We believe in providing our clients with cost-effective and the best-in-class services. This is possible by making use of streamlined and systematic processes. Some of the key steps involved in our pharmacy billing process include -
In the first step, we receive the mail order from the Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM) team via Opex or any other FTP/scanning tools. The team would negotiate costs with the manufacturer for better discounts
Once the negotiations are done, our team of pharmacy billing experts will verify all the patient details such as name, address, SSN number, dependent information, etc. and the physician details such as name, NTI number, etc.
Each document is scanned, classified, and converted to a system-readable format from the original scanned format
Once the data is converted, the medication refill status is checked which will help in understanding the required quantity of medication considering the duration of the prescription
In this step, we find the exact brand name of the prescribed medicines and suggest the generic names of the molecule, cutting down the costs even further
If the medicine prescribed is generic, then we go ahead and place the order in the client's software. A copy of the order will be sent to the insurance company and one to the patient. For emergency kits, the order is usually placed within 30 minutes of receipt
We have a dedicated team to keep a track of the consignment till it is delivered to the patient. The escalations are followed in cases where the delivery is delayed at the logistics end
Once we receive the check for payments, we update it into the billing management system and send our reminders for due dates of the payment. Apart from this we also provide AR follow-up and payment posting services if required
