About the Clearing Service
Healthcode has been the official medical invoice clearing house since 2000 for the independent health sector. Healthcode’s validation and electronic bill clearing system is called the Clearing Service.
The Clearing Service is the process whereby Healthcode accepts invoices from providers, validates them for completeness and correctness and then forwards them securely to the relevant PMI. Sometimes referred to as ‘claims scrubbing’, the process entails checking for correct use of codes, formats and prevents time-consuming and costly processing errors that could delay the reimbursement process.
The system was designed and developed for the industry to facilitate administrative and operational efficiency. The Clearing Service has evolved from basic to more enhanced sophisticated validation checks - see our enhanced clearing solutions for more details or click on our Clearing Service guide.
