Common Insurance Mistakes Can Be Fixed Through Insurance Card Scan

Did you know that the United States healthcare system wastes up to $850 billion per year on errors involving bad insurance data? Insurance cards don’t have a standard format, and this can cause problems when trying to verify coverage. 

One of the easiest ways mistakes are made when it comes to insurance card scan and verification is simple input errors. Hospital staff often have to input a patient’s information by hand and can sometimes make mistakes on their or their providers information. Patients may also provide the wrong insurance card or information on a policy that is lapsed. The people who are inputting this data usually have no way to tell, and can make errors that cost both them and their patients time and money.

To solve these common issues, many offices are choosing to switch to automated processes. This removes the chance of human error and relies on AI technology which automatically updates patient data in real time. This ensures information regarding insurance is correct, and patients avoid being overcharged for their medical services. These processes also save billions of dollars in avoiding fraudulent insurance claims due to input errors, and save time from having to solve these errors.
