St. Paul, Minnesota — November 13, 2012 — As today’s medical costs continue to rise, insurance payers are exploring options for further medical cost containment within their claim operations. Automating workers’ compensation claims is a significant part of these cost reduction initiatives. The automation of workers’ compensation processing saves both time and money by simplifying the detection process for fraudulent, unauthorized, or duplicate claims.

Payers need an efficient solution that integrates into their workflow. Automated workers’ compensation claim processing streamlines the overall process by automatically employing audits that check member-matching criteria set forth by a payer. These audits save money by also identifying and eliminating inaccurate, duplicate, and erroneous charges. This ensures that claims are meeting payers’ quality standards and necessary accuracy. These quality standards are implemented based on analysis of the relationship between procedure cost, diagnosis and coverage.
