In this podcast interview CAQH’s Executive Director Robin Thomashauer and Project Director Atul Pathiyal discuss a new CAQH initiative to create a single source of coverage status that will make it easier for hospitals and physicians to bill insurers accurately when there are COB issues.
CAQH pegs the cost savings opportunity from better COB at about $800 million per year. Based on my experience with health plans I think it could be even more.
The health insurance world is changing significantly with the advent of the Affordable Care Act. No one –including CAQH– seems to know what impact Obamacare will have on COB.May 31, 2013
