Appeal success rate for accounts worked exclusively in Payment Integrity Compass

Bellin Health System, based in Green Bay, Wisc., recognized a need for a second line of defense to aid in recoveries that weren't successful with their Patient Account System (PAS).

When Bellin partnered with Payment Integrity Compass, the pair developed a workflow for their accounts: once patient financial services staff members had exhausted recovery efforts with PAS, they were sent to reimbursement specialists with Payment Integrity Compass.

This specialized staff reviewed the accounts and used the reporting capabilities available in Payment Integrity Compass to identify large payer trends, appeals those trends in bulk, and secure recoveries that would have otherwise been missed.
