    Default Urgent care center

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello All,

    I have to assist a physician who just recently open an urgent care center. His biller is a certified coder, but 80% of his claims are returned / rejected / denied.

    Is any one have any information regarding billing for urgent care center?
    Some of his patients are returning to him as follow up care, they are not a new patient anymore.

    80% is a terrible rejection percentage. Have you noticed any one recurrent reason? There must be something or a couple of somethings that is being submitted incorrect every time. As far as new or established I would expect him to have a large number of established patients as an urgent care. What is being submitted as the place of service?

    If he just opened I wonder if there are some credentialling issues as well.
