ITASCA, IL (September 19, 2016) – LaunchPoint division Discovery Health Partners, a provider of payment integrity and population risk management solutions for healthcare payers, is named a top 100 finalist in the Chicago Innovation Awards. Chosen out of a record-breaking 643 entries, Discovery Health Partners’ Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) Validation solution is honored for its work helping Medicare Advantage plans recoup millions of dollars to their bottom lines by ensuring member healthcare premiums paid by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are accurate.

“Our solutions bring revenue protection to our clients. By studying the problem, identifying roadblocks in the process, and redesigning the process to address those challenges, we have achieved near perfect success at restoring underpaid premiums on behalf of our clients,” said Paul Vosters, president, Discovery Health Partners. “We saved one major healthcare plan $32 million within a three-to-six month period by restoring underpaid premiums.”
With a core team of experts in healthcare payer payment integrity, Discovery Health Partners developed a set of software solutions that reside on its proprietary Healthcare Analytics Platform. The MSP Validation solution is often delivered as an outsourced business process with Discovery experts managing the entire process on behalf of the client. According to Vosters, this has led to a 99 percent success rate restoring premiums for clients.
