Bristol Healthcare Expands its Prior Authorization / Gap Authorization Services Wing

Los Angeles, California Nov 18, 2021 (  – Bristol Healthcare Services, a medical billing and coding company located in Los Angeles, California, is pleased to announce the expansion of their prior authorization/gap authorization services wing.

Bristol Healthcare has been signing up more clients in the recent past who want prior authorization and gap authorization services. “With more clients requesting this particular service, we have decided to expand this wing to better serve our esteemed clients,” says Jay Ganesh, CEO of Bristol Healthcare Services.

Some medications and treatments may need approval from payors before a patient receives care. Prior authorization (PA) is usually needed if a patient requires complex treatment or prescription. In such cases, the process of seeking prior authorization should not be delayed. For gap authorization, a request is made to the payor to honor the patient’s in-network benefits even though they are seeing an out-of-network provider. Persistence may be required to make certain that the patient benefits eventually.

With more care being needed to ensure that prior authorization and gap authorization services are successful, the company has expanded this wing duly appointing an experienced person, Benziger Fernandez, to head this wing. “The newly expanded team consists of billing professionals with a proven track record of successfully interacting with payors. In the case of gap authorization, rigorous follow-up is required to make sure the cost of service is reimbursed” says Jay Ganesh, CEO.

Bristol Healthcare offers streamlined and seamless assistance for prior authorization and gap authorization. The team collects information about the procedure/service to be rendered to the patient and checks the patient’s insurance eligibility. The PA/ Gap authorization request is then initiated with the payor. Follow-up with payor and provider is continuous. Additional documents, if needed by payors are obtained from providers and submitted to them. Bristol Healthcare ensures that its clients are reimbursed fully for the services they render. In serving providers, the company gets to serve their patients also.


Bristol Healthcare Services is one of the leading medical billing and coding companies. The company has been serving medical professionals for over twenty years, helping them increase their revenue and keep their cash flow consistent. The entire gamut of revenue cycle services is offered at cost-effective rates; practices can save up to 50% of costs. The company believes that physicians should be reimbursed fully for the services they provide and is committed to assisting them to take their practice to the next level.
