Are You Checking Eligibility for Medicare?

Are you checking eligibility for Medicare? Studies show $3.00 can be saved in administrative costs per patient simply by checking eligibility electronically. Utilizing eligibility transactions for all payers provides insight into everything from co-pays and out-of-pocket amounts to deductibles and limits. This information can help reduce rejected claims and decrease administrative costs, while increasing efficiency and improving cash flow.

Eligibility and coverage information is available for over 4000 payers, including Medicare, through UHIN. Your UHIN membership includes access to the eligibility tool, through MYUHIN, a one-stop source for UHIN’s offerings.

UHIN’s Eligibility and Coverage connection can be an invaluable tool in helping you save time and money. The direct connection provides 24x7x365 access to thousands of payers including Medicare eligibility information. Medicare’s information includes entitlement and termination dates, Medicare Advantage plan information, Medicare secondary payer information, home health episode information, hospice benefit periods, and preventive benefit information.  Commercial payer information includes information on amounts met towards deductible and out of pocket maximums.
