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. Accepting or rejecting the claim is the results of the payer. Whenever the claim has been approved, then it means that the payment is on the way while being denied means that you have to make changes in order the payer to accept it.
The billing company should have a solid customer support. Handling your claim and as well clear some errors should be their quality. It will help to reach the payer faster if they are fast enough. If the company will handle your claim very late due to its slowness in their work, then your payment has to be delayed. The clearinghouse should provide an all-time customer service, which means that whenever someone sends a request then they receive the response the soonest time possible. 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. To know the claims that passed, then the company should give you the feedback. 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.
The 835s and payment forms should be sent consistently to the claimer, and they should 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 information of the claim provided by the firm should be effective. 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.
The clearinghouse you select should be easy to use since if you choose the complex one, you will have to be providing comprehensive training. Time and finances will be saved since you will not take time training the workers on how to use the clearinghouse.
