At FWS, we continuously try to innovate and optimize our processes by developing smaller process subsets that all our clients can identify with and get behind. Multi-layer claims review is but one example of such a sub-process, which ensures not only up to 100% accuracy but also breakneck speed which is beneficial in the field of healthcare. This includes -
We believe the first step in the claims review process is also the most important since all claims with simple errors and omissions can be returned at this stage itself, thereby reducing processing load down the line. During this phase, we check for the following -
During this phase, an in-depth check of the claims is made to get specific details pertaining to the payer's payment policies. This step is important since many incorrect payouts can be stopped at this stage itself. Issues identified during this phase include -
Submission of duplicate claims - Claims which have already been submitted for the same date/procedure/by the same person are flagged
Unnecessary Service Delivered - Occasionally claims are made for inappropriate and expensive services which could have been easily avoided for cheaper alternatives or quicker procedures
Invalid Diagnosis and Procedure Codes - Diagnostic and procedure codes are sometimes listed wrongly in the claims, and when caught, can save you further trouble
Invalid Pre-authorization - Occasionally, the diagnosis, surgery, or performed procedure fails to match with the information provided during pre-authorization
Deadline Timing Has Passed - If the medical claim is submitted after the deadline has passed as ascertained by your insurance policy, then the claim processing is stopped
Patient Eligibility - If the patient is ineligible to apply for the claim either due to claim mismatch, missed payments, etc., then the claim can be rejected in such a scenario
During this stage, our experienced team of medical and healthcare claims examiners starts checking the claims for the further mismatch. For the same, they may ask for copies of medical records and other relevant documentation to check the authenticity of the claim. This step is extremely crucial when claims are made for unlisted procedures and when the medical necessity for the same needs to be validated.
There are mainly three types of payment determinations we use at Flatworld Solutions, they include -
Paid - The insurance payer determines the claim can be reimbursed when the healthcare claim is considered paid
Denied - The payer determines that the claim cannot be reimbursed when the healthcare claim is considered as denied
Reduced - The procedure code can be down-coded when the billed service level is considered too high based on the diagnosis
In the final stage, we submit the payment to the office supplied by the payer and is called the explanation of the payment. This includes information such as explanation reasons for the reduction in payment, denial, adjustment, etc. It also includes information such as allowed amount, paid amount, approved amount, covered amount, patient responsibility amount, adjudication date, etc.
