How to ensure payment integrity for NICU claims

Put your NICU billing and payment accuracy concerns to bed with CRIBS, ProgenyHealth’s Claims Review and Integrity of Billing Service.

Claims management is one of the most critical aspects for health plans to optimize in order to achieve cost savings.  CRIBS helps prevent inaccurate claims payment by providing insights into the billing behaviors that are driving up NICU claims costs.

Our service enables post-adjudication, prepayment verification of coded charges and levels based on our clinical authorizations and expected claim outcome. Our proprietary platform, Baby Trax®, provides the complete data history to make it all happen, proactively, within your crucial TAT targets.

CRIBS helps improve these NICU cost drivers within any payment methodology or contract type:

    • Length-of-stay – by verifying number of days billed vs. authorized
    • Level-of-care – by assuring the billed charges match the clinical levels of care authorized
    • Diagnostic severity – APR-DRG, with over 100 targeted codes that we can review and document to help eliminate up-coding

Avoid back-end audits and the pay-and-chase game

CRIBS saves health plans the cost and time associated with NICU claims processing by ensuring the claims submitted are consistent with the services authorized by ProgenyHealth’s UM nurses and Medical Directors. It’s also an important part of our collaborative approach to working with your providers, building valued and trusted relationships.
