Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
MCare Solutions – one of the first companies to provide Transfer DRG (TDRG) reimbursement recovery services to acute care providers – announces that Doctors Medical Center – San Pablo Campus, a full-service, acute care hospital serving the residents of west Contra Costa County for over 50 years, has selected MCare Solutions to assist with Medicare underpayment recovery. Doctors Medical Center is supported by local taxes and owned and operated by the West Contra Costa Healthcare District.
MCare’s TDRG reimbursement recovery services will help Doctors Medical Center address the impact of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) post-acute transfer policy that only checks for the overpayment of TDRGs, while leaving it to the responsibility of individual providers to identify when claims have been underpaid. Additionally, MCare’s expertise in the area of finding unbilled events will enable Doctors Medical Center to prepare and submit undiscovered shadow claims. Finally, MCare’s Payer Verification service will review self pay accounts and then search for insurance coverage that was active at time of service but previously undiscovered.
Since 2005 when Medicare started its TDRG payment methodology, MCare Solutions has analyzed millions of discharges – and recovered more than $150 million in reimbursements. This extensive history of reviewing millions of TDRG claims associated with Medicare Fee-for-Service and Medicare Advantage payers, combined with proprietary technology, allows MCare to assist clients in finding unrecovered funds that are available and compliant.
“MCare Solutions remains committed to helping clients recover underpayments, and we look forward to assisting Doctors Medical Center realize their full, entitled Medicare payments,” said David Jupp, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of MCare Solutions, Inc. “
