 million to $371,000, significantly improving cash flow.

This included an 86% recovery rate for Drug A ($98,319 out of $190,153 across 94 encounters) and a 100% success rate for Drug B ($40,603 from 18 claims).

A Multi-Location Eyecare Practice's Financial Breakthrough

A multi-location ophthalmology practice faced underpayments and contract management issues after acquiring two new clinics.

Challenge

The practice inherited various payer contracts with complex factors affecting reimbursement rates. Decentralized contract management made tracking accurate rates difficult. Claims analysis revealed lower than expected payments across locations, and denials and appeals processes were disjointed.

Viewgol's Role

Implemented Viewgol’s Managed Care Contract Support.

  • Obtained key payer contracts and meticulously constructed comprehensive fee schedules.
  • Integrated schedules with historical claims data and identified over $500,000 in underpayments.
  • Determined errors in fee schedule configuration for newly acquired sites caused inaccurate reimbursements.
  • Presented detailed findings on affected claims, demonstrating systematic underpayment.
  • Assisted practice leadership in coordinating payer outreach and securing reconciliatory payments.

Outcome

Recovered over $500,000 in historical revenue previously left unclaimed, streamlined understanding of contractual obligations across locations, and instituted centralized monitoring of accurate payments owed.

Optimization Success

An Ophthalmology Group’s Billing Optimization Success

An ophthalmology practice encountered underpayments from a major national payer due to low charge rates on new drug codes.

Challenge

The practice was initially only receiving 35% of billed charges due to low list prices.

Viewgol's Role

Implemented recommendations to update charge rates for new drug codes.

Outcome

After updating and increasing drug charges per Viewgol's recommendations, the practice collected approximately 2 times higher reimbursements from the major national payer, even at the same 35% rate. Adjusted billing charges led to an increase in allowed amounts by more than double for Drug C, from $420 to $882 for 0.3mg dosage and from $700 to $1,470 for 0.5mg dosage. For Drug D, charge adjustments resulted in the allowed amount increasing from $1,050 to $2,310.
