Clearance Authorization

A pre-service authorization and medical necessity solution for healthcare providers that want to automate authorization workflows, reduce denials and bad debt risk, and increase efficiency.


HelpAccelerate Prior Authorization

  • Automate manual processes by determining if a pre-authorization is required and on file with the payer.
  • Electronically submit prior authorization requests for integrated payers to optimize staff efficiency.
  • Help reduce losses due to write-offs by automating Medical Necessity checking as part of registration, and perform clinical code auditing for Medicare outpatient services.
  • Monitor payers electronically for pending pre-authorization decisions with results automatically posted to your health information system.
  • Help reduce authorization-related claim denials by accessing an audit trail where the authorization verification was obtained and results were stored.
  • Create Advanced Beneficiary Notices with expected charges for the patient which allows them to accept liability prior to care delivery.

Automated Payer Screening and Verification

  • Streamline prior authorization workflow

    • Initiate the authorization process by receiving electronic messages from the scheduling platform to alert your team if work is required before the account reaches pre-registration.
    • Utilize multiple payer access strategies to make sure all services are reliably screened and verified against each payer’s pre-authorization requirements.
    • Submit Notices of Admission electronically to 278 and portal payers in real time.
    • Initiate automated prior authorization request directly to integrated payers.
  • Verify medical necessity and clinical codes

    • Confirm within the financial clearance workflow if an Advance Beneficiary Notice is required.
    • Check clinical codes in real time against Medicare rules, and trigger medical necessity checks for Medicare Advantage plans using plan code-based rules.
    • Confirm ongoing compliance with the latest audit rules by leveraging regularly updated Local and National Coverage Determination content services to support comprehensive Medicare compliance.
