I heard of a case in which an insurance company, on a couple of occassions, added more denials (higher dollar amounts) shortly after someone filed an appeal for a claim denial, even though the service was performed several months earlier. Is this common in some companies? Does this approach have a name? Is it to deter new appeals?
Usually, you need not to fight against your insurance company for settlement of your claims. However, there may be some incidents when an insurer has to fight for his claim when company denies to making payments of such claims. Though the feasibility is rare, you must know the ways to fight such denials.Claims submission errors may be obtained in a timely fashion through your EDI gateway mailbox on a report titled batch detail control listing.If the claim is denied on the grounds of higher cost, you can ask your physician to provide item-wise expenditure details and submit it to the insurance company.
