SCHEDULING, ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION AND PRE-AUTHORIZATION
An efficient revenue cycle management begins with the implementation of best process practices from day one. Most insurances require pre‐authorizations for you to get paid for your services. Having access to the most up‐to‐date eligibility and benefits data, De Lune Health helps increase clean claims rates, eliminates costly rework, accelerates reimbursement that increases time‐of‐service collections, minimizes bad debt, and boosts patient satisfaction. These processes take the guesswork out of whether services are covered or being denied because the “Procedure requires referral or authorization.” Many denials can be eliminated by proper coverage verification, and by obtaining referral/authorization prior to providing the services.
CHARGE POSTING OR CHARGE VERIFICATIONS
Medical claims are generated by experienced billing associates, based on state carrier policies and billing guidelines. Once the charges are created, they are keyed in with appropriate procedure, diagnosis and specific payment modifiers (if applicable). Multiple quality checks are performed before the charges are transmitted to carriers (e.g. verifying patient name, ensuring appropriate pointers were picked for ICD‐10 codes based on LCD and NCD guidelines with concurrent CPT codes, and appropriate insurance being billed). EDI clearance is performed by our senior associates, who are diligent in identifying, fixing and eradicating the cause in future claims. Our main focus is to submit a 100% clean claim and ensure proper submission.
ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE MANAGEMENT
For healthcare providers and hospitals, the process of filing and following up on insurance claims is critical, especially in light of the trends of falling rates of reimbursement, increasing patient deductibles and rising operating costs. Accounts Receivable (AR) management is a dedicated process wherein unwanted account aging, escalating number of AR days and denials can be checked. De Lune Health is among the leading healthcare BPO companies, and we provide reliable and systematic Accounts Receivable Management outsourcing services which includes claims examination, prioritization based on the age of the claim, and periodic follow‐ups over phone (with email and/or online follow‐ups to update the status of each claim submitted to the insurance company), helping healthcare providers to shorten their revenue cycle and improve cash flow.
DENIAL MANAGEMENT AND DENIAL TRENDING ANALYSIS
Rebilling is an expensive endeavor and, we believe that denials should be prevented, even before they occur. De Lune Health denials analytics management’s primary goal is to help providers achieve nearly 100% of first‐pass claim payment, and eliminate denials. De Lune Health denials analytics solution analyzes your electronic remittances and categorizes denied charges into relevant groups, creating actionable work queues. Combined with our expert analysis, we identify the root cause of denials, set up a process improvement to prevent future denials, and track results.
While many administrators look at coding and clinical documentation as the key anchors for effective medical billing and consider payment posting to be just the process of posting payments, a good payment processing team can provide critical insights into the overall effectiveness of your revenue cycle processes. Remittance processing professionals not only process payments but provide you trends and understanding on reasons for denials, pre‐authorization, non‐covered services, quality of your clinical documentation and coding processes, and effectiveness of your front‐end patient collections. We process the following types of remittance transactions with an exceptional degree of accuracy and timeliness.
- Electronic Remittance Advisory (ERA) Posting
- Manual Payment Posting
- Denial Posting
- Patient Payment Posting
CREDIT BALANCE RESOLUTIONS
Credit balances are simply a part of everyday life in the delivery of healthcare services. Unresolved credit balance accounts can distort the profitability of a healthcare facility and foster financial risks. Researching and correcting posting errors, duplicate payments, overpayments, and misapplied credits are not only time consuming, but expensive. However, failure to address these credit balances in a timely manner may result in missed billing opportunities, and when associated with government payers, may also bring compliance risks and penalties. Following are 10 best practices followed by De Lune Health to help you with your credit balance resolutions:
