Electronic claims processing saves the healthcare industry time and money
St. Paul, Minnesota - January 17, 2012 - HHS estimates that administrative costs can be slashed by up to $4.5 billion due to the new standards for electronic funds transfers (released at the beginning of this month). This comes on top of mounting evidence showing that converting claims processing to electronic saves both time and money.
In the wake of these recent legislative changes, a majority of basic claims are now being processed electronically. However, nonstandard documents continue to lag behind as many are still being processed as paper.
