Insurance Coverage Estimates Report Updates

At Stratasan, we believe in continuous improvement. Sometimes that improvement means making updates to our platform offerings. With that in mind, we want to make you aware of additions to our Canvas platform.

Added Medicare Advantage as Insurance Type

Any covered lives identified as 65+ with a Direct Purchase plan are now separated into the newly created Medicare Advantage insurance type. These covered lives were previously all under the Direct Purchase insurance type. Stratasan is working under the assumption that any direct purchase plan associated with a person 65+ is considered to be Medicare Advantage.

Added Age Group Detail 

Users can now view the insurance coverage for pediatrics, adults, and seniors separately via the report export. A new column for age groupings is included. Ages are split into the following ranges: 0-18, 19-34, 35-64, 65+.

These changes are both effective as of October 22, 2020.

The APCD Payment by CPT Code Report: Now in Canvas

Many planners lack the insight they need to effectively navigate preferred payer negotiations and service line expansion efforts. Often, teams don’t have the critical intelligence they need, which can be derived from all-payer claims data (APCD). This gives payers the upper hand in negotiations since they use hospital claims data to determine reimbursements.

Stratasan’s all-payer claims-based Payment by CPT Code Report allows strategic planning and managed care teams to explore payment data and charge data side by side. This report provides the necessary insights to grow a service profitably and negotiate confidently.
