“HCRG has saved clients millions of dollars in Bill Review expenses within the last 5 years.”
Complex Medical Bills are bills related to inpatient, outpatient, and services rendered in an ambulatory surgery center. These bills are high dollar bills with complex billing methods such as the use of DRG and/or APC. These bills require multiple levels of audit including clinical, technical and coding by specific experts.
A medical chart review may also be required to match medical services with billing.
Specialty bills are those bills that are high dollar and complex. They do not fall into the regular inpatient and outpatient category. These bills are reviewed utilizing manual methods in its entirety by experts. Each of these specialty bills has specific rules that cannot be automated.
• Transfer of cases from acute case to acute care.
• Transfer of case from acute care to rehabilitation, long term care or other specialty hospital.
• Inpatient rehabilitation hospital
• Psychiatric hospital admissions
• Long term care hospital admissions
• Skilled nursing facility admissions
Complex bill negotiation is an additional service that we provide for high dollar and complex bills. Once the bill is re-priced per fee schedule, we negotiate with the provider for further discount percentages.
Providers usually accept the re-priced bill amount most of the time. There are occasions when the providers dispute the amount and choose to go to court. As a bill review service provider we stand by our review and we are prepared to go to court to defend the bill review. We provide the services of an expert witness to complete this task.
