IVANS Helps Mobile X-Ray Imaging Inc. Reduce Its Costs for Uncompensated Care

Electronic Eligibility Solution Reduces Medicare Claims Denials by 50% and IVANS LIME Is Ten Times Faster than Dial-Up.

Stamford, CT (Vocus) February 18, 2009 -- IVANS, the leading provider of corporate connectivity solutions and services, announced that its Real-Time Medicare Eligibility Verification solution has helped Mobile X-Ray Imaging Inc. significantly reduce its costs for uncompensated care by cutting Medicare claims denial rates by 50%. In addition, the facility electronically verifies Medicare coverage ten times faster using IVANS secure, high-speed Internet access called IVANS LIME™, thereby dramatically accelerating its claims workflow process.

By using IVANS solution, Mobile X-Ray Imaging confirms that patient services are approved by Medicare at the time of a visit, reducing denials and ensuring that the facility bills the right payer with accurate claims information. Krystell Maynard, director of finance and human resources at Mobile X-Ray Imaging Inc., said, “Verifying Medicare eligibility for patients over the phone is a time-consuming task for our staff and makes it almost impossible to confirm eligibility at the time of service. A great portion of our business depends on Medicare, so being able to verify electronically is critical. Because of IVANS Medicare eligibility software, we have seen our denial rates cut in half and our staff finds the technology to be ten times faster than using alternative methods such as an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system.”

Located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Mobile X-Ray Imaging provides care to more than 36,000 patients every year. According to Maynard, they have been so pleased with the speed and accuracy of performing Medicare eligibility checks directly from their computers, they recently added claims inquiries to IVANS LIME to further streamline efficiencies and accelerate the payment cycle.

“Medicare is a major source of revenue for many healthcare providers, so finding ways to increase cash flow while lowering their exposure to uncompensated care is a major priority for the provider community,” explained Tara Mondock, group vice president of healthcare sales at IVANS, Inc. “We expect to continue seeing substantial increases in the number of providers signing up for our real-time eligibility software and high-speed access to Medicare, as they try to balance patient care while reducing risk and preserving cash.”
