Brief steps on how the system works 

  1. A service is authorized for a member 
  2. The agency employee arrives for a visit
  3. The employee checks into the AuthentiCare system using 
    • Member’s landline phone
    • Employee smart phone using Authenticare application 
    • Tablet issued by agency
    • Employee enters ID and code for service (s) when clocking in/out. 
  4. Geo-location is used to validate the clock in/out location from the smart phone or tablet.
  5. A database of pre-authorized services is referenced to verify that the service has been pre-authorized 
  6. The employee performs the service
  7. The employee checks out using the same process 
  8. Claims will be available for the provider’s review via the AuthentiCare website
  9. After the provider’s review, the provider may confirm the claim
