DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TriZetto Corporation today announced a new solution to help physicians manage the financial impact of the transition to ICD-10. Delivered by TriZetto’s Provider Solutions business unit, the solution is called eobResolve®, and it helps providers collect appropriate payments caused by erroneous claim denials and underpayments due to coding errors during the hectic ICD-10 transition.
According to the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange1, claim denial rates are projected to rise anywhere from 100 to 200 percent after the healthcare industry transitions to ICD-10 coding. Meanwhile, according to results from a recent nationwide survey2, more than 70 percent of provider respondents had made no plans to prepare for increased claim denials as a result of ICD-10.
The eobResolve solution helps providers identify and organize mistakenly denied and underpaid claims, as well as provide a detailed explanation for each denial or underpayment. The solution streamlines processes needed to resolve payment errors and avoid similar future mistakes, and provides management reporting that categorizes and quantifies the financial impact of coding issues.
“Our industry continues to experience enormous change, requiring providers to have more access to helpful business intelligence,” said Lori Logan, president (interim), TriZetto Provider Solutions. “eobResolve delivers information providers need to help ensure proper payment, which is critical as we transition to ICD-10--one of the biggest challenges for the healthcare industry in our lifetime.”
“It is highly likely that with the industry transition to ICD-10, claim denials due to coding errors are going to rise. How providers prepare for this increase will greatly impact their financial success in the post-ICD-10 world,” said Jeffrey Rose, MD, chief medical information officer for TriZetto.
To help all providers navigate ICD-10, TriZetto offers helpful tips and advice through its provider resource center at www.trizetto.com/Provider-Solutions/Resource-Center.
