Plexis Healthcare Systems recently announced the release of Plexis Claims Manager (PCM) Version 8. The new upgraded version provides an enhanced benefit plan tree structure that significantly facilitates benefit plan building and claims processing. Clients now have the flexibility to create multilevel benefit plans where benefit groups may contain additional group levels and benefit classes/exceptions. Also, copayments and coinsurance amounts can now be overridden using a hierarchical benefit structure.

Additional payment methodologies were added to price using the CMS Physician's Fee Schedule and integrated support for prospective pricing methods DRG and APC. In addition, PCM now supports processing of claims using the CMS Anesthesia flat rate pricing methodology and the CMS Assistant Surgeon Rule.
