Before starting a treatment, providers need to know the insurance coverage of a patient by a carrier. Many providers have staff to find out the benefits of a patient.

Avoid annoying IVR systems and spending countless hours collecting information over the phone with our HIPAA Eligibility Checker. It has enabled providers to create electronic request in the 270 format and to receive and translate the 271 response.

Many payers and providers invested in image scanning system for their paper claims and often business processes rely on people being able to access the image of a submitted claim from an image store. With electronic claims this process breaks unless you use the HIPAA Eligibility Checker’s image file creation feature.
There are two image file formats to choose from, TIFF and PDF. The image of the claim as you see it on screen can be saved in those formats, including additional pages and detailed COB information. The PDF images are searchable and indexable, meaning there is some basic information of the claim saved in the file in meta data spaces that help with indexing and sorting the images.
You can even create entries in an Image index file or image index database table of every image and its relevant information, file name and location.
