RelayClearance Authorization Surpasses 200 Payers
Pre-authorization solution now leads the industry in payer connections & payer-specific pre-authorization policies
ALPHARETTA, GA – May 31, 2016 — Today RelayHealth Financial announced that its RelayClearance™ Authorization solution, part of the RelayClearance Plus patient access suite, now connects to 203 commercial, managed care, and government health plans covering nearly 80% of covered lives in the US. Now even more healthcare providers can take advantage of RelayClearance Authorization’s 318,000 payer-specific authorization policy screening rules to help streamline the pre-authorization verification process and reduce the associated time and cost.
To avoid claim denials, it is critical for providers to confirm that payer-specific pre-authorization and payment policies are met for procedures prior to service. RelayHealth Financial’s pre-authorization verification eliminates the manual processes, including time-consuming phone calls and searches of health plan portals, to determine both whether an authorization is required and if it has been obtained.
“Despite living in a digital world, healthcare pre-authorization remains a stunningly manual and costly process, consuming staff time and often delaying care,” said Janet Cutcliff, vice president and general manager, RelayHealth Financial Patient Access Solutions. “We’re committed to reversing that paradigm, which is why we continue to invest in building pervasive payer connectivity into our RelayClearance patient access suite. We’re committed to taking the cost, time, and pain out of pre-authorization for providers.”
RelayClearance Authorization enables providers to confirm that payer pre-authorization and admission notification policies, along with Medicare Medical Necessity and Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) processes, are readily available and consistently addressed. RelayClearance Authorization continually monitors payer authorization rules and request statuses while tightly integrating into the EHR workflow to ensure consistent implementation of authorization requirements.
