Factors to Consider When Picking Up the Health Claims Clearinghouse.
The clearinghouse crosschecks the claims that the medical clinic has sent them such that they find the errors and correct them before they forward the claims electronically to the payer. For the errors to be noticed and corrected then certain software has to used. The payer can consent or reject that claim. If the payer has accepted to your plea, then you wait for the payment, and if rejected then you do the necessary changes to make it approved.
The billing company should have a solid customer support. It should deal with your claim faster and clear the mistakes. It will help to reach the payer faster if they are fast enough. The payment can be delayed, if the clearinghouse you hired acts slowly to their deeds which means your data will be handled late. The customer care should be on always such that in case you want to send a request, then they will get back to you within the following few hours. If you stay more than 24hours without a reply, then that firm is not the right for you.
It should take at most
one hour for the firm to handle your claims. It means that if you send any claim they should respond to create awareness of how many and which claims were sent to the payer. The clearing houses which respond to you they help you to resubmit the file which you have made some changes and wait for the cash to flow.
They should send the payment and the 835s consistently and be accountable for it. The reconciliation of your cash will be done in a timely manner, if you receive the files consistently. It will help you to save time since whenever you get the forms at the expected time then doing reconciliation about your cash flow will be at the immediate time and forget about it thus you will not have to keep on tracking which month is the form supposed to help in reconciliation. When selecting the clearing houses, you should consider when they send their 835s compared to the time the payment is received since most send it later.
The provided claim information should be efficient. The process means that your staff will be able to make the necessary changes without having to do duplication of the files for them to access. The changes are made faster since the data information is available to all staff.
You should select an easy clearinghouse since the complex ones need a deep training to understand how it works and you will be forced to provide that training. Since easy firms you don’t have to offers comprehensive training it will save time and money.
