Many procedures, including Spine, Total Joint Replacement, as well as ESI and Facet Injections are increasingly under the gun for proper precertification and ultimately, payment of a clean claim. PSG has spent the last few months heavily engaged with our surgeons, scheduling professionals, and business office experts to fully understand the scope of challenges around major procedure precertification including its ultimate ramification: payment.

  • The precertification process is getting harder for everything from simple MRIs to major surgical procedures.
  • Payors are requiring more clinical information for each precertification.
  • Not all payors require the same information.
  • Denials and “requests for additional information” are on the rise.
  • The pre-surgical documentation doesn’t always support the service.

Help is here:
PSG has developed free tools to assist physicians who currently are performing the procedures targeted for audits or payment recoups. Want to reduce your risk? Contact us today and request the checklist tools that will provide the specific language for your documentation that auditors are hoping you forget.
