Hill-Rom® Respiratory Care

Reimbursement Services

The medical insurance submission procedure is increasingly complex, time-consuming and burdensome for everybody involved. The policies, procedures, and approval criteria of payer organizations vary widely. Physicians and their staff are confronted with widely varying insurance requirements.

At the same time, patients are understandably daunted by the idea of navigating the insurance process on their own.

In an effort to streamline and simplify the insurance submission process, our staff at Advanced Respiratory, a Hill-Rom Company:

  • Complies and submits all paperwork necessary to obtain prior authorization
  • Follows up with the insurance company to ensure the submission proceeds through the process
  • Clarifies insurance company requests for information in an attempt to require retrieval of only the most pertinent patient records
  • Follow through to help resolve insurance issues
  • Our appeals team assists the patient with an appeal and advocates on their behalf to receive funding from insurance companies

Appeals Process

When a payer denies coverage, it can be stressful for you. Often, these decisions can be appealed. We will be there if that happens. In the event the payer denies an authorization request, our appeals staff will advocate for you and submit an appeal to the payer to present a case for coverage.

Professional and Passionate

Professional backgrounds of Hill-Rom reimbursement personnel include nursing, case management, and Medicaid and commercial insurance. Each individual is committed to working with you, your insurance provider, and your health care team to obtain appropriate reimbursement for the Monarch Airway Clearance System, The Vest® Airway Clearance System, and The VitalCough® System. We are passionate about improving our patient’s lives and we want to help make this process simple for you.
