About us

Next Health Choice’s mission is to streamline the processes required by insurance companies for eligibility, benefits, and pre-authorizations. We aim to be the best service provider for pre-authorizations. Through automation and streamlined workflows, we want to provide a scalable solution that lets our clients grow. Our goal is to integrate to your workflow so that payer interaction is less burdensome.

Optimizing Pre-Authorization

Why Next Health Choice

The workload that insurance companies place on you costs your business a considerable amount each year. Nurses, MAs, front desk administrators, surgical coordinators, billing staff, and even doctors can get caught up and waste countless, uncompensated hours. Our system allows you to refocus on your patients, not insurance bureaucracy!

Our cloud-based application requires no download/installation, allows you to verify verify benefits & eligibility for all payers, including carve-outs and labor funds!

Service costs are directly tied to your usage volume. There is no limit for volume, and no additional user license fees. Access our portal from any computer in your office.

When verifying coverage, we go beyond simply reviewing if the patient has active insurance and if they have met their deductible. Next Health Choice reviews medical policies for coverage and to help your staff identify what must be included to meet medical necessity, including the correct ICD-10 code.

Our pre-authorization service handles pre-authorizations for any procedure, including imaging, surgery, DME, physical therapy, and pain management. We work to prevent delays in care by predicting when a case may require peer-to-peer review. Before submitting pre-authorizations to a payer, we review the notes and clinical guidance to flag any potential causes for denial. We work with your staff to fill in missing data or clarify vague clinical notes, ensuring the key information is available to the payer.

The Next Health Choice system's algorithms continuously learn and improve their focus of every potential cause of claim denial before a patient comes in for any procedure. Clients see claims paid without delay, preventing denials, and protecting patients from expensive medical bills.
