PACE CLAIMS PROCESSING
WHAT IS PACE CLAIMS PROCESSING?
PACE stands for Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Reliance assists PACE organizations by managing the business functions that drive reimbursement revenue and utilization costs as well as PACE health plan functions.
Through our claims processing services, we provide PACE organizations with claim settlements, processing and payment based on the authorized services and provider contracts.
Additionally, Reliance has a robust data management system to help PACE organizations track accounts payable, claim expenses, utilization, diagnoses and encounters and provides monthly reporting to the PACE organization.
MAINTAINING ENROLLMENT & ELIGIBILITY
Reliance Community Care Partners will maintain your enrollment and disenrollment information as provided by the client. We also have the ability to issue one insurance card per member plus maintain an up-to-date enrollment activity file for each participant.
MEDICARE RISK ADJUSTMENT PROCESSING (RAPS)
Reliance will submit risk adjustments and encounter data at least quarterly to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) based on claims and clinic encounters received from the client. We also will assist with, correct, and follow-up on any errors in risk adjustment data. Any return files will be submitted.
