Single Case Agreement With Insurance Company

For such a scenario, the pricing policy can be evaluated on a sliding scale. Although you cannot charge your insurer the standard full rate for past repeat sessions. In an off-grid scenario like this, it`s possible to use a case-by-case agreement to ensure your client has the coverage they need to get the care they rely on from you as a practitioner or therapist. As an ABA therapy provider, you may want to consider negotiating a single case agreement (SCA) to offer services to a patient. These agreements are concluded between insurance companies and out-of-network service providers (OON) with which the OON Agency is recognized as an in-network network provider (DSD). While it is usually the patient who requests SCA from their insurer, based on the absence of other DNS providers for ABA therapy in their area, your agency should always agree on the terms and rates of the services provided. Since insurers are not legally required to provide an ACS, it is important that you present them with the benefits of this possibility. Remember, however, that you remain honest and justified about the justification for the need for A.A. To embellish is to deceive. The ACS application generally falls into two categories: the new client or the current patient. If you are trying to get an ACS for a new patient, you need to consider the needs of the patient (family) in your specialty and the advantage of being close to them. If you are helping a current patient apply for an ACS from a new insurer, you justify the need for the agreement by emphasizing continuity of care.

Also remember that you must have defined your patient`s financial responsibilities to your agency until an ACS is issued. You can decide not to provide services until the FCC has been authorized, or you can agree on a financial agreement for meetings that are not covered by the agreement (just because an A.A. is authorized does not mean it will be demoted). Always ask for an SCA for OON plans for which you want to obtain permission. Consider the following strategies to get an agreement on a case-by-case basis: The client has tried and cannot find in their network a practitioner or provider that meets their needs in a way they are familiar with. In case of treatment with ABA, this should be done before the start of treatment. But changing insurance doesn`t mean goodbye. Some insurers require that the case-by-case agreement be that of the rendering provider, which must be submitted on claim form 1500. It`s also important to note that some insurers have standard protocols for case-by-case negotiation.
