Insurance authorization is a process that begins immediately after a particular patient has been scheduled to undergo a medical procedure. It involves getting in touch with the insurance carrier and getting an assurance that this carrier would indeed pay for the procedure the patient plans to undergo. Research has proven that in 75 cases out of a hundred, the reason for a claim denial is the patient not being eligible for services that have been billed by the service provider. The authorization process is a tedious one and best handled by experts to avoid errors and reduce the chances of claim rejections.
