5 ways to ease payment reconciliation

Reconciling claim refunds from all participating eClaims insurers can be a challenge. We’ve shared some helpful payment reconciliation tips from providers, but here are some additional recommendations that we think you would find useful:

  1. Submit claims right away - immediately after the treatment while the client is still with you.

  2. Print or save all Explanation of Benefits statements so you can refer back to them during reconciliation, if need be.

  3. Leverage the Claims list in the eClaims portal to download transactions. Although it is possible to download claims submitted up to one year ago, it may be more effective to download them every month.

  4. Plan reconciliation activities in your agenda - integrate eClaims reconciliation into your monthly bookkeeping activities.

  5. Download the eClaims insurer cheat sheet for a snapshot on payment details and contact information for each insurer. Payment questions should always be directed to the insurers.
