Medical Eligibility & Benefit Verification
What is Medical Eligibility Verification?
Medical Eligibility Verification is the process Physicians follow to verify a patient’s benefits and ensure they receive payment for the services or treatments provided.
Having a timely eligibility verification system can save your practice time, cut costs, and help you receive patient payments faster.
Medical eligibility verification is the first step in the revenue cycle management process and can determine whether your claim is submitted successfully or will be denied or take excess time.
