Decision Support Intelligence Analysis Offers New Patient Advisor Program
Programs Help Patients And Their Families Receive All Of The Benefits That Are
Available To Them
CHICAGO, IL - July 6, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Decision Support Intelligence
Analysis (www.patientadvisor.org), an industry leader in information services for
consumers, physicians, and the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, today
announced the launch of a new PatientAdvisor Services program. The PatientAdvisor
program is comprised of two consumer programs designed to help patients and their
families receive all of the benefits that are available to them, from their health care
plans. These two plans are "Bill Audit," and "Audit and Recovery," and are consolidated
in the Reimbursement Maximization Division.
"Patients with primary and secondary coverage are often involved in a 'he said, she
said' scenario when claims are not getting paid," said Alan Glick, a special advisor to
DSIA. "The average consumer is increasingly being denied coverage for services that
should be covered. DSIA's service is really unique in that it offers claims management
services to consumers, and I hope consumers will take advantage of that."
Reimbursement Maximization Plans offer clients the following features:
- Simple Bill Audit: DSIA will review any EOB (explanation of benefits) to
insure that it is correct, and offer suggestions for adjustments.
- Audit and recovery: DSIA will provide all services of a Simple Bill Audit
as well as performing all work necessary for your provider (doctor or health
care facility) to be paid.
- Consumer Claims Maximization Service: DSIA will assist clients in obtaining
approval for reimbursement, identifying opportunities for claims
maximization, and assessing offers of alternative methods of obtaining
Concurrent with the implementation of the Reimbursement Maximization Program, DSIA is
also introducing the Patient Medical Research Companion. This service will provide
patients and their families with the most current information available concerning any
disease of interest.
The firm discovered, when talking with patients, that they are often confused by
conflicting information that is pertinent to their condition. A simple search on
Google(tm), for the topic "diabetes," returned 14,200,000 hits. That is an enormous
amount of information.
"It can be overwhelming and confusing for people to sort through the wealth of
information available without any informed guidance," says DSIA President, Alan Kelsky.
"Experienced DSIA staff will help guide the consumer to the information that is right
for them. The research is not off the shelf, but customized for the individual based on
diagnosis, length of current treatment, and willingness to participate in clinical
trials and off-label treatments."
Adds Kelsky, "As a consumer, I would want to get the most current and accurate
information for the various treatment options available for my own -- or a family
member's -- medical condition in the most timely manner. And that is what our PMRC
service can provide."
All information offered by DSIA is for educational purposes only. For specific medical
advice, diagnoses, and treatment, consult a medical professional.
