Compass Code Edits

Evaluating medical coding compliance and validity with sensibility, consistency, and accuracy.

Compass systematizes the technology applied to code validation use on claims that has too often been left for manual review by medical professionals.  Beacon has designed Compass to precisely analyze all incoming claims for appropriateness and accuracy from a medical billing and coding appropriateness standpoint. The system flags claims that attempt to bill incompatible or unnecessary procedures, performing checks for medically unlikely or unnecessary combinations of edits, along with a host of other checks for reasonableness. Controls for code edit values allow you to deny, pend, ignore, or fire an alert for incoming in- and out-of-network claims. When necessary, the system will examine claim history for code verifications.

Features:

  • Identifies services that may have inappropriate, unnecessary or incompatible codes
  • Includes checks for age and gender appropriateness
  • Validates for expired or non-existent codes
  • Automatically denies or pends claims to Smart Workflow Queues that you choose
  • Automates code edits without the use of Doctors and Nurses
  • Allows you to devote your time away from manual review to more strategic efforts
  • Improve auto-adjudication rates and claim payment accuracy
  • Dramatically increase savings on affected claims

Compass provides significant claim savings and increases end-to-end efficiency, allowing you to spend less time on manual workarounds and more time with your customers.
