Optimizing Reimbursement Support Programs with eBV — Best Practices for Utilizing an Evolving Technology


Product-specific benefit verifications (BVs) are an important service many manufacturers make available to patients, usually as part of an overall reimbursement support offering. Today, most BVs are performed using a counselor-based process involving a phone call to the payer. But, interest and experimentation on new methods known as electronic benefit verification (eBV) are emerging, with the promise of faster turnaround, improved experience and enhanced accuracy. In this session, explore the benefits as well as the limitations that should be considered when implementing this technology.
- How do eBVs work and what are the current limitations 

- Which critical questions do you need to ask before beginning an eBV implementation 

- Next steps on how best to leverage eBV in targeted reimbursement support programs
