Etowah, NC –Peter R. Meyer, president of Medical Business Associates (MBA), has announced that Medical Business Associates is now an approved vendor for Bankers Life direct claims submission. With no clearinghouse involved, MBA clients will see a decrease in turnaround times, a decrease in the number of errors that occur in filing claims and an increase in profitability. Patients will also experience quicker turnaround times, as well as increased accuracy in billing.
“It’s nice to continue to grow our list of direct carriers. Filing claims direct with the carrier instead of through a clearinghouse, provides the quickest turnaround possible,” said Meyer. “It’s always best to use the most direct method possible for filing a claim. The more steps a claim goes through to get to its final destination, the more likely it is that errors may occur. It is of great benefit to us and our clients to be an approved vendor for Bankers Life.”
Medical Business Associates also currently files directly to NC Medicare, SC Medicare, NC Medicaid, Railroad Medicare, SC Medicaid, Tricare North & South, NC BCBS, SC BCBS, United Health Care, Cahaba GBA, CEDI, CIGNA, Aetna, Great West, AARP and Humana. By directly filing claims, the possibility of a clearinghouse dropping a batch of claims or having problems translating HIPPA compliant files to legacy formats that many carriers still use is eliminated.
