How to Seamlessly Integrate ICD-10

Guest post by Michele Hibbert-Iacobacci, Vice President of Information Management & Client Services

Seamlessly integrate ICD-10? How is that possible? Realistically, yes, ICD-10 is new and the United States will start to utilize the new code set effective October 1, 2014.

Is ICD-10 really new, though? Not really, and frankly many entities are so ready they are looking forward to ICD-11, which has a “who knows when” implementation timeframe.

Once a claim has gone through the initial FNOL process, it moves on to the review and processing phase. Typically, the desk reviewer (DR) examines the damage repair estimate to ensure it is compliant with all of the business rules in place. If the DR finds any discrepancies or if the carrier is required to do so on direct repair shops, then a re-inspection may be ordered. This can set in motion several additional processes involving more people and more reports, for example:

  • A claims manager may need to report the results of the re-inspection to various state agencies.
  • Results may also be used to confirm compliance and to ensure that the body shop has adhered to the carrier’s direct repair program guidelines, as well as repair industry standards.

By Christopher Tidball, Senior Director,
Casualty Solutions Consultant, Mitchell

Having been on the front lines of claims vendor management for a number of years, I will be the first to attest that things are not always what they seem. As much as insurers would like to commoditize many aspects of the claims procurement process, the reality is that vendor selection is far from simplistic.

From subrogation and salvage to legal counsel and private investigators, there is often a temptation to shoot for the lowest price. But is the lowest price really the lowest price? Rather than focus on price, the focus should be on the ultimate net cost. Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than on the medical bill review front.

Measuring auto physical damage estimating performance by benchmarking key performance indicators (KPI) has been in place since the advent of electronic estimating. Unfortunately, so too have misunderstood metrics and efforts by appraisers to ‘game’ the numbers. This seems especially true when it comes to measuring auto parts performance.

Email Marketing: Turn Scanning Into Reading

Believe it or not, people still read marketing emails these days – they-just-read'em-a-lot-faster. More like ‘scanning’ than reading. They look for the highlights, the TEXT that stands out (even by putting text in parenthesis). There you go – three examples for you just in the previous sentence.
