VERIFICATION OF BENEFITS

We know that many patients seeking assistance with substance abuse or mental health issues might need immediate assistance -- there's often no time to delay. We also understand taking on a patient without verifying their benefits is a big risk to your practice. Because we understand these issues, we do our best to complete verification of benefits within 30 minutes, which allows you to act quickly and get help for your patients faster.


Acquiring a detailed, accurate verification of insurance benefits for an individual, requires knowledgeable and experienced professionals that understand and stay current with the array of insurance payers. We're here to help.

Elements of a verification of benefits include:

Eligibility

Covered benefits

Deductibles

Out-of-Pocket Amounts

Coinsurance

Copays

Limitations

Restrictions and provisions

Pre-Authorization requirements and contact information

PRE-AUTHORIZATIONS

We work with you to establish a system that improves authorization approvals and minimize surprises when you intake a patient. Every pre-authorization generates a Number of Days Authorized (NDA) indicating the authorization outcome with any limitations, requirements, instructions and other detailed information.  We pride ourselves on effective communication with our partners.

COLLECTIONS & APPEALS

Medical billing companies often focus only on claims that are relatively easy to collect. Illuminate Billing specializes in chasing and collecting difficult, outstanding claims. We recognize that 1) avoiding collecting difficult claims sets a precedent with the insurance company and likely leads to lower future reimbursements; and 2) every penny counts for your practice. Frankly, our efforts to collect these claims are not very profitable for us, but we understand our efforts may lead to a 10%+ increase in revenue for you....so that makes it worth it for us to get you paid!
