AxisCare, the leading scheduling and management software solution for non-medical home care businesses, has begun offering a comprehensive billing service to agencies providing services to veterans receiving benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
AxisCare VA Billing is a turn-key billing service that provides agency owners with the opportunity to outsource VA claim submissions, appeals, and payment applications within AxisCare’s management platform. With percentage-based fees determined by remittances, as opposed to claim submissions, agency owners will be able to access support to navigate the VA billing system and its various payers.
After successfully providing this service over the past five years to a subset of 50 agencies, AxisCare made the decision to open enrollment to all AxisCare users in response to market demand and client requests for assistance with VA billing operations.
Veterans Affairs has had a system for helping agencies serve our nations’ veterans for many years, however, the complexities involved with submitting and scrubbing claims for accuracy and ensuring the correct and timely delivery of payments has hindered home care providers from offering home care to this segment of the population.
With just over 9 million U.S. veterans currently enrolled in the VA, only 49% of the current total veteran population is using at least one VA benefit. AxisCare is hopeful that, by offering this service, many more agencies will take on more veterans in their communities and help them live a longer, more fulfilled life at home.
