An efficient report system helps you in understanding whether your practice is making money or not. Out of the many reports that are sent on a monthly basis, Accounts Receivable Aging report helps in understanding how long insurance claims and patient balances have been outstanding. This is displayed both in dollar terms and as a percentage of 120 days. The lower the percentage, the better the results; which indicate that you are getting paid in a timely manner.

An aging report gives you an illustration of the money that is outstanding to your practice. It is segregated in such a way that you can review all accounts that are due and past due. You can also see which accounts are 30 days late, 60 days late and 90 days late. As the name suggests Accounts Receivable Aging report, includes the age of outstanding claims.
