Days in Accounts Receivable (DAR) A growing number of days in accounts receivable are symptomatic of a faulty billing process. One way to determine DAR is to count days from the date of service to the date of payment for every claim and then average across all claims. A simpler way to compute average number of days in accounts receivable by taking a ratio of accounts receivable to average daily charges or Number of days in accounts receivable = (Accounts Receivable / Average Charge) x 365 This metric too depends on medical specialty patient demographics payer mix and CPT sample. Another downside is that this metric is sensitive to provider as it counts the lag time of unsubmitted claims for services already delivered.

And if neither party knows their responsibilities how can you expect that the relationship will work? Here is an example. You specify in the contract that it is the obligation of the providers office representative to supply you with all the payment remittances but you are not getting them which is causing you to do a lot of extra work in contacting the insurance carriers to check status on claims that were already paid.
