DentalXChange has announced a partnership with Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) to launch a co-branded online portal supporting electronic data interchange (EDI) for the dental community.
DentalXChange has designed and will operate the insurance company’s All Payer Dental Portal, allowing Humana’s dental providers to securely file insurance claims and conduct insurance-related transactions.
“Our goal in supporting Humana’s All Payer Portal is to improve utilization management and increase administratice efficiencies” Scott Wellwood
“Our goal in supporting Humana’s All Payer Portal is to improve utilization management and increase administrative efficiencies for providers,” explained Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange. “By increasing the speed at which providers of dental care can gather and utilize insurance information, we will be helping to improve the overall healthcare experience for patients, while accelerating revenue cycles for each of Humana’s dental providers.”
Through the portal, providers will have the opportunity to interact more directly with Humana, completing all dental EDI transactions at reduced or no cost. Features include the submission of claims and predeterminations, checking patient eligibility and benefits, obtaining the status of claims and receiving remittance information to balance claim payments. Transactions can be conducted directly on ClaimConnect or through integration with popular dental software programs.
“Humana is one of the nation’s leading health and well-being companies,” Wellwood said. “We look forward to working with Humana to further streamline the company’s EDI processes and reduce costs for their providers.”
“DentalXChange’s EDI tools will help empower Humana’s dental providers with the ability to eliminate paper and manage their entire revenue cycle, from eligibility verification before a patient’s visit, through the receipt of the electronic remittance advice and payment,” he added.
It’s happening again.
As of May 31st, the USPS is increasing the price of postage. Every year the price goes up and this year is no exception. Unfortunately, due to this rise in cost, the delivery of our paper statements will increase from .75¢ to .76¢ per statement.
But we’re not taking this increase sitting down!
To help offset the post office price gouging and to encourage the switch from paper to EDI, DentalXChange will be lowering the cost of our e-delivery statement service from $0.49 to $0.37 per statement!
That’s .39¢ less than a mailed statement!
To put that in context:
Let’s say you average 8 patients a day, 5 days a week. At the end of the month you are sending out 160 patient statements. That comes out to $121.60 in postage alone. Now, throw in the cost of printing and paper. Oh, and you have to pay an employee to stuff envelops. Doesn’t anyone remember how George Costanza’s fiancé died?!
E-Patient Statements electronic delivery is safe, fast, easy and now more affordable than ever. Those 160 statements can be e-mailed to your patients, saving you the cost of postage, printing, employee time and those dreaded envelops. Couple E-Patient Statements with PayConnect and you’ll be able to collect payment online!
This helps you get paid FASTER!
So to re-cap, we are lowering the price on our E-delivery service, making it easier for patients to pay you for services rendered and hopefully saving lives from toxic adhesive. This is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of this cost-savings option and not get squeezed by the USPS.
Take THAT post office!
