Estimates

Compliance with the Federal No Surprises Act

As part of the No Surprises Act (effective 1/1/2022), federal regulations now require health care providers (including ASCs) to provide a good faith estimate to uninsured/self-pay patients.

Rivet Estimates can help you meet this federal requirement and stay in compliance. Click on the image below to learn more:

Estimates now in current software

Software providers (for patient registration, patient billing, EHR, PM, etc.) who want to provide patient cost estimates without the heavy lifting can now incorporate Rivet’s estimates functionality into their current product via API.

Use Rivet in your current software via API to automate estimates based on your appointment schedule; send estimates and payment requests in existing patient communications such as appointment reminders and more.

Developer documentation is available here.

The "all service types" dropdown has moved behind the advanced modal.

Denials

3 new features simplify your worklist

#1: Denials will now automatically move to a “recovered” status when they have a recovered dollar amount.

#2: Configure your definition of a denial through new exclusions. Build an exclusion rule or combination of rules that will reclassify a line item that meets those rule criteria from a Denied status to a Paid status.

Exclusion rules will completely remove denials that meet these rule criteria from your denials worklist and will not count these line items as denied revenue in Rivet’s claims analytics.

#3: Leverage new automated status rules to keep your worklist relevant without the manual effort.
