A new survey shows that almost “half of practice-based providers report difficulty communicating with and interacting with payers, compared with almost a third of facility-based providers. Among the top issues identified by providers as leading to dissatisfaction with payers are: redundant information requests, denied claims and uncompensated care, as well as inconsistent rules among health plans.”
Why are we dealing with these middlemen (aka idiots) anymore? They create hurdles and friction. They rip you off and make you work to get paid. And they take most of the money!
In the article they use the term “provider abrasion”. Uh….ya think?
