Eligibility and Benefit Verification
Looking to save significantly on administrative costs? We offer three options for verifying eligibility and benefits.
Industry studies confirm the easiest and most cost-effective way for providers to verify eligibility and benefits is through EDI, followed by portal verification. Telephonic verification can cost from two to six times more per transaction. Make the switch today!
ASC X12N Healthcare Eligibility Benefit and Response (270/271):
Providers can adopt the fully electronic HIPAA standard, the 270/271 Eligibility, Coverage and Benefit Inquiry transaction to automatically generate an inquiry to enable automatic posting of the benefit information to the patient’s account. Contact your software vendor or clearinghouse. Eligibility transactions may be integrated into your PMS or HIS, if available.
SCAN’s Provider Portal:https://secure-pportal.scanhealthplan.com

(If you are an employee of a SCAN-contracted Medical Group or IPA, please contact your organization’s portal administrator for access. Please do not use the self-registration option.)
