Revenue is the lifeblood of your urgent care business and reimbursement per visit is an important indicator of your clinics’ performance. Simply put, reimbursement per visit is one of the easiest metrics to watch to predict revenue and potential success. But many factors like front-desk efficiency, real-time insurance verification, accurate coding, complete documentation, payer contracts, and effective collection processes play a part in reimbursement per visit—and your success.
In the latest issue of Urgent Care Quarterly, available at booth #407 at UCAOA 2017 Fall Conference, we take a look at urgent care reimbursement trends over the last four years and some of the variables that can have an impact—like location.
A few trends emerge as we look at individual regions, especially in the Southwest, where average reimbursements have risen from less than $110 per visit in 2013 to just over $125 in 2016. In the Southeast, average reimbursement per visit has fallen from about $130 in 2013 to just over $120 in 2016. Get more insight on this and other data points in the Urgent Care Quarterly – Fall 2017.
