Week 3 Discussion:
An error in a form can delay payment to a healthcare provider, so it is important to submit a “clean” orerror-free claim to the appropriate payer. In your healthcare education you have learned about a variety of public and private payers like Medicare, CHAMPVA, and Blue-Cross/Blue Shield, among others. Each has its own requirements for information required for billing to be provided in a claims form.
To Prepare for the Assignment:
- Read Chapters 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12 in Medical Insurance, an Integrated Claims Process Approach
With these thoughts in mind:
Post your primary response to DQ1 by Day 3: Choose two payers (e.g. Blue Cross/Blue Shield & Medicaid). Compare and contrast the requirements and differences in the fields required for these two payers. Finally, what 2-3 items would you double check to ensure you have a “clean claim” prior to submitting for the reimbursement?
