Key challenges in Mental Health billing include

Claims are processed and paid based on the provider type and fee schedules vary for each type of providers.

Solution: Plutus team will verify the provider type during the eligibility verification and exact provider information will be added.

Patient benefits need to be verified before submitting the claims, most of the patient might not have Mental health benefits they might have only Health benefit coverage.

Solution: Eligibility verification is done to determine whether the services will be covered by payer for the appointment date or not, if not covered same will be updated to client.

Usual commercial payers will be completely different, for instance, Instead of Aetna we need to bill the claims to Aetna Behavioral health. (Exact payers need to be verified before claim submission)

Solution: Proper payer ID#, Address will be verified before claims submission and same will be documents in PM software.

For Medicaid CO and few other commercial payers require Authorization number In-order to process the claims.

Solution: Based on client SOW, Plutus will be sending notification for obtaining prior Authorization or Plutus team will obtain Authorization and update them in PM.

Plutus Health Mental Health Billing Approach:

  • Before rendering service to patient, Plutus team will obtain the future appointment reports and verify the eligibility and benefits for the patient.
  • During appointment time, Patient collectables like Co-pay, Deductible collected from patient during visit. (Deductibles are collected based on the allowed amount by payer)
  • Claim audit is done before transmitting the claim to payer which would help is reducing the denials and rejections
  • Plutus plan in a way that patient collectable will be done before the claim submission and payer payments in the first submission.
  • For Non-covered and no coverage notification will be sent to client where they can reach patient and get updated payer information if no insurance Self-pay rate can be collected.
