The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed BESLER Consulting’s Transfer DRG Revenue Recovery Service using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, the Transfer DRG Revenue Recovery Service has been awarded the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation.
Under Medicare reimbursement regulations, when certain patients are discharged to post-acute care, the discharging hospital is paid at a reduced rate. In some cases, this reduced payment is not justified by the actual post-discharge care. These underpayments are not reflective of coding or billing errors on the part of the provider, but more commonly result from a change in the planned course of treatment subsequent to discharge.
BESLER employs proprietary software to efficiently work through the identification and follow-up tasks required to validate the accuracy of post-acute care transfer billing and to ensure compliance. BESLER also offers the BVerified(SM) suite of web-based solutions, which allows providers to bring the work of identifying, prioritizing and recovering Medicare underpayments in-house.
“We’re very proud of the fact that our Transfer DRG Revenue Recovery Service has received the HFMA Peer Reviewed designation,” said Jonathan Besler, President and CEO of BESLER Consulting. “The results of the customer survey – an integral part of the very thorough Peer Review process – confirm the value that our clients see in the service. Our revenue cycle experts have continuously enhanced our service while keeping the focus squarely on compliance.”
