Benefits of Setting up a Clearinghouse
There are two main benefits when connecting a CentralReach account to a clearinghouse. First, users can send out claims electronically within CentralReach. No need to do this on third-party websites or portals. Second, users can receive payments, in the form of an ERA (electronic remittance advice), directly in their CentralReach account. Users can then view, observe, notate, reconcile and ultimately post payments.
With our clearinghouse partner, Change Healthcare, users have two additional tools to support billing success. Users can electronically verify eligibility, in which they check that a client’s insurance is valid and receive information back from the payor regarding covered services. Users can also complete live claim status checks to find out what is happening with their claim. No need to spend time on the phone with payors, or to do this on payor websites.
Connecting CentralReach to Change Healthcare
To get started please contact your CentralReach account manager and subscribe to Change Healthcare. CentralReach will set up your SFTP gateway in the platform (to send claims and receive ERAs) and will set up your Change Healthcare ConnectCenter portal.
