Medisure has coding specialists who review and verify codes before submitting each claim.

Insurers may deny a claim because the diagnosis code given doesn’t support the need for the service provided. To avoid this situation, we use software that edits charges for coverage determinations We gather policies regarding medical necessity from all your insurers as well.

Obtain Prior Authorization

We create a process that ensures your schedulers get prior authorization for every service that requires it We investigate prior authorization requirements for in- office services most commonly ordered during the patient visit so your staff knows when to obtain that authorization before delivering a service.
