Finding Retroactive Medicaid Eligibility
Many Self-Pay Accounts at the time of admission are NOT eligible for Medicaid. However, a good number of these accounts become eligible for their date of service long after discharge. These Medicaid-Eligible Self-Pay Accounts often remain UNDETECTED and WRITTEN-OFF as Bad Debt or Charity Care.
Even though an account is not eligible for Medicaid at admission, it can become Medicaid Eligible RETROACTIVELY at any time for a FULL YEAR from the date of service.
The only way to discover these retroactively-eligible accounts is to check ALL self-pay accounts INDIVIDUALLY for a FULL YEAR from the date of service. Checking ALL Self-Pay Accounts on a recurring basis can be very Labor Intensive and Costly.
- Process your Entire Open-Account Database through our Proprietary HIPAA-Compliant Batch-Oriented Medicaid Eligibility Software
- Provide reporting indicating all accounts that are Eligible.
Used on a monthly basis, XpressChecker can virtually eliminate the unnecessary write-off of Medicaid-Eligible self-pay accounts to bad debt or charity.
