Milestone Achieved: Avaneer Coverage Direct™ Delivers Significant Cost Savings

June 20, 2024

Avaneer Health has reached an exciting milestone in our journey to drive administrative savings and better patient experiences for our industry. Last month, we officially announced the launch of the Avaneer Coverage Direct™ solution and some very promising initial results with Cleveland Clinic. The proven solution proactively delivers accurate, real-time health coverage information to participating payers and providers.

It’s been rewarding to see our team’s work come to life and deliver the results our initial clients were seeking – less manual work, more insight, and fewer denials and reimbursement issues. The participating payers are improving payment integrity with COB leads, gaining greater insight into secondary and tertiary coverage.

The initial results are astounding and will grow as we add more payers and providers to the network. The hard dollar value of Avaneer Coverage Direct is up to $1.65 per claim for payers and $5.75 per claim for providers.

And what we’re doing is helping patients, which is rewarding. More transparent financial information upfront and less billing confusion creates the type of healthcare experience we all want when we’re patients. Making this impact is what inspires me to keep pushing the mission of Avaneer Health forward.

I’m deeply proud of our entire team at Avaneer Health who have worked tirelessly to make this possible.

Coverage Direct is just the first of many solutions currently in development, all focused on reducing cost and complexity for our entire industry.

I look forward to many future announcements.

Avaneer Health CEO
