SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Certive Solutions Inc. (OTCQB:CTVEF) (CSE:CBP) – (“Certive” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that effective immediately, the Company has expanded its range of offerings to include a full suite of managed care underpayment services.
Certive’s Omega Division has commenced a review of client files for two of its larger customers and determined that there is a significant opportunity to recover additional managed care underpayment dollars, in addition to that found in Lost Charge Recoveries. Certain clients have favorable terms and conditions in their payer contracts which payers often do not pay accurately. The Company has added resources to identify these payment errors and retains a portion of the recoveries attained for clients as its fees.
The two facilities selected have been targeted due to the favourablity of their contract provisions which should be a predictor of additional incremental revenues. The services are being offered at the date of this press release with the two initial facilities.
Research from the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) estimates that payers underpay in the U.S. between seven (7%) to eleven (11%) percent, on average. There are several additional categories of service offerings being contemplated by the Company to enhance capacity within managed care.
Additionally, management reports that on an interim basis for the month of October thus far with only 10 days of business, Omega has billed a total of $140,000 in revenue to our clients. This together with accounts receivable collections from September of $26,000 will provide sufficient cash flow to cover all of Omega’s operating costs for the month.
Additional information will be made available as it is forthcoming.
