Electronic eligibility request and response: Much more than "Yes, the patient is eligible"


Meeting Description:

Why should your practice implement electronic eligibility verification now? New changes in the eligibility request and response transactions and operating rules may be beneficial for your practice. For example, your practice will now receive the patient’s portion of the financial responsibility, including co-payment, co-insurance and patient-specific remaining deductible. This information can help your practice estimate patient costs before treatment decisions are made, price claims, and collect patient deductibles and co-insurance before patients leave the office, rather than waiting weeks or months for the health insurer’s explanation of benefits (EOBs). Register for this webinar to learn how you can use electronic eligibility verification to provide point-of-care pricing to your patients. 

Access the AMA's electronic eligibility verification toolkit to learn more. This presentation will be recorded and archived on this webpage for on-demand viewing.
