Risk Adjustment Coding Review Services
Risk adjustment plays a crucial role in ensuring adequate payment for the Medicare Advantage and ACA beneficiaries you manage. Omega Healthcare can help. Our risk-adjusted HCC coding results in more accurate documentation of patient demographics, health conditions, and health status. The result is better per-member cost calculations and optimal compensation.
Conducting hierarchical condition category (HCC) coding reviews is a complex but essential process for successfully managing risk in accordance with value-based contracts. We have the expertise needed to help payers prepare and submit accurate and complete data in advance of CMS deadlines. Omega Healthcare’s HCC Coding Review Services include retrospective reviews after treatment, concurrent reviews during hospitalization, and prospective reviews for new member encounters. This helps improve risk score quality and more optimal financial results.

Provider & Member Communication Services
Answering member inquiries in a timely manner can be challenging, especially for organizations struggling with staffing shortages. Whether clinical questions or benefits inquiries, Omega Healthcare Provider & Member Communication Services can alleviate these challenges by helping manage provider and member communication on your behalf. We partner with you to determine the clinical and operational levers that would have the most impact on cost and quality and then customize a communication plan that delivers the best results for your unique requirements.
By accessing information in the member’s EHR, we can effectively triage the member’s needs, route messages to the provider, schedule appointments, provide prescription refills, and coordinate admissions and discharges. This helps your members get the care they need when they need it while reducing that burden on both the provider’s staff and yours.
Omega Healthcare also helps with proactive chronic care management outreach to drive down costs, improve outcomes, and create lasting change for your high-risk members. Our team of registered nurses and physician assistants analyze data captured from beneficiaries’ health monitoring devices to help quickly identify issues needing proactive intervention.
We understand the importance of provider communication, which is why we include provider outreach as part of our communications services. We will proactively contact your providers to coordinate administrative tasks such as physician credentialing, as well as to share opportunities around increasing utilization of healthcare services offered under the member’s plan. It’s a win-win for payers, providers, and patients.
