Verification & Prior Authorization

Benefits of working with FC Billing

Which Services Require Prior-Authorization

Each insurance plan is unique in its requirement for service coverage. Unless the practice is absolutely certain that authorization is not required, such as traditional Medicare, billers should confirm with insurance for all high-value services. Common services which might require Prior-Authorization are:

  • Medication/Drug
  • In-Office surgery/procedure
  • Outpatient surgery center or hospital Services
  • Physical or Mental therapy
  • Health plans which allow limited number of medical visits per year or have frequency limits for tests and procedures
  • HMO, POS, Medicaid, and other approval based plans
  • Out of network services

Insurance verification ensures accurate billing and minimizes claim rejections, leading to improved revenue and operational efficiency.

We typically require patients’ insurance details, including policy numbers, group numbers, and primary insured information, along with personal details such as name, date of birth, and contact information.

We utilize various channels, including clearinghouses, insurance portals, and direct communication with insurers, to verify coverage details such as co-pays, deductibles, and prior authorization requirements.

Without verified insurance coverage, there’s a risk of claim denials and delayed reimbursements. Patients may also be billed incorrectly, leading to dissatisfaction and potential financial issues.

In case of denial, we work closely with the insurer to understand the reason for denial and appeal if necessary. We also explore alternative options to ensure patients receive the necessary care.

Our team proactively addresses any issues or discrepancies during the verification process, seeking clarification from insurers when needed. We keep clients informed and provide solutions to resolve issues promptly.
