Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    _____________ is defined as the period in time when a person is qualified for healthcare services covered by the insurance plan or entity (third party payer).

    Explanation
    The term "eligibility period" refers to the specific time period during which an individual is eligible to receive healthcare services covered by their insurance plan or third-party payer. This period is typically determined by factors such as enrollment in the insurance plan, payment of premiums, and meeting any other requirements set by the insurance provider. During this eligibility period, the individual can access healthcare services without any additional authorization or pre-certification.

    The verification process is used to confirm the accuracy and completeness of key information. In this case, the key information includes payer, encounter, and geographic information. This suggests that these three categories are crucial for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the data. The other options may also be important, but they are not specifically mentioned as key information in this context.

      Benefit level.

      Eligibility period.

    • D.

      Referral

    Correct Answer
    A. Pre-certification.
    Explanation
    Pre-certification is the process of obtaining approval from an insurance company before receiving a medical service or treatment. It involves meeting certain criteria or standards of care that the insurance company requires in order to ensure that the service is necessary and appropriate. Attesting, on the other hand, refers to providing evidence or proof of something, which is not directly related to meeting a standard of care prior to service. Therefore, the correct answer is pre-certification.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Benefit level is defined as the service that the third party payer will pay, based on the patient's coverage plan. This means that the amount or extent of coverage provided by the insurance company for a particular service or treatment is determined by the benefit level specified in the patient's plan. It determines the maximum amount that the payer will reimburse for a specific service or treatment, and any costs beyond this benefit level will typically have to be paid by the patient.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Necessary data needed to make an effective collection call include all of the following except:

    • A.

      Date of birth

    • B.

      Date of service

    • C.

      Insurance information

    • D.

      Patient’s address

    Correct Answer
    D. Patient’s address
    Explanation
    To make an effective collection call, the necessary data needed includes the date of service, insurance information, and the patient's address. However, the patient's date of birth is not essential for the collection call process. The date of birth may be useful for identification purposes or to verify the patient's age, but it is not directly related to collecting payment or resolving any outstanding bills.

    Correct Answer
    D. Incorrect patient phone number
    Explanation
    The given options list common stalls and delays in a healthcare setting. Pre-existing conditions, stop loss issues, and authorization not completed or on file are all potential causes for delays in providing care or processing claims. However, an incorrect patient phone number is not directly related to delays in healthcare services and is therefore the exception in this list.

      Physical bill form, ie UB04

    • B.

      Superbill

    • C.

      Paper aged trial balance

    • D.

      Automated collection work list

    Correct Answer
    B. Superbill
    Explanation
    A superbill is a document used in healthcare settings to record the services provided to a patient during a visit. It contains information such as the patient's demographics, the services rendered, and the corresponding billing codes. Unlike the other options listed, a superbill is not typically used for third-party follow-up. Instead, it is primarily used for internal record-keeping and for the patient to submit claims to their insurance company for reimbursement. Therefore, the correct answer is "Superbill."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    All of the following are advantages of a Courtesy Discharge except:

    • A.

      Reduces accounts receivables

    • B.

      Allows for greater accuracy in billing

    • C.

      Improves traffic flow

    • D.

      Improves patient-hospital relations

    Correct Answer
    A. Reduces accounts receivables
    Explanation
    A courtesy discharge is a process where a patient is discharged from the hospital without being billed for their services. This is typically done as a gesture of goodwill or for patients who are unable to pay their medical bills. While a courtesy discharge can have several advantages, such as allowing for greater accuracy in billing, improving traffic flow, and enhancing patient-hospital relations, it does not directly reduce accounts receivables. Accounts receivables refer to the outstanding balances owed to the hospital by patients or insurance companies, and a courtesy discharge does not eliminate or reduce these balances.

This legal encumbrance ensures that the creditor has a security interest in the property until the debt is paid off.

Electronic billing eliminates the need for physical documents and allows for a more streamlined and efficient billing system.

It is used for billing and reimbursement purposes. The elements of a chargemaster typically include modifiers, revenue codes, and CPT/HCPCS codes. These codes help in identifying and categorizing the services provided. However, ICD-9 codes, which are used for diagnostic coding, are not typically included in a chargemaster as they are not directly related to the pricing and billing of services.
