Caryl Serbin Writes Column on ASC Revenue Cycle Management Struggles for Becker's ASC Review

Caryl Serbin, RN, BSN, LHRM, President & Founder of Serbin Medical Billing, has contributed a column to Becker's ASC Review discussing areas of struggle with internal ASC revenue cycle management.

The areas discussed are as follows:

  • Coding
  • Clean claims
  • Denials and incorrect payments follow-up
  • Appeals
  • Patient statements
  • Refunds
  • Accounts receivable
  • Relevant reports

As Caryl writes, "There are other areas in the revenue cycle that can be problematic. Those described [in the column] are just a composite of likely areas to examine for slowdowns in the revenue stream. It is important that a member of your ASC's management team continually audits all areas of the revenue cycle to prevent disruption of your cash flow."
