The staff at ABCS helps practices and facilities optimize their medical revenue cycle. We understand the billing requirements for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs. For example, there is usually some level of confusion as to whether PHP and IOP treatments require a pre-authorization?

We realize that some patient insurance plans will require a healthcare practitioner to submit a prior authorization before providing any PHP or IOP to that patient. If details like this are overlooked, submitted claims are rejected and a facility’s cash flow is potentially squeezed.

Our skilled account managers know that prior authorizations are usually needed from the insurance payer. These prior authorizations usually approve the required date span and the total number of visits allowed for PHP or IOP treatments.

This means that if a patient needs three weeks of PHP for five days a week, a request should be submitted to their insurance company. The insurance provider will respond with an approval that specifically lists the approved timespan as well as the total number of days.

Managing the billing process and working through the complex maze of coding requirements and insurance industry red tape can unnecessarily drain resources away from your practice. ABCS handles all aspects of the billing process from start to finish which saves you time and money.
