Are you struggling to survive in an economy where margins keep reducing and the competition keeps increasing? Are you looking for a system which can automate your billing management systems? Then, pharmacy billing is what you need! Irrespective of the sector and the vertical, companies are relying on automating their management systems.

Pharmacy Billing Services Offered by Flatworld Solutions
Daily Census Updates
Census maintenance is a very important function from a medical billing point of view, as it involves creating proper records of the patient and the payee. It involves recording information of patient discharges, change of physicians, etc. All this is essential especially if your customers plan to make a medical claim.
Admission is the first step in the medical billing process and involves recording the details of the patients like their name, age, blood group, medical history, diagnostic reports, previous prescriptions, known allergies, etc.
Prior Authorization Document Management
The billing management systems we develop ensure that complete authorizations are taken before the processing begins. This ensures that the patients are always covered via a health plan and there are minimal claim denials. Our authorization systems are set to handle every drug category and emergency levels.
Refill management is another area that requires great attention and quicker actions, as your customers are not going to be very patient with you the second time they come around. We will help you set up all the necessary approvals and reminders so that when a customer comes in for a refill, you can process it right away without any delay.
We know that every small service that doesn't get billed impacts your bottom line directly, so we take care and handle it with a lot of attention. The most important aspect of this service is to ensure that only the services performed are captured and billed at the right time.
This is probably the most labor-intensive activity in pharmacy billing, but the good news is that we can automate it. We will help you streamline the manual payment postings, automatically post the insurance payments, and also reduce the data entry time.

Our Pharmacy Billing Process
We believe in providing our clients with cost-effective and the best-in-class services. This is possible by making use of streamlined and systematic processes. Some of the key steps involved in our pharmacy billing process include -
Receive Mail Order
In the first step, we receive the mail order from the Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM) team via Opex or any other FTP/scanning tools. The team would negotiate the costs with the manufacturer for better discounts
Once the negotiations are done, our team of pharmacy billing experts will verify all the patient details such as name, address, SSN number, dependent information, etc. and the physician details such as name, NTI number, etc.
Data Conversion Entry
Each document is scanned, classified, and converted to a system-readable format from the original scanned format
Medication Refill Check
Once the data is converted, the medication refill status is checked which will help in understanding the required quantity of medication considering the duration of the prescription
Organizing Prescribed Medicines
In this step, we find the exact brand name of the prescribed medicines and suggest the generic names of the molecule, cutting down the costs even further
If the medicine prescribed is generic, then we go ahead and place the order in the client's software. A copy of the order will be sent to the insurance company and one to the patient. For emergency kits, the order is usually placed within 30 minutes of receipt
We have a dedicated team to keep a track of the consignment till it is delivered to the patient. The escalations are followed in cases where the delivery is delayed at the logistics end
Once we receive the check for payments, we update it into the billing management system and send our reminders for due dates of the payment. Apart from this we also provide AR follow-up and payment posting services if required
