Denial prevention playbook

11 top causes of denials (and how to fix them)

If you work in denial prevention, you live and die by codes. CARCs and RARCs can tell you why a claim was paid differently than it was billed. But by the time you get to a code, a denial has already happened. That means time-consuming appeals, manual work, extended timelines, and lost revenue.

That’s not ideal — and it’s why we created this resource.
