2010 Medical Net Collection Rate Exceeds 99.9%

Written by Jessica Graham | February 12, 2011

For medical practices that were with GroupOne for all of 2010, GroupOne’s overall net collection rate for 2010 exceeded 99.9%. Based on industry survey reports, the average net collection rate for all medical practices is slightly better than 96.3%. The rate for the better performing medical groups according to industry criteria is slightly more than 99.7%.

For the average medical provider, an additional 2.5 percentage points in medical claim net collection rate can equal $10,000 - $15,000 of additional annual revenue per doctor.

In November and December of 2010, Gateway EDI also awarded GroupOne and some of its clients “The 99 Percent Club”.  Winners of the award achieve the Gold Standard of Revenue Cycle for medical practices by submitting at least 99% of electronic claims to Gateway EDI ERROR FREE.

According to recent studies, on average approximately 25%-30% of all medical practice income is lost due to incorrect coding, under pricing, missed or never submitted charges, and nonexistent or improper follow-up. Hundreds of millions of dollars is lost annually due to medical billing errors. How does your current medical revenue cycle process measure up?
