4C Health Solutions joins the COVID-19 battle with solution targeting improper billing.
Updated: Feb 1, 2022
4C Health Solutions (4C), a health care data analytics company, today announced an evolution to their advanced analytics capabilities – a new COVID-19 analytics module. This enhancement to their proprietary algorithms targets pandemic-driven changes in modes and methods of healthcare such as the increased use of ‘Telehealth’ and billing for COVID-19 testing and treatment, to identify improper payments. In addition, the COVID-19 module covers changes introduced by the Cares Act to ensure employers with self-insured health plans and their employees do not overpay due to improper billing.
‘This new set of COVID-19 algorithms will continue to evolve as the healthcare ecosystem adapts to new rules and procedures’, said Ron Templeton, CEO of 4C. ‘While improper payments and fraud are always present, pandemic-driven changes create a host of new healthcare overpayment risks for self-insured employers. This platform enhancement ensures our clients continue to enjoy total cost transparency over their self-insured health plans.’
Specific features of the new COVID-19 module include a COVID-19 payment integrity review that looks for common improper payments such as:
Incorrect code combinations
Invalid DRG Add-on payments
Invalid cost sharing
Total spend for members with COVID-19 diagnoses are analyzed to identify outliers and provide insights on related underlying health conditions.
The new COVID-19 module was launched in April for current 4C clients. For more information on how 4C can help your company recover improper health plan payments, visit 4chealthsolutions.com.
