SuperCoder Improves Scrubber for UB04 to Meet Facilities’ Claims Scrubbing Needs

“The powerful facility scrubber integrates directly into facilities’ clearinghouse workflow, helping to submit clean claims, reducing denials and boosting revenue.”

Online PR News – 29-March-2014 – DUrham/NC – SuperCoder has revamped its Scrubber for UB04 to help facilities keep up with changing medical coding and billing regulations, streamline claims processing workflows, identify missed revenue opportunities and reduce denials by pre-fixing billing and coding errors. “With SuperCoder’s Scrubber for UB04, you will never have to be concerned about a missed update or regulation. This tool can even run hundreds of medical edits and code pairs for every single claim,” informs Jen Godreau, CPC, CPMA, CPEDC, & AHIMA-certified ICD-10 trainer, director of development and operations for, a division of the Coding Institute.
This scrubber checks the accuracy of the data entered – including insurance information, procedure and diagnosis codes, patient demographics, date of service, and more – before the claim is submitted to the payer. “With this scrubber you don’t have to spend hours looking for information on the services provided to a patient. It will sniff out missing charges and even remind you of facility codes you may have missed. You just need to enter your encounter data into our electronic version of the UB-04 to get instant checking,” Godreau informs.

This UB04 scrubber also provides the complete list of revenue codes so that users don’t need to remember the exact revenue code or look up other places to get to the most appropriate code. It also provides the complete lists of “Type of Admission” and “Type of Bill” codes to help users narrow the appropriate codes faster.

The pre-clearing house scrubs claims for top denial triggers and suggests compliance-boosting fixes such as:

Code Validation: Checks if an ICD-9 code or ICD-9 Vol.3 code is valid for date of service and ensures claims are not denied because of missing 4th or 5th digit.
• Coding Guidelines: Prevents claim denials from E code misordering and V code incorrect order.
• Medicare Inpatient Code Edits: Warns of denials due to ICD-9 code and gender conflict, ICD-9 Volume 3 code and age conflict, and ICD-9 Volume 3 code and gender conflict.
• Patient Demographics: Checks age, date of service and gender.
• Validates POS

Providing more details of the UB04 scrubber, Godreau says, “The tool comes with an easy-to-use UB04 like interface and easy-to-follow instructions to solve facility coding errors. It decreases costs of re-filing denied claims, and provides real-time results for easier pre-clearing house fixes. Plus, it is 100% HIPAA compliant facility coding solution.”

“The tool is conveniently priced at just $499.95 annually. To see how the tool works, users can send a request for a demo at,” Godreau concludes. For details, visit this page:
