Demographics and charge entry are the crucial part of any practice revenue because incorrect patient demographics cause rejections and denials which led to delay in payments. Whereas, incorrect charge entry causes low revenue than the rendered services deserve.
Charge Entry is the process of allocating the appropriate dollar amount to the patient claims according to the medical codes and fee schedule chosen for the medical services rendered. The reimbursement of the claims for healthcare provider’s services are dependent on the charges entered for the healthcare services performed. The process of charge entry should be error free because errors can lead to increase in denials rate.
