on Monday announced the integration of Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) and access to MedAvant’s Premium Portal Services for users of its medical practice management software for Mac OS X.
MacPractice MD, DC and 20/20 can automatically download the insurance carrier’s ERA information from MedAvant through its EClaims ability. It then associates each payment to a corresponding claim; this helps office personnel just approve the payment for automatic posting. MacPractice said that the cost of ERA is as little at $0.19 per insurance claim.
MedAvant’s Premium Portal Services provides doctor’s offices with online access to all their claims. Users can check claim status, edit a claim and resubmit it, and access reports and statistical data. It can also provide proof of timely filing to avoid denials of claims.
