Insurance verification is an important element in the medical billing process. When insurance benefit verification is not done in a proper and timely manner, it often leads to problems such as delayed payments, denials, and patient dissatisfaction. Outsource Strategies International (OSI), a leading outsourcing company in the U.S, can provide fast and efficient insurance verification services to maximize the collections of clients. OSI offers its services to hospitals, outpatient clinics, multi-specialty physicians’ groups, as well as individual and group physician practices of all sizes.
By outsourcing insurance eligibility verification requirements to OSI, clients are assured many benefits, which include:
• More focus on core medical activities

As part of the services, OSI’s professional team verifies payable benefits, patient details, pre-authorization number, co-insurance details, deductibles, patient policy status, type of plan and coverage details, plan exclusions, claims mailing address, and other details. A representative of OSI says, "Before patients are admitted into a hospital, we confirm insurance coverage eligibility with the insurance provider. Our health insurance verification specialist works with patients, checks for policy changes and updates, completes the paperwork, and verifies patient information with the insurance carrier."
The verification procedures involve:
