Stop Paying to Get Paid: Effective Electronic Payments
September 16, 2014

The health care claims revenue cycle has increasingly moved from the use of paper checks to various forms of electronic payment.  Electronic payment offers the potential to save physicians significant time and money, but only if implemented properly.  Health plans currently offer numerous forms of electronic payments, each of which is associated with different risks and benefits.

In order to ensure that physician practices are able to realize efficiency improvements and financial savings, this webinar will provide attendees with the knowledge of electronic payments, an understanding of the 1/1/2014 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment regulation (including the rights and responsibilities of health plans), an overview of the implications of accepting virtual credit card payments, and an introduction on how to implement the new Automated Clearing House (ACH) EFT transaction into their practice.


The objectives of this webinar are to enable physicians to:

1. Initiate a review of their payments as related to EFT and virtual credit card usage.
2. Sign up for the HIPAA standard EFT payment using the ACH Network.
3. Provide staff and billing personnel important tips to help prevent unauthorized processing of inefficient payments.
4. Contact their banks and health plans to properly reconcile EFT payments with remittance information.
