Prescription claim audits are among the most valuable reviews of self-funded employee benefits for improving plan performance and managing costs.
At TFG Partners, we’re one of the leading prescription claim auditing companies with highly effective proprietary software and methods. Our prescription plan audits review 100-percent of payments for unrivaled accuracy. When other companies are random sampling claims or cutting corners, we’re at work reviewing every payment electronically and with human oversight.
We pioneered many of today’s best practices and continuously improve them.
Following your prescription benefit plan audit with continuous monitoring using the same methods and software is the best way to manage your plan. Our plan audit reports and data are created strategic management tools that provide insight into prescription medicine benefits claim payments. They provide excellent oversight of third-party administrators and help in-house plan managers with detailed information. In the event of sudden cost increases or unexpected budget fluctuations, explanations are forthcoming with continuously monitored plans. The monitoring service typically saves more than it costs.
How are Prescription Claim Auditing Companies Different?
One of the things that set TFG Partners apart from many of our competitors is that we are specialists in the field. Our auditors who perform prescription drug audits work hand-in-hand with medical claim auditing services for self-funded plans. Large employers of many types, from corporate to institutional/nonprofit, depend on our expertise to keep their plans functioning better. We help our clients comply with ERISA and Sarbanes-Oxley audit requirements and any that exist at the state level. Because we review every prescription benefits claim every time, we are thorough and complete – with accuracy that random samples can’t match.
Our people come from large medical plan backgrounds and have a deep understanding of claim processing and the related software and methodology. We’re ahead of the curve with new methods and have pioneered many best practices that today are industry standards. We bring the same knowledge and expertise to your plan when we audit your prescription medicine claims. No matter which claims administrator you use, you can rest assured that we’re prepared to audit them with ease; we’ve worked with every company in the business. The consistent goal is to improve plan performance and manage costs.

Prescription Plan Audits Have Many Benefits
Every benefit plan for prescription drugs are unique and need to be followed closely. While TPAs easily promise to be detail-oriented in their work, only an independent prescription claim auditing company like TFG Partners can confirm it. For example, one of the most common ways for a plan to go off track is when scripts are written and claims paid for name-brand medicines when generics are available. It’s an easy catch for auditors and one that can save significant sums of money while making no difference in the outcomes for plan members – high-quality generics are widely accepted.
Also, not enough can be said about the value of conducting an rx audit for prescription plan claims. Furthermore, continuous monitoring following a claims audit can help members, especially those in high-deductible plans. Keeping a close watch for overpayments, double-payments, and other errors benefits members as well as the plan sponsor. When plans are not audited and monitored, it’s much more likely that claim administration is accurate. A well-run plan is the objective of every company, and in-house managers know the time it can take to recover payments made in error. It’s always a better approach to manage and audit closely and keep claim payments on track.
