1 EMDEON PATIENT ACCESS SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES Healthcare is complex. Getting paid shouldn t be. While we offer many solutions and services, they are all are designed to do just two things. Collect patient out-of-pocket expenses Optimize third-party payments As quickly, easily and economically, as possible. It s that simple. Simplifying the Business of Healthcare Patient Access Payable claims and patient payments start here.

2 Removing the barriers In a recent survey, revenue cycle professionals were polled 1 to indentify the top challenges faced by their organization. With the complexity of healthcare expanding due to regulatory changes, the movement to ICD-10, healthcare reform and new reimbursement models, let s just say, it wasn t a short list. While there were varying responses, most, if not all, of these problems could be boiled down to just two core issues. Tackling reduced reimbursements Getting patients to pay It seems that the common denominator is that these changes are making it harder for providers just to get paid. That s why we ve been rolling up our sleeves to help. While we offer many solutions and services, they are all designed to help you achieve two key objectives: Maximize your third-party reimbursements. And help you fully collect patient payments. It s that simple. So, how can you address these challenges in your revenue cycle, specifically patient access? It s a simple formula, really. 1. Verify patient information to create a solid foundation for a more payable claim 2. Find coverage for those who have too little or none at all 3. Estimate and collect the patient out-of-pocket expense for those with coverage Related to payment barriers, there is some good news. Patient access can be one of the most influential parts of your revenue cycle to address these challenges. What you do before claims are submitted can determine whether you get paid or not. Really. While you may not have complete control, you can substantially move the needle from uncompensated care to getting paid what you deserve by working smarter, not harder. Let s take a closer look at the types of solutions and services that can be used in patient access to set the stage for more payable claims and more patient payments Blinded research performed by Deyta. While healthcare is complex. Getting paid shouldn t be. Call us at 877.EMDEON.6 ( ).

3 Best Practice Patient Access Workflow Verify Find Collect 3

4 Step 1. Verify Eligibility and Patient Profile Starting down the right (revenue cycle) path. Before patient care, it s important to start laying the foundation for a payable claim. And, get the information you need to triage self-pay and insured patients financially. Similar to treating patients from a clinical perspective, helping them navigate the system financially requires collecting good information to make informed decisions all around. One of the first steps in patient access is verifying patient demographic and benefits information up-front. Why is this step so important? Well, it actually drives the rest of your revenue cycle workflow. Here s how: Verifying the patient s address and benefits information early and often is critical to start building the foundation for a payable claim and reduce your risk of it being denied later It also impacts if and how much you can collect from the patient before care since you need this to estimate out-of-pocket expenses For self-pay patients, it can help you understand where to start looking for coverage including charity care, state or county assistance, Medicaid or Medicare based on their financial profile It can help you understand which patients should be offered prompt pay discounts, enrolled in payment plans or potentially written off to bad debt by evaluating their estimated out-of-pocket expense and credit score There are more than 50,000 unique health plans 2 just within the commercial side of healthcare. How can you verify patient benefits accurately and quickly when each offers slightly different versions of benefits? 2. While healthcare is complex. Getting paid shouldn t be. Call us at 877.EMDEON.6 ( ).

5 Here s how Emdeon can help: Patient Attested Eligibility & Benefits Verification As a best practice, your eligibility can be scheduled to run in batch in advance of appointments and then automatically rerun to capture recent changes in coverage and return data from payers that were temporarily unavailable. Our cloud-based solutions also offer real-time eligibility verification that can be used during the Point-of-Service (POS) to validate collected information or for unscheduled patients. This information can be presented in a custom interface or Emdeon can simply provide back-end processing to send the information to your Patient Accounting System (PAS) or Hospital Information System (HIS). Address Validation In order to validate addresses for patient billing later down the road and prevent undeliverable mail, Emdeon can automate the process of verifying patient addresses too. Less returned mail, more patient payments. Patient Financial Profile For self-pay patients, Emdeon can help you easily identify which of these might be candidates for Medicaid, federal disability programs, hospital charity care accounts or accounts that could potentially be written-off. By providing a healthcare payment predictor score, estimated income, estimated household size and a Federal Poverty Level (FPL) percent, your staff can make informed decisions for appropriate action. Medicare Medical Necessity Evaluation To reduce write-offs caused by procedures deemed medically unnecessary by Medicare, Emdeon can identify those that may potentially be denied for reimbursement and automatically create the Medicare Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN). Features Eligibility and benefits verification performed in batch and real-time Web-based solution Interfaces with most HIS and PMS Automates address validation Creates a patient financial profile to assist staff in making informed decisions Evaluates Medicare medical necessity guidelines and ABN generation Identifies errors in registration records Generates reports Automates pre-authorizations Customizes work queues to fit your needs Benefits Lays a solid foundation for more payable claims and more patient payments Reduces bad debt and the risk of denied claims by providing access to the most Government and Commercial payer connections in the industry for benefits verification Reduces the risk of undeliverable patient statements by automating address validation Enhances staff efficiency with an intuitive workflow and prompts for appropriate financial triaging of patients Reduces the risk of denied Medicare claims Improves your ability to get paid on-site Increases cash flow Reduces the risk of denied claims due to errors 5

6 Step 2. Triage Self-Pay with Solutions and Services Find more coverage with low to no financial risk. So, how should you handle patients that originally present as self-pay? Did you know that some patients actually do have coverage, but simply don t offer that information at the time of registration? Also, how do you handle the truly uninsured? It s a double-edged sword to say that with healthcare reform there will be more options for the under and uninsured but that eligibility does not automatically equal enrollment. Right now, there are at least 4.5 million adults 3 in the U.S. that are eligible, but not enrolled in Medicaid. And that s before the Medicaid expansion driven by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In addition, with approximately 48 million Americans uninsured, there will be considerable opportunity for a large portion to find coverage using Health Insurance Exchanges (HIX). How are you addressing this revenue cycle uncertainty? The good news is there are solutions and services that can help. And, most are provided on a contingency fee basis so if there is no recovery opportunity, you pay nothing. Here s how Emdeon can help: Self-Pay Eligibility & Benefits Search Did you know that you might even be able to find coverage for self-pay and charity designated patients that don t provide information about existing benefits? Emdeon can automatically screen uninsured patients looking for undiscovered existing coverage from government funded and commercial payers. With advanced analytics, Emdeon isn t limited to self-attested information from patients. It leverages Emdeon s unique access to Big Data within the nation s largest healthcare revenue and payment cycle network to help you find previously undiscovered coverage. Eligibility & Enrollment Services If coverage still isn t found after running an automated search to ping Emdeon s expansive network, your self-pay patients can be referred to on-site professionals to walk them through the entire application process for federal, state and local benefits programs. Chamberlin Edmonds, an Emdeon company, acts as your patients advocate by helping patients complete the necessary applications and provide follow-up services. As advocates for self-pay and indigent patients, Chamberlin Edmonds works efficiently to help recover cash that would otherwise be lost to your hospital. With new regulations, processes and complexities in qualifying patients for Medicaid and commercial health insurance, hospitals are facing challenges in maximizing their financial opportunity. Chamberlin Edmonds, one of America s leading patient eligibility and enrollment firms, is offering an ACA specific solution designed to drive results and target your unique challenges. Since 1986, Chamberlin Edmonds experts have been providing eligibility determination services for all types of programs, including the most difficult and complex federal disability cases. Regardless of the program, state or federal, Chamberlin Edmonds has the expertise to track every application through a maze of regulations, assuring a high rate of successful outcomes. State-of-the-art workflow technology enables the collecting and processing of eligibility information faster and more accurately than ever before. 3. While healthcare is complex. Getting paid shouldn t be. Call us at 877.EMDEON.6 ( ).

7 Chamberlin Edmonds is approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to be a multi-state Certified Application Counselor Designated Organization (referred to by CMS as a CDO). This designation provides Chamberlin Edmonds with the prerequisite organizational status to facilitate Certified Application Counselor training for Chamberlin Edmonds staff in all states.

8 Step 3. Collect Patient Receivables at POS Patient billing was your focus. Now, it s all about collecting early. According to a recent survey, patients are now responsible for over two thousand dollars in out-of-pocket expenses per visit on average. 4 What does that mean for you? Since your chances of collecting diminish after care is rendered, you should really be focusing on providing an accurate estimate and collecting that up-front. Then use an integrated strategy to automate the back-end billing, payment acceptance and payment posting processes. This is becoming more important with the rise in High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP). With 44 percent of employers 5 reporting they will likely only offer high deductible health plans in 2014, the trend is likely to continue. If patient receivables now account for roughly 20 percent of hospitals revenue cycles BUT only 10 on the dollar is collected at the time of service, 6 what are you doing to fix that?

Call us at 877.EMDEON.6 ( ).

9 Here s how Emdeon can help: Patient Responsibility Estimation As a best practice, Emdeon can begin the process of creating an estimate of the patient s out-of-pocket expenses before care is provided. How does this work? Well, first eligibility is processed and the procedure is cross-referenced in the Medical Code Finder database to produce the estimated amount due. At this point, the staff selects the patient s insurance plan, determines whether the patient is in or out of network and the specific service category for that procedure. To create the final patient estimation, the user simply selects Next to review the Calculation Detail which is helpful in explaining the estimate to patients. Our solution leverages a combination of provider contract information, fee schedules and current benefit and accumulator information to identify the patient s financial responsibility. The estimation can also be provided in real-time during scheduling, registration or check-out. Physical and Electronic Payment Collection Online and at the POS Emdeon can help with up-front collections and improve your POS workflow with real-time processing of various payment methods such as credit cards, check cards, echecks and ACH transactions in addition to physical payments such as cash, checks and money orders. Your staff will not only be able to collect owed amounts earlier in the revenue cycle, but they will also have the ability to manage and analyze all payments received from patients through available dashboard tools and reporting. Automatic posting of each day s payment activity directly into host financial systems is also provided. This saves time by eliminating the need for manual posting and reconciliation processes. Features Generates an estimate of patient financial responsibility Processes and accepts most forms of electronic payments (credit card, check card and echeck) and physical payments (cash, check and money order) Offers a comprehensive cash management system through standard and custom reporting and analytics Benefits Decreases A/R days and bad debt by collecting early Reduces back-end patient billing expenses Increases staff efficiency Increases up-front patient collections to accelerate the payment cycle 9
