Prior Authorization Services
Pre-approval of medical services began as a benefit to patients to ensure their procedure would be covered. This is important because, especially in the case of optional procedures, this would determine if the patient actually wants to undergo a procedure. In the past, patients would have a medical treatment done and then be hit with a huge medical bill because their insurance didn’t pay. This resulted in financial hardships for many and for some even bankruptcy.
Revivify Revenue Cycle, one of the top medical billing companies, understands the importance of obtaining prior authorization before undertaking medical treatments. We also understand that while this service is beneficial to the patient, it’s time-consuming on the practitioner’s part. Valuable time is spent on the phone and writing up documentation that could be spent on immediate patient care. Hence, we offer prior authorization services to help healthcare practitioners.
Prior authorization services is not just for medical procedures; it’s also heavily utilized in the prescription drug realm as well. This process especially is lengthy. If your doctor prescribes a drug that requires prior authorization. The physician will have to work with the patient’s insurance company to provide rationale for the medication. This does not guarantee that the insurance company will approve the physician’s request. If this is the case, usually a generic drug will be issued instead.
