Claims Review

Specializing in reviewing Medical Claims for overcharges.






A simple audit may reduce your annual payout by 8% to 12% or more

Most hospitals have successfully created a fast turnaround time for payment from insurance companies that prohibits anyone from looking into all the non-billable services camouflaged by the UB-04 summary bill. This is resulting in millions of dollars being wasted in our healthcare system


Due to the complexity of medical guidelines, it would be recommended to perform a comprehensive provider audit.


Which  includes:

  • Determine compliance with both the contract terms and plan provisions 

  • Evaluate accuracy of provider billings and highlight overpayments 

  • Assess for potentially abusive or fraudulent claims per provider profiting, by evaluating subscriber claim history and other analytical techniques 

  • Determine if charges on the itemized statement are corroborated by the medical record documentation 

  • Evaluate charges for conformance with federal billing regulations that govern inpatient/outpatient billing compliance  


Potential Indicators of 


Double Billing


Health care providers tend to charge twice for the services they rendered to patients


Procedures or lab test that instead of being billed with one code are billed with a bunch of separate codes to obtain more money


Involves upcoding to obtain higher reimbursement than one is entitled. Providers use higher paying code to fraudulently reflect that of a more expensive procedure

Ancillary Charges


Items that are billed that should already be included in cost of hospital stay or surgical procedure

Phantom Billing

Billing for services that were never rendered to patients 

Code Jamming


Laboratories inserting or jamming fake diagnostic codes to get coverage

Stop Loss Prevention

By lowering claims cost and working closely with your stop loss provider, NLB has effectively reduced future stop loss premiums
