REQUESTING REPROCESSING WHEN REFERRING DOCTOR IS IN-NETWORK
*This is what each Payer calls this process*
Aetna calls it "Par-ology"
Americhoice calls it "RAPS"
Cigna calls it "Enhanced"
Coventry calls it "Lab Leakage"
Evercare calls it "Enhanced"
Presbyterian calls it "No voice/No choice"
MBSL staff realizes the importance of insurance follow up. It is this step that helps keep your insurance A/R in check.
We make every effort to follow up on unpaid claims every 30 days after submission. Our staff is comfortable utilizing every
available tool to check claim status (phone, online payer website, Availity, etc.). Knowing when to request a claim be sent
for reprocessing. Example: If a claim is denied for OON (out of network and your office is not in-network for that payer, but
the referring physician is in-network. Numerous policies allow certain provider claims to be processed in network, even when
they are out of network, if the referring doctor is in-network and they have a claim on file that paid in-network. Situations
like this one can be a big boost to your revenue.
- » Patient website bill payment
Many clearing houses offer your patients the ability to make a payment directly on their website. The clearing house then notifies
your office of any payments received. This is a HUGE convenience in the "online bill pay" period we live in.
Everyone is busy and wants to save money (stamps and paper checks) and time. MBSL can help you choose a clearinghouse that offers
this service and much, much more. Give MBSL a call and let us help you...and your patients.
- » Customized reports
Our clients have been extremely pleased with the information we can supply through such reports.
Most systems offer a variety of reporting options (some are more detailed than others). This helps us keep a close eye on:
- * the Aging A/R (patient and insurance)
- * Carrier Reimbursement reports (knowing who is paying you the quickest or slowest)
- * Provider specific reports (such as productivity reports)
These are a few of the customized reports MBSL is accustomed to supplying our clients. We can also, if the system allows,
run demographic reports. These are extremely helpful in your marketing strategies.

- » Lockbox services
MBSL staff is familiar with the lockbox process. A lockbox is a designated P O Box that all mailed payments
(patient and insurance) is mailed to. This box number is set up to go directly to YOUR bank. Your bank will set
your lockbox up for you. Even though some processes vary, generally speaking most of them work in the same general manner.
Your payments go to YOUR bank. All incoming documents are scanned and all monies immediately deposited into YOUR account.
The bank, via email, notifies you of that daily deposit. Your bank also emails a copy of the scanned items (remits and checks)
to a designated staff member. This is usually the staff member who will post any incoming payments.
This is a huge time saving step PLUS, your money is in the bank several days ahead of the normal "payment in the mail" method.
- » Clean up projects
MBSL has been involved in many "clean up or A/R recovery" projects. Unfortunately, in the day and age we are in,
we have more offices closing their doors due to financial or reimbursement issues. MBSL knows the importance of getting
this process done as quickly as possible. Making calls, online inquires, appeals and resubmitting claims (when necessary)
is only part of reducing the A/R until any balances remaining are ready for collections.
