Claim Miner: Emerald's New Medicaid Finder Tool
Your front office staff probably works hard to verify the patient’s insurance at the time of service and may even assist self-pay patients with enrolling for Medicaid, but what happens after checkout? A time-consuming process of continually monitoring self-pay visits for eligibility begins. This daunting manual task results in many billable opportunities going unnoticed and written off as bad debt or timely filing adjustments. We're finding that rising Medicaid shortfalls create financial challenges for health centers.
Emerald's Claim Miner service identifies new Medicaid eligible encounters hiding in your self-pay and sliding fee buckets then, returns missing or incorrect Medicaid information needed to your billing team.
