Since each of these health plans offers a wide range of different mental health and substance abuse benefits, UBA has up-to-date information on the members’ covered benefits and eligibility. UBA maintains an accurate and current database of members that allows us to administer benefits and verify eligibility, prior to authorizing care. Membership information is continually updated for new and terminated members to ensure accurate eligibility and proper claims processing. UBA also has the capability to coordinate payment for services when a member has insurance coverage from more than one source, including Medicare, other health plans, Worker's Compensation and No Fault. The goal is to prevent inappropriate, excessive or duplicate payment of a claim. Then, UBA delivers accurate and timely processing of claims. Our years of experience have resulted in excellent first pass rates and timely adjudication for our clients. Our familiarity with many different benefit plans and payers gives us the flexibility to customize how we receive and adjudicate claims based on the specific requirements of a plan.
