Authored by Vice President of Revenue Cycle Michael Orseno, Regent Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) this week released an article that outlines five ways in which Regent RCM and ZirMed combine to improve revenue performance.

“The ASC revenue cycle is complex and we both know that. Through our partnership, we leverage our expertise and provide ASCs with the support and technology needed to effectively manage the revenue cycle,” said Orseno. “With this article we drill down on five keys to getting paid quickly and efficiently.” Strategies include:

  1. Verify insurance coverage.
  2. Code claims correctly the first time.
  3. Minimize claim denials.
  4. Act quickly against denials.
  5. Arrange for/Collect patient out-of-pocket expense up front.

“Surgery centers need revenue cycle strategies that work and together with ZirMed, we deliver breakthrough revenue cycle management solutions that enable partner centers to collect every dollar they are entitled to,” added Orseno.

The Center for Specialized Surgery

Regent RCM Awards 2016 ASC Business Office Manager of the Year

Rachel Caksackkar from The Center for Specialized Surgery (TCSS) in Ft. Meyers, Florida, received the 2016 Regent RCM Business Office Manager of the Year award at the Regent RCM-hosted Business Office Manager Conference, held recently in Lafayette, California.

Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) business office managers throughout the country attended the conference, which highlighted insights and information from leading speakers in the industry.

“Rachel exemplifies the best qualities in an ASC business office manager,” said Regent RCM Vice President Michael Orseno. “Her positive attitude, tenacity, attention to detail, and dedication play a major role in the success of her facility. We’re thrilled to recognize her as this year’s winner.”

Orseno added that of the candidates in consideration for this award, Caksackkar was chosen because her work, in conjunction with the Regent RCM team, contributed to markedly improving revenue cycle metrics for TCSS in the past year.

Among her duties, Caksackkar handles patient financial counseling to estimate out-of-pocket costs in advance of procedures. She reviews scheduled cases against anticipated reimbursement to protect the facility against revenue loss, and she works diligently with the Regent RCM team on turning around unbilled cases, such as instances where physicians did not dictate in a timely manner or additional information was needed for coding or billing.

“It’s an honor to receive this award from Regent RCM in acknowledgment of the work I do on behalf of The Center for Specialized Surgery,” said Caksackkar. “Partnering with the specialists at Regent RCM has been a great experience and our collaborative approach makes all the difference in our success.”
