Blue Cross Blue Shield Single Case Agreement

A use and quality management mechanism to help providers make decisions about the most appropriate treatment for a given clinical case. Sometimes an insurance company may have a “payment policy with the highest in network rate,” in which case you will not be able to negotiate the rate. You still have the option to refuse the SCA if the sentence and conditions are not acceptable to you. A plan to consolidate, integrate or coordinate the group health plan, the disability plan and the workers` compensation program (according to state regulations) into a single health benefit plan covering workers 24 hours a day. If the patient has recently switched insurance providers, the insurance company may accept a limited number of sessions (approximately 10) and a period (for example. B 60 days since the insurance change) to allow the patient to continue treatment with the current network provider while switching to a network provider. If there is evidence that the person could pose a danger to himself or others, or if it affects the patient psychologically or mentally (for example. B failures in the progress of therapy), if this proves necessary to switch to an in-network provider, a case could be advanced for an increase in adequacy with the current provider. Examples: a patient has an uncertain bond and finds it very difficult to trust others. The therapeutic relationship already established with the current supplier can be considered as a factor in granting the SCA.

It should be noted that insurance companies have a legal obligation to properly treat patients by well-trained professionals. Therefore, if the insurance plan does not cover off-network services, and there are no in-network providers with the specified specialty, then you, as a qualified provider, can negotiate your usual full fees as a meeting rate for new patients. This is because the patient does not simply choose to see you, but is forced to deal with insufficient providers in the network. In this case, the patient usually makes the case with the assurance of an ACS with you before starting treatment. An agreement with a provider not to charge the subscriber a difference between the fees charged for covered services (excluding co-insurance) and the amount agreed by contract with a Blue Cross Blue Shield company as a full payment for these services.
