Payment Integrity

Our clean claim reviews leverage clinical expertise, cutting edge proprietary technology and a service-first approach to drive comprehensive claim reviews and ensure claims are accurate prior to payment.


What Are Clean Claim Reviews

Clean Claim Reviews, also referred to as itemized bill reviews (IBR), are a component of our Payment Integrity program that provide detailed clinical reviews of inpatient hospital claims and include full support through disputes and appeals with providers.

Payment integrity is about adherence to standard billing practices and accountability at every level; to identify and eliminate errors or inconsistencies and ensure claims are paid accurately the first time.

Why are Clean Claim Reviews Important?

Clean claim Reviews are paramount to ensuring high dollar inpatient claims are paid accurately to reduce waste in our healthcare system and the trillion-dollar annual hospital spend in the US.
