Verify insurance eligibility prior to services rendered, estimate patient costs and identify hidden insurance coverage.

Patients don’t always present to the same urgent care center, nor do they present to these centers with any type of regularity. Thus, it’s difficult to obtain and maintain accurate demographic and insurance eligibility information. In addition, front-end staff also don’t always collect comprehensive information due to the emergent nature of the clinical situation. You need urgent care RCM solutions that not only verify eligibility in real-time but can also estimate patient responsibility and find coverage in self-pay. Here’s how ZirMed can help:

Capture revenue with point-of-service and self-pay patient collections solutions.

Urgent care patient collections processes can pose many challenges, particularly for those that must meet requirements outlined in the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). ZirMed’s urgent care patient collection solutions take the stress out of point-of-service collections and provide patients with an outstanding financial customer service experience. ZirMed’s patient payment solutions provide flexible payment options that enable maximum payment through payment plans and easy to understand payment communications.

Accelerate cash flow by managing your urgent care’s claim reimbursement.

A manual reconciliation process makes it nearly impossible to pinpoint each claim’s movement through the payment lifecycle. You need automated remittance processing and reimbursement deposit management to gain real-time cash flow insight. By automating reconciliation, you eliminate thousands of hours wasted on labor-intensive manual processing, reduce the risk of errors, auto-post pre-reconciled download files, and expose missing items—all in a matter of seconds. You also need reporting data and analytics to help you monitor performance KPIs in order to identify new ways to improve operational and financial performance.  When denials do occur, you need solutions that help you streamline the appeals process, establish new processes, and ensure corrective action going forward. Here’s how ZirMed can help:
