Eliminating Conflicts with Benefit Determinations
IROs and the third-party medical review industry, in general, have grown rapidly over the past few years. This is in part because the relationship between insurance companies and the physicians they employ as part of their review panel has been called into question due to potential conflicts of interest.
Addressing and eliminating conflicts of interest is vital to ensuring that patients trust the healthcare system and understand the costs that come with their care. In any case where there is the potential for a conflict of interest, a reputable independent review organization (IRO) will take the steps necessary to ensure that issue is negated.
