Triangle – ETOWAH, NC: Peter R. Meyer, president of Medical Business Associates (MBA), has announced that Medical Business Associates is now an approved vendor for Blue Cross Blue Shield direct claims submission in South Carolina. As a result of not going through a clearinghouse, MBA clients will see a decrease in the number of errors that occur in filing claims, a decrease in turnaround times and see an increase in profitability. Patients will experience increased accuracy in billing and quicker turnaround times.
We’re very happy to have added South Carolina Blue Cross Blue Shield to our list of direct carriers. We always want 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 larger room for errors, said Meyer. Filing claims direct with the carrier instead of through a clearinghouse, provides the quickest turnaround possible.
Medical Business Associates currently files directly to NC Medicare, SC Medicare, NC Medicaid, Railroad Medicare, SC Medicaid, Tricare North & South, NC 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.
