Efficient Payment Posting - Astron EHS Has the Potential

Talk about revenue cycle management and the first thing that comes to mind for most providers is claims handling, insurance verification or denial management. But the challenging step in the process - Payment posting is like a silent champion. Its significance is often overlooked and the advantages are thus, lost to many.



What is Payment Posting?


Payment posting is an integral part of medical billing. It presents a clear picture of the payments and financial infrastructure giving an opportunity to identify issues and fix them.


If the claim is processed in favor of payment by the payor, then a cheque or an Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) is done to the provider in lieu of the treatment delivered along with the explanation of benefits (EOB).


If the patient has not signed the assignment of benefits (AOB), then the payment goes to the patient. When received by the provider, these payments are entered in the medical billing system. The entire process is called Payment Posting.


Types of Payment Posting in Medical Billing


There are two types of payment posting in healthcare depending on the patient’s insurance coverage and financial ability.


1. Manual Posting:

Here the administrative or front office staff handles the task of filling the information. This can be prone to errors and typos, causing a delay in payment posting.


2. Auto Posting:

This software driven approach is the preferred mode of payment posting in today’s digital world. It is consistent, quick, less prone to errors like duplicate posting and causes no delay in revenue.
