To improve the patient experience and reduce “no authorization” denials, Beaumont has standardized the financial clearance processes for outpatient radiology. You can view the FCC-Radiology payor guidelines for scheduling and authorization here, as well as download a common financial clearance fax form with a dropdown option for all eight Beaumont locations. If you have questions, please call the Financial Clearance Center at 855-577-5780 and choose option 4; the Center is available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In addition, the Financial Clearance teams will now be contacting patients prior to appointments, explaining their cost obligations for an upcoming procedure, including the deductible, co-pay and co-insurance out-of-pocket costs. The representative will also give the patient the option of paying up front rather than being billed after the procedures.
