The Sunknowledge advantage in Prior Authorization for Imaging Centers

Prior authorization is required for advanced outpatient imaging procedures:

  • CT scans
  • MRIs
  • MRAs
  • PET scans
  • Nuclear medicine studies, including nuclear cardiology

 

The main focus of a well-managed imaging center’s billing operation is to submit claims for services punctually and in the proper, required format, and receive reimbursement as fast as possible. Performing these services without first obtaining the payer’s authorization will create a denial of payment when the claim for services is submitted.  The authorization process begins with information related to patient eligibility – obtaining and verifying correct information about the patient’s insurance plan.
