The hospice billing services staff at Schuerman Business Consulting can confirm hospice eligibility, benefit period, episodes of care, and MSP for each patient for you. We can let you know if you need to obtain a Face to Face visit prior to admission, or if you need a clinical preauthorization from an insurance company. There is no need for you to struggle to interpret the eligibility reports.
Our hospice billing services staff can help whether you use a software system or not. If you are on manual charting, we can put processes in place to help you capture the required billing information needed to file your claim. In many cases we can even submit claims electronically when the payer requires. However, even if you are using a software system that will “submit” the billing for you, we can still be of major help to you. Talk to any person who has done billing and they’ll tell you the submission is the easy part. Many times there are sequencing issues with other hospices, or system quirks that will keep your claims from paying timely, and require manual intervention. Our staff thrives on getting your claims processed correctly the first time in order to improve your cash flow. We maintain accurate and detailed accounts receivable records for each patient in order work the claims efficiently with fewer delays in processing, and will provide you with a list of paid and outstanding claims, with the reason, each month. We can also provide you with your cash flow projections as claims are approved to pay.
