Insurance Verification

Insurance Verification

Outsource Strategies International (OSI) provides insurance verification services to not only determine if a patient is eligible but to outline all coverage details for the requested health care service. Outsourcing this task to us allows healthcare providers to focus on patient care. Verifying health insurance coverage and benefits before the point of service helps physician practices avoid claim denials and delayed payments.

Our insurance verification specialists have experience working with government and commercial payers, and have extensive knowledge about different types of coverage and policies.
OSI can verify coverage for all major insurers in the country such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, AETNA, and GHI.
