Administrative Simplification

Recent MHA research estimates that the cost of billing- and insurance-related functions for the state exceeds $5 billion. This estimate includes the costs incurred by private insurers, government payers, and the downstream costs of claims submission, authorization requirements, coding reporting credentialling, eligibility verification, etc. Healthcare reform efforts at both the federal and state levels include administrative simplification as a key component of the cost-cutting agenda.
