Pharmacy Receivables ReconciliationServices

Processing pharmacy claims

We receive and process claim files from pharmacies in multiple electronic formats. These are imported into a database after any pre-processing, if required.

Claim level reconciliation

Detailed claim-level matching is done by our Research Team using various fields and manual exception processing tools. Exception Reports list out specific claims that have been submitted to the Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) but have only been partially, or not paid. This knowledge allows our representatives or you to follow up with the payer.

RA Processing and reconciliation

When the remittance advice file is received, it is also imported into the system to enable matching with claims received earlier. Since payers use varying formats, business rules are applied to read each file correctly before import. If the Remittance Advice(RA) is received on paper, we do a Paper-to-electronic conversion. Checks are also entered into the PharmTracker system manually. We ensure that the data is reconciliation-ready.

Payer follow up

We talk to clients and the PBMs / Payers about mismatches, understand the cause for it, and are able to increase collections as well as reduce unapplied cash to below 1%.

Reporting & Business Intelligence

Standard reports are sent to clients plus custom reports can be viewed on our PharmTracker™ system for analysis.

Check - RA reconciliation

Business rules for reconciliation have been built into the system over the last 6 years to identify reimbursement discrepancies. However, all claims don't match with payments resulting in unapplied cash and open claims. Some claims are paid only partially or not paid at all and this amounts to 15 to 20 percent of the claims.

Document image management

We offer complete document storage and management services using our ImageCADE / TeleFiche technology.

Why is Claim level matching important?

If you can match each claim with its check, you are in a position to follow up with the payer, find the cause for denial, re-submit claim. It gives you the opportunity to recover the money.

Don't show unrealistic high receivables in your books. With compliance laws like Sarbanes Oxley and SSAE TYPE II, each company is required to report revenue accurately.
