The Invisible Insurance
Department of Defense (DoD) treatment facilities risk losing millions of dollars in unbilled medical costs because they lack information about other insurance carried by their patients. On an even larger scale, it’s been estimated that the Defense Health Agency (DHA) could save billions by avoiding payment of claims submitted under TRICARE for treatment that should be covered by other insurance agencies.
But the process of identifying exactly which organization to bill, and then getting them to actually pay, is extremely challenging.
While there are a large number of vendors who say they can help, most of them don’t have access to the proper databases. Many also lack the people, processes and technology to effectively follow up on claims, even if they are able to determine the correct payer.
To effectively pursue other insurance opportunities, you need a provider who can access more than just a few databases. You need a provider who can find insurance information for anybody likely to have third-party coverage.
