A large acute care hospital, a pediatric hospital and a small community hospital within a well-known national health system were all struggling with a loss of revenue due to an underperforming Medicaid eligibility vendor.
We deployed a team to establish relationships with local Medicaid agencies, created new processes, trained new patient advisors and coordinated departments.
A 53% increase in paid Medicaid accounts and more than one-third improvement in patient screening days.
Screenings are conducted on all potentially eligible individuals, with a strong focus on connecting with patients on-site to maximize results. We evaluate eligibility, based on state guidelines and a five-step sequential evaluation used by the Office of Hearings and Appeals. Advanced technology and analytics enable staff to focus time interacting with patients with the highest likelihood of certifications.
We gather all supporting documentation for each case, follow up with appropriate government offices and ensure that each application or appeal for government assistance is supported by medical evidence and professionally generated correspondence. We work closely with the hospital staff to ensure all relevant information is incorporated in case development.
