Medical Society of New Jersey Launches New Insurance Denial Registry

Wednesday, September 9, 2020  

The MSNJ registry will identify trends to improve access to care in New Jersey

Lawrenceville, NJ – The Medical Society of New Jersey (MSNJ) today announced the launch of a new insurance denial registry for physicians and physician office staff in New Jersey. The purpose of this registry is to track denials of healthcare services to New Jersey consumers. The information will identify areas for increased advocacy and improve the overall process for healthcare providers and patients alike.

“Contributing to the registry is quick and easy for a busy practice,” said Philip Kline, MD, President of MSNJ. “Our hope is that the data collected through this registry can serve as a way to identify trends in denials of care to patients and payment to physicians.”

The registry is designed for medical practices. Patients may file complaints through the registry directly with the New Jersey Department of Banking & Insurance. All contributions to the registry are strictly confidential, collected in a secure online database. The data collected will be aggregated and analyzed carefully for future advocacy efforts.

“This registry further demonstrates MSNJ’s ongoing commitment to improving the overall healthcare landscape for physicians and patients throughout the state,” said Larry Downs, CEO of MSNJ. “We hope that all New Jersey physicians and their practices will recognize its importance and be willing to contribute freely to the registry should any denial issues arise.”

New Jersey patients and practicing physicians seeking more information about the insurance denial registry should contact MSNJ at (609) 896-1766 or info@msnj.org. The registry is available online at: https://www.msnj.org/denialregistry.
