Bill Review

Our proprietary Nextrum technology uses a rule-based software system that assists in the review of provider bills. Nextrum recommends reimbursement according to each state’s unique fee schedule, Usual/Customary and Reasonable Fees and if appropriate, PPO. Nextrum is integrated with a utilization management database to assure that bills are re-priced with knowledge of each bill’s history (if appropriate). Client bill review questions can be directly answered by Prizm’s call center versus going directly to the adjuster, reducing call volume and increasing adjuster efficiency. This service is offered complimentary to our clients.
