A Few Words About AssuriCare

AssuriCare has revolutionized the way the long-term care insurance industry manages home care claims.

New challenges need new solutions. Home care claims are growing - in frequency, duration and complexity. New types of providers, non-standardized documentation and ever-expanding volumes force insurers to think differently about how to handle home care claims while delivering excellent service to policyholders and their families.

Enter AssuriCare.

With a unique, patent pending suite of technology and services that addresses the specific challenges of home-based long-term care claims, AssuriCare enables long-term care insurers to efficiently service claimants while effectively managing risk like never before.

LTCfastpay, an exclusive service of AssuriCare, is a turnkey service which enables claimants to approve and submit home care claims on-line, while verifying that appropriate care was delivered, and the insurer is only paying for care actually performed.

Integrated Care Management, Assuricare's philosophy and approach to care coordination, helps determine claimants' benefit eligibility and establish an appropriate plan of care, with an eye towards ongoing active claim management. This helps ensure that claimants receive all of the care they need based on their functional or cognitive status, while identifying patterns of behavior which may indicate inadequate care, claimant deterioration or possible recovery.

The first electronic long-term care claims clearinghouse. Whether claimants are utilizing licensed home health care agencies, registries, independent care providers or informal caregivers, insurers must handle a complex set of hand-written forms, invoices, service logs, visit notes and scraps of paper. With AssuriCare, insurers receive a standardized, computer-generated service invoice regardless of the type of home care provider. Further, the invoice data is available via direct system interface, reducing errors and increasing processing efficiency dramatically, setting the stage for claim auto-adjudication and straight-through processing.

With over 75 years of long-term care, technology and care management experience on our leadership team, AssuriCare understands the issues long-term care insurers face. Find out why AssuriCare's innovative and unique combination of services directly targeted at managing the unique risks from home care claims makes us The Verification Company.
