Alpha II Offers Claim Scrubbing Trial for Providers Impacted by Change Healthcare Cybersecurity Event

The Change Healthcare cybersecurity event has impacted healthcare operations across the country. Alpha II joins the healthcare IT community who are offering services to assist providers experiencing disruptions in their revenue cycle. For a limited time, Alpha II is offering a free 30-day trial of ClaimStaker, our clinical claim scrubbing tool.

Healthcare providers affected by the Change Healthcare cybersecurity event find alternative methods of claim submission, such as manual input on a payer’s electronic portal or submitting paper claims. One of the issues with these submission methods is not being able to check for errors, which significantly increases the chance for rejections and denials. In this time of increased manual processes and limited resources, taking time to ensure you’re sending clean claims is crucial to your bottom line.

Let ClaimStaker add that step of proactive denial avoidance back to your revenue cycle. ClaimStaker goes beyond simple claim edits to focus on clinical usage and appropriateness of your data. For example, you can verify the appropriateness of modifiers, ensure all components of your injections are billed, verify medical necessity beyond payer policies, and so much more. We have an expansive library of professional, institutional, and claim edits that will help you save valuable staff time and reduce days in A/R by sending correct claims the first time.

While ClaimStaker is mostly integrated in EHRs and billing systems across the country, it also offers manual scrubbing capabilities. To take advantage of this offer, providers will need to have access to their 837P/I file from their billing system. As for our edits, users will be initially set-up with a configuration based on their specialty and given a brief training on how to use the client portal. The process is simple – once you register for the trial, complete your billing in your current system, then download/extract the 837 file. You will upload the file to ClaimStaker, then download the scrub report showing suggested corrections. Use the report to return to your billing system, make desired corrections, then proceed with desired claim submission.
