Have you ever considered outsourcing your Pre-Authorizations?  Outsourcing your Pre-Authorizations would benefit your office tremendously!  The insurance verification and pre-authorization process is essential to every practice’s bottom line. Outlining the patient benefits and coverage for specific medical procedures before the service is the most important step to ensure a successful practice. Pre-authorization or prior approval is necessary to acquire reimbursement for many non-urgent medical procedures and services. Failing to obtain this information could subject your practice to delayed payments, the need for claim rework and resubmission, errors, nonpayment and more. Burks Medical Consulting, LLC can help you verify whether or not a particular medical procedure is covered as well as obtain prior approval from payers when necessary. This will ensure timely and appropriate reimbursement.  By ensuring that all scans have Prior Authorizations, we are confident that we can increase your revenue and free up your office staff to concentrate on the patients!

Benefits for Hospitals

For hospital clients, BMC manages the difficult and costly work associated with coordinating care among the hospital, payers and patients. This new service delivers more control and cuts down on busywork by eliminating unnecessary redundancies.  BMC handles cumbersome tasks on behalf of clients, creating workflow efficiencies and freeing up staff time and resources.  Hospitals see:

  • More revenue from reduced denials, higher procedure volume and increased up-front (or Point-of-Service) collection of self-pay balances.
  • Faster revenue from fewer delays in payment, elimination of lost orders and pre-appointment patient collections
  • Greater control and reduced workload
  • Improved patient satisfaction due to a streamlined Prior Authorization process

Benefits for Practices

With this service, physician practices can spend less time managing outbound orders, obtaining pre-authorizations  and following up with clinical documentation. They also get much better visibility on the status of the patients they have sent to the receiving facility. Spending less time on these tasks frees-up providers to focus their efforts on patient care.

BMC comprises a key service component:

Pre-certification — A dedicated team of specialists with clinical and payer knowledge verifies eligibility and benefits. They also obtain the required insurance pre-certifications to ensure claims get paid the first time.

PRIOR AUTHORIZATION PROCESS

BMC Prior Authorization Services (Pre-certifications)

“Let our experienced Prior Authorization Coordinators manage the

The prior authorization process can cause more frustration among physician offices & facilities than any other

administrative  process.

 

BMC Prior Authorization Services, or pre-cert services, facilitates the pre-certification process between healthcare

providers and their payers.  Typically, prior authorization services are required for radiology exams, outpatient surgery, inpatient surgery, hospital admissions, sleep studies, injections, ultrasounds, echocardiograms, nuclear medicine exams or any procedure that requires a pre-certification.  The function of BMC’s pre-cert portal is to collect patient information from medical providers to obtain prior authorization for those type of studies and/or procedures.
