What is Benefit Accuracy Rate?

The number of patient responsibilities for health insurance claims in which the payer returned the correct patient responsibility information (based on patient benefits eligibility) at the time of service divided by the total number of claims processed by the payer over the same period of time, as a percentage.

Why should Benefit Accuracy Rate be measured?

Benefit Accuracy Rate measures the percentage of instances where the health insurance company communicated the appropriate patient responsibility amount (i.e., co-pay, deductible, or co-insurance amounts) to the healthcare provider, based on the services rendered and the benefits that the patient is eligible for under their insurance policy. A high rate of incorrect patient responsibility information has a significant negative impact on both health plan member experience/service levels, as well as the service being provided to the healthcare provider (e.g., doctor, clinic, hospital, etc.). Errors here can also impact employee productivity and rework rates within claims operations, as additional payments may have to be collected from customers (or paid out to customers) following the communication of an incorrect patient responsibility amount. To remedy inaccuracies here, look to pre-adjudicate claims (and/or adjudicate them in real-time) to estimate patient responsibility, or implement more rigorous methods for verifying patient eligibility.
