Not only is the typical membership card not proof that the patient is actually insured, but it does not contain the critical patient benefit information required to make important co-pay and referral decisions at the point of care.
Eligibility from HealthFusion® is feature-rich – and a simple way for your practice to accomplish electronic eligibility verification at the point of care.
In order to reduce rejected claims payers, providers and practice management consultants all agree that eligibility and benefit verification should be performed on every patient prior to every visit. Since health plan membership changes every day, verification must be performed by matching the member with the most current payer list or database. Historically, verification was impractical, time-consuming, and costly, since the process involved manually calling the health plan and usually waiting on hold for 15 to 20 minutes.
