Electronic submission of bills and attachments provides another big step forward...
Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
iHCFA announced that it has completed an electronic interface for receiving electronic medical bills and supporting documents with strategic partner drchrono, a national leader in mobile, web-based billing, and electronic health record solutions for medical practices. Electronic billing (‘e-Billing’) expedites and ensures more accurate payments to health care providers, reducing billing errors and time-consuming phone calls to payers inquiring about the status of bills. This partnership between iHCFA and drchrono offers physicians a seamless billing process to submit bills with medical reports and other supporting documentation, including electronic receipt and delivery confirmation for billing to carriers not equipped to receive bills or documentation electronically. e-Billing is mandated for more complex Workers’ Compensation and no-fault automobile claims in several states and is being implemented or evaluated in many more.
iHCFA and drchrono are both leaders in applying technology that is intuitive, easy-to-use and creates high value without the large investments typically required to purchase and learn healthcare software applications. This technology interface offers an end-to-end electronic billing process for thousands of drchrono customers. William DeGasperis, president and CEO of iHCFA, stated, “We’re very pleased to have this interface completed and to be working with the talented group at drchrono.” iHCFA recently completed system enhancements that enable receiving all bills and documentation electronically, including billing to carriers that do not accept electronic attachments. “These enhancements let us offer our customers one electronic billing process for all of their claims, greatly simplifying their billing operations,” said Dr. DeGasperis.
Michael Nusimow, CEO of drchrono, stated, “Electronic submission of bills and attachments provides another big step forward for drchrono customers who already lead the health care industry using our mobile technology to manage clinical care, communicate with patients, and manage their business. We can now offer a truly paperless billing process, even for the paper-intensive medical bill processing interfaces of the Personal Injury marketplace,” he said. “The investment both organizations have made in e-Billing will have great benefits for thousands of our health industry customers located across the country.”
iHCFA is at the forefront of electronic bill and claims processing technology. iHCFA developers have extensive domain expertise in both the provider community and the insurance industry. iHCFA went live on July 1, 2000 and was created using state-of-the-art levels of technology and design, enabling access to and immediate application of web-based claims processing that was productive and efficient – a major technology accomplishment thirteen years ago. The system practically eliminates lost and incomplete claims for complex personal injury billing where medical documentation is required. iHCFA was the first company in the industry to be certified by the New York Workers’ Compensation Board as an EC-4 NARR XML Submission Partner and is the only company certified by the NY Workers’ Compensation Board to submit the Ancillary Medical Report (AMR) and the Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy (OT/PT) electronically to the Board.
