BESLER Consulting, a leading provider of comprehensive revenue recovery services to healthcare organizations, is pleased to announce that Georgia Regents Medical Center has selected the company’s BVerifiedSM – Transfer DRG software solution to assist in the recovery of Transfer DRG underpayments.
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. The BESLER BVerifiedSM – Transfer DRG tool identifies potential underpayments and its built-in workflow capabilities will allow Georgia Regents Medical Center to make a final, compliant determination.
“We are very pleased to partner with Georgia Regents Medical Center” commented Jonathan Besler, BESLER’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The medical center will be able to manage the entire Transfer DRG reimbursement process internally to improve their process while significantly saving on vendor cost.”
The BVerifiedSM – Transfer DRG web-based solution automates the tedious identification and follow-up process required to validate the accuracy of post-acute care transfers. The required review of the Medicare Common Working File is completely automated. A flexible workflow tool guides the provider through the remaining follow-up tasks and ensures that final discharge status determinations are made in a fully compliant manner. The complete line of BVerifiedSM software solutions can be found at www.besler.com/bverified.htm.
Georgia Regents Medical Center will be using the BVerifiedSM – Transfer DRG web-based solution to immediately identify DRG claims that have definitely or potentially been underpaid. BESLER consultants will be used in the solution’s workflow process as a workload balance and can be assigned claims that require some degree of follow-up. BESLER provides this consulting resource as a hybrid model alongside the BVerifiedSM – Transfer DRG automated solution.
