Our Systematic Cycle of Processing

Patient enrollment: We collect the necessary documents from your practice and enter the patient’s demographic particulars such as name, date of birth, address, sex and other details into the system.

Insurance verification and authorization: We check for patient coverage benefits to make sure of eligibility.

Audit and claim submission: Our charge team generates a charge based on the rules of particular carriers and locations. Our audit team checks for the accuracy of claims based on carrier needs.

Payment posting: We apply the payments into the software against the correct patient account. Over/ low payments are noted and the required refund requests or appeals are created and forwarded to analysts for additional action.
