Checking eligibility requirements to order outpatient services for non affiliated providers

    Interested in how other facilities handles reviewing the eligibility for individuals not affiliated with your hospital who are ordering outpatient services.  Does your registration staff do this?  Do they do this each and every time an outside order is presented?  What databases are you checking and how do you log that you checked these?  Is there software out there to do this?  If you are a Meditech user is there any feature to assist with this?

    Thank you.
