IMS is designed to streamline and automate the billing, authorization and referral processes by tracking every patient encounter to make sure it is pre-validated. Un-billable encounters are avoided.
An integrated reminder notifies front office staff to verify authorizations before a patient is seen by a doctor. The online healthcare portal also reminds patients to obtain all necessary authorization or referral information before coming in for a visit. IMS also has automatic fax and letter writing features that make it easy to send standard faxes to insurance companies for authorizations.
Healthcare providers can be auto-reminded to request authorizations and referrals after entering specific CPTs during an exam. IMS includes built-in insurance-approved authorization forms.
Authorization verification is provided at check-in and before posting charges so that medical practices can ensure insurance reimbursements. IMS includes customization options that let you set authorization requirements by procedure and insurance.
