Reduce claim denials, challenges and time-consuming appeals
For providers, medical necessity denials cost thousands to millions of dollars every year in write-offs, plus costly staff time researching and appealing denials and responding to patient concerns. For payers, the same is true on the other end of the claim management spectrum: Paying for medically unnecessary procedures and treatments – and time spent working on denial appeals – raises costs without improving outcomes. And of course, for the patient, there can be unnecessary copays and other out-of-pocket costs, not to mention a poor patient experience involving costs and moments of care they did not need.
ABN Assistant™ from Vālenz® Assurance delivers the prior authorization tools providers need to validate medical necessity, print Medicare-compliant ABNs with estimated cost, and stop over 90 percent of medical necessity denials by verifying necessity before care is delivered to the patient.
