Utilization Review: Cost Savings
EK Health's efficient, effective UR program can save you money with both direct and indirect savings:
- No unbundling of treatment requests. All individual items in a referral are handled as a single review.
- Peer review is routed directly to the designated specialist. No extra time or charges for an initial primary care review.
- Fast UR turnaround leads to reduced TTD and improved customer satisfaction.
- No unnecessary requests for additional information leads to reduced TTD.
- Comprehensive decision letters, completed on time, reduce litigation and penalties.
- Frequency of denial due to insufficient information less than 1% of the time eliminates unnecessary second reviews on the same request.
