Pain management practices face a number of challenges. To crack down on overutilization, policymakers and payers are bundling image guidance, creating stricter medical policies, and launching revenue-stalling prepayment audits. While the overutilization is driven by providers outside of the pain management specialties, it is pain management providers who are hit hardest by the increased scrutiny, as they rely on these procedures for the bulk of their revenue. That’s why pain management practices have to be sharper than ever about keeping track of new policies, meeting the requirements, and streamlining their appeals process so they don’t waste time—and money—chasing revenue they’re owed.
