No, a blanket rebilling of all unpaid claims may produce a large volume of denials and may delay submission of information or corrected claims that are necessary for payment. This is true for several reasons.

If your practice does not currently use a claims scrubber, these automated programs can be used to detect and fix errors on claims prior to submission or alert staff to do so. However, it is best to investigate and get local references for these products, as a claims scrubber that fails to reflect up-to-date billing and payment policies of local plans may result in more work by your staff and slower payment.
