Transfer DRG Solutions

Transfer DRGs are one of the more common sources of lost revenue for hospitals. In many cases, transfer DRGs can result in incorrect payment reductions, leading to an overall loss in hospital revenue. This occurs when a patient’s discharge status code does not reflect their post-acute care.

While the loss from a single transfer DRG may be small, these cases can accumulate into millions of dollars in lost revenue per year for a single hospital. To avoid these losses, hospitals need to partner with knowledgeable teams for transfer DRG recovery. Read on to learn how CorroHealth offers industry-leading transfer DRG solutions that can recover millions of dollars for hospitals each year.

The Benefits of Outsourcing Transfer DRG Reviews

One of the main reasons why transfer DRGs are such a troublesome source of revenue loss is that they often occur due to factors beyond a hospital’s control. In many cases, patients do not receive their planned post-acute care due to a failure on their part to comply or follow up with initial care plans.

Though this is not the fault of the hospital or medical provider, Medicare and Medicare Advantage often use these instances as grounds for imposing illegitimate reductions in payment. Since reviewing these payment reductions is often time- and resource-consuming, hospitals usually do not have the means to pursue such reviews on their end. For this reason, partnering with an experienced transfer DRG review service like CorroHealth is essential for recovering lost revenue.
