Express Claims Turnaround – Validated claims electronically submitted with rapid remittance and minimal rejections.
Electronic GOS (General Ophthalmic Services), or eGOS provides a benefits processing service for the most frequently submitted NHS claims. The NHS validation rules are applied directly to the eGOS screens, so if the form has not been completed correctly, or the patient is ineligible, the benefit will not process; this saves the practice time and expense that would otherwise be incurred awaiting an ultimately rejected remittance. The pre-validation eliminates the possibility for negligent misrepresentation, such as duplicate claims or manual data entry errors; this maintains the practice’s compliance with NHS anti-fraud procedures. The submission of eGOS forms is far less resource intensive than paper-based returns; the automated processes reduce the workload on practice staff, reduces rejections and speeds up the payment process.
