Why work for Prompt RCM?

  • BIG Challenges: Here at Prompt, we are solving complex and unique problems that have plagued the healthcare industry since the dawn of time.
  • Talented People: Prompt didn’t happen by chance, it’s a team of incredibly talented and proven individuals who all made their mark before joining forces to build the greatest software on the planet for rehab therapists.
  • Healthy Approach: This isn’t an investment bank, we work long hours when it’s needed, but at Prompt you own your workload and the entire organization takes a liking to smart work (over hard work).
  • Positive Impact: Prompt helps outpatient rehab organizations treat more patients and deliver better care with less environmental waste. That means less surgery and less narcotic-based pain treatment, all while turning a paper-heavy industry digital. We aren’t enthralled with patting ourselves on the back everyday, but it does feel good 🙂

Key Responsibilities:

  • Prepare and accurately resubmit comprehensive corrected claims to various insurance companies, adhering closely to specific payer guidelines and contractual requirements, both electronically and via paper submission.
  • Conduct thorough analysis of first pass rejected claims, ensuring completeness and accuracy of information for subsequent clean claim submission, thereby minimizing delays in reimbursement.
  • Perform diligent research and follow-up on the status of primary and secondary billing claims for assigned insurance plans, proactively resolving any outstanding issues to expedite payment.
  • Review, assess, and process all claim appeals, meticulously resubmitting to insurance carriers with comprehensive and accurate supporting documentation to maximize reimbursement.
  • Evaluate customer accounts and recommend adjustments or write-offs to the Manager based on the collectability of accounts with insurance carriers or patients, maintaining a balanced approach to revenue recovery.
  • Identify and promptly report any billing problems, errors, or discrepancies to management, facilitating proactive resolution of billing trends and ensuring ongoing revenue integrity.
  • Generate and distribute monthly patient balance due statements in accordance with the explanation of benefits received from insurance carriers, fostering transparent communication, and facilitating timely resolution of outstanding balances.
