WARNING. One of the most common ways to get flagged for a payer audit while using the EDI dashboard is to repeatedly resubmit your claims without working them. It sounds crazy, but without a clear understanding of the EDI dashboard, you could be doing this and not even realizing it.
Don’t be the definition of crazy and keep handling medical claims processing the same way and expect different results. Incomplete pre-authorizations, unconfirmed eligibility and unworked denials cost practices thousands of dollars in lost revenue every year. You can stop the drain right here.
