Triangle – ETOWAH, NC: Peter R. Meyer, president of Medical Business Associates (MBA), has announced that Medical Business Associates is now an approved vendor for Medicare 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.
“Being able to file claims directly to the carrier, rather than through a clearinghouse, is the key to providing the quickest turnaround possible,” said Meyer. “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 greater the chance for something to go wrong. We’re very happy to have added South Carolina Medicare to our list of direct carriers.”
Medical Business Associates currently files directly to NC 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.
