Steps to Billing Success
Benchmark Systems has patient check-in automation which allows scanning of information straight into the computer system. Get our automated PM software, which comes with a 95% accuracy level, to make sure human error is not a problem from the start.
The first step is scanning the patient’s insurance card into the system. This safeguards against transposing incorrect numbers and letters from the member ID and policyholder information.
The next step is to note the relationship field. If the patient is the spouse, child, or self, this affects how the claim is processed. For example, is the patients is listed as ‘self’ and they policy holder is the parent, a claim for an eight-year-old child will be denied for a well visit as age appropriate.
Another important step for billing success is noting the subscriber information. The subscriber could be the patient, the parent or spouse. Incorrect subscriber name or gender will result in a claim rejection or denial, thus slowing down the payment process.
A huge overall problem to look out for is the issue of transposing letters and numbers. Many claims are denied based on inaccurate subscriber numbers or group numbers. But this is easily remedied by double checking patient demographics.
Following a few simple steps will result in prompt and correct insurance payments, thus eliminating the need to submit corrected claims.
