Healthcare revenue leakage is an all-too-common and pervasive beast and operates among billing departments all over the nation. This is partly due to the fluctuating nature of payer regulations, but it can also be affected by the sheer complexity of the entire billing and audit process.

What Is a Revenue Leak?
What is a revenue leak? Revenue leakage occurs when a company is unable to collect money earned. This can occur for a number of different reasons, and these lost collection opportunities can feel like a bleeding wound to your practice. Revenue leakage carries with it the danger of costing healthcare facilities 10% or more of their revenue, but many providers simply do not have the resources to track that lost money down on their own.
A single revenue leak can cost a given provider tens, hundreds, or even thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, many do not even know that these costly leaks occur before an outside service is consulted. So, what is a revenue leak? A problem that could devastate your company’s financing.
How to Prevent a Revenue Leak
Partnering with a trained RCM service can be one of the most important first steps a practice can take in identifying and repairing messy revenue leaks. Billing audit services with an RCM team will often show:
- Revenue leaks a facility or provider had no former knowledge of
- Where the leaks can be plugged
- How to prevent future revenue leaks
Not only can a billing audit help plug your costly revenue leaks, but it can also identify other issues that could be putting your practice in serious jeopardy. If any aspect of your medical billing or coding services is not compliant with HIPAA standards, the federal government will have the opportunity to take serious action against you and your business. Your medical practice could be penalized if your billing services are not up to specific standards. An audit through an RCM service can help identify any potential issues so that you can solve them and keep your business safe from government action.
