Protect Your Contracts: Overcoming Insurance Audits with WCH's Expert Assistance
Healthcare providers often encounter insurance audits that can have significant implications for their contracts with insurance companies. Failure to resolve ongoing audits can eventually lead to contract termination or limitations.
Understanding the Impact of Unresolved Audits
Insurance audits that remain unresolved for an extended period can have severe consequences for healthcare providers. If an audit is left hanging without a proper resolution, insurance companies may choose to terminate or limit contracts. It can significantly disrupt revenue streams, hinder patient care, and negatively impact the financial stability of healthcare practices.
The Connection Between Audits and Credentialing
It's crucial to recognize the direct relationship between audits and credentialing. Audits that are not adequately addressed can raise concerns about a provider's compliance and adherence to insurance company guidelines. Such doubts can jeopardize the provider's credentialing status with the insurance company, potentially leading to contract limitations or even termination.
