The partnership aims at eliminating the issue of pre-authorization delays and payment denials for oncology clinics.
FREMONT, CA: To provide radiation oncology clinics with pre-authorization for insurance coverage of novel radiation cancer therapies, Advanced Radiation Therapy (ART), an innovator in precision radiation therapy for breast cancer, and Apollo Healthcare, an administrative services company, have formed a strategic agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Apollo Healthcare will provide its Prior-Authorization package, among other services, to ART's existing customers and any healthcare facilities interested in using their products, such as PreciseRTTM and AccuBoost, in their clinical patient treatment arsenals.
"We are very excited to be teaming with Apollo Healthcare to ensure oncology patients that can benefit from PreciseRT and AccuBoost are able to receive our novel Non-Invasive Breast Brachytherapy (NIBB) treatments with no delay or interruption to care based on insurance coverage," remarked Bill Dowd, Chief Executive Officer of Advanced Radiation Therapy.
A U.S.-based healthcare facility can be self-assured that physicians will be able to treat patients with the technology of their choice and that the health care facility will be paid the appropriate payment for the lifesaving care the patient requires by leveraging Apollo Healthcare's human resources, financial modeling, and intimate knowledge of commercial and Medicare insurance coding and payment coverage.
"Apollo Healthcare is ready to serve as an additional resource to clinics utilizing ARTs products and technology. We are a team of experienced oncology administrative and clinical veterans who relish the opportunity to wade through the details to get to the core problem of pre-authorization delays and payment denials ensuring that physicians can utilize the best technology for their patient's needs and the health care facilities in which they practice will equitably be paid for the care they deliver," Christopher Gonzalez, Co-founder of Apollo commented.
