Detailed Medical Claims Billing Scrubbing, Manageable Work List, Easy Correction
Claim Inspector checks each claim for potential rejection errors in three specific areas.
- Procedure Coding – compliance with CCI policies, gender and age restrictions, and medical necessity requirements using CPT/ICD9 crosswalk data
- Diagnosis Coding – validating primary diagnoses and proper levels of specificity, as well as the inclusion of any required accompanying diagnoses
- Payer-specific Rules – local and national coverage determination policies for all major government- and commercial payers for medical claims
Claims with potential problems in your medical claims billing workflow are included in an easy-to-manage list and linked to detailed screens describing the error, related procedure codes and other vital visit information, together with carrier-specific information and contacts. Problem medical claims can be quickly and easily corrected without disrupting billing workflow, speeding submission and dramatically reducing the rejected medical claim billing banter that creates a drag on productivity and reimbursement.
