Health plans take a fresh look at payment integrity process, performance, and management
ITASCA, IL (May 11, 2017) –Discovery Health Partners, a provider of payment and revenue integrity solutions for healthcare payers, will host a webinar May 18, 2017, at 12:30 p.m. CST to examine top trends in healthcare payment integrity and how they are impacting the way health plans manage the function. Titled, “Top 8 trends in payment integrity—2017,” the webinar highlights observations of the last year gleaned through hundreds of encounters with health plans by Discovery President Paul Vosters, and David Grice, VP of Strategic Account Development, and others within the Discovery team.
“Increased interest in protecting the bottom line is clearly driving increased interest in payment integrity,” notes Vosters. “We see payers exploring prepayment review as a cost avoidance strategy, questioning the performance of their payment integrity function, and rethinking their insourcing/outsourcing strategies.” Vosters and Grice both report that payment integrity has captured the attention of the C-suite based on its ability to impact plan performance. These and other trends will be explored in the webinar.
Payment integrity is defined as the accuracy of the transaction that occurs between payer and provider. Payment integrity ensures that claims are paid correctly—by the responsible party, for eligible members, according to contractual terms, not in error, and free of wasteful or abusive practices. In our complex and dynamic healthcare environment, realizing good payment integrity is a challenge for both payers and providers.
Seats remain available for this event, hosted by Healthcare Education Associates and open to all members of RISE. Nonmembers may participate for a fee. To register, visit Webinar Registration here.
