A-Quest is an automated service designed to help you recoup payment from patients who leave without paying.
A-quest is a comprehensive, hi-tech program used to retrieve Medicaid and Medicare numbers on the back end, by scanning a database of registered Medicaid and Medicare recipients. A-quest will identify patient eligibility by processing your accounts on a regularly scheduled basis. This program is designed exclusively to yield fast results and improve that all-important bottom line. And you only pay for returned results.
HOW IT WORKS - A-quest does not change how you manage your self-pay patients at admission and does not interfere with 3rd party eligibility. We take the patient's information from you and run it through A-Quest to investigate the patient's coverage. A-Quest stores the information, and continually checks for coverage for 2 years. This ensures that patients who have or will get coverage will be found by our system. Information found by A-Quest is reported to your business on regular basis, with all needed billing information. This reduces denials and helps ensure filing deadlines are met.
- Investigate each referred account for Medicaid/Medicare coverage.
- Run each account weekly to provide you with fast and accurate information
- Run each account for a 1 year period to ensure you never miss another billable account
- Provide you with all accurate billing information in order to reduce your denials by TMHP
- Manage these accounts on a spread sheet in the event you need additional information
- Reduce your bad debt and charity write-offs
- Reduce your cost by offering you the lowest rate
AN A-QUEST SUCCESS STORY - A 25-bed rural facility in Texas had an average 150 to 200 self pay “walk outs” each month. 10% +/- of those are found through A-Quest in just the first couple runs through our system. Many more coming later down the road. In this small hospital alone, we were able to recover over $237,000, cost that would otherwise be absorbed by the hospital and deeply cutting into their bottom line.
