Insurance eligibility verification is the first and one of the key steps in medical billing and coding process. Most of the medical claims are denied or delayed by the insurance companies mainly due to incorrect or inadequate coverage details provided by the patients during their visits or when the current coverage information is not updated by the hospital or administrative staff. This directly impacts the cash flow of the company by delaying the reimbursements.

Then we capture and update details in the patient notes - copay, deductible, co-insurance, in-network, and out of network benefits, and, PCP name matching.
If required, we promptly contact the patient for follow-up encounter to seek any missing or incorrect information and get the required authorization as a part of our service procedure check. This helps in keeping track of all the information and cross verifying these details before the final submission is made.
