Payer Connection Solutions for Healthplans & TPA’s
Today, receiving insurance claims electronically represents one of the many known cost saving measures available to insurance companies. While the industry has spent years perfecting electronic solutions, the majority of claims continue to be transmitted by paper with no electronic feedback loop for handling problem claims.

Tomorrow, the industry has the opportunity to leverage HIPAA as a means to realize the promised benefits of standard transactions. This includes not only claim submission, but, pre-determination of benefits, claim status tracking, and electronic reimbursement. These benefits are dependent on a physician’s office being connected to this electronic environment. Payer Connection’s understanding of the process has captured hundreds of organizations wanting to adopt our vision and strategy for HIPAA implementation.
Payer Connection has uniquely brought together the technology and administrative healthcare industry expertise to apply electronic transactions for automating critical business areas such as:
- Claim Submission
Secure electronic claim transmissions with translation from legacy formats to HIPAA standards for Professional, Dental, and Institutional formats.
- Business-Based Claim Editing
Reducing the number of claims delivered in error by implementing Payer specific rules and edits, user defined code crosswalks, and a user intervention workflow application to correct pended claims before and after submission.
- Automated Claim Status Tracking
Delivers updated claim status information for tracking and managing Payer requests for additional information, providing faster notification of rejects for non-eligible patients, and resubmission processing to correct pended claims.
Payer Connection works closely with Payers to develop a targeted effort directed towards transitioning their physician networks to the standard formats. We base our success on the ability to achieve higher utilization of transactions while reducing call volumes for benefit questions, pended claims, and requests for additional information. Our integrated transaction approach eliminates Payer concerns over typical pricing packages and delivers a measurable return on investment. The benefits are:
- Customized Payer Edits
Receive cleaner claims with real-time business edits that achieve higher electronic adjudication, with on-line correction and response to your requests for additional information.
- Flat Rate Pricing
Create predictable expense and tracking of value created by utilization of electronic transactions without risking volatile fees that add additional administrative overhead.
- Reduce Administrative Costs
Communicate electronically with your providers on pended claims that need additional information for processing, lowering your costs for mailing requests.
