MD On-Line Expands Connection with Aetna for Direct Claim Submission
MD On-Line, Inc., a leading healthcare technology company focused on providing inventive products for electronic health care transactions between providers and payers, announced it has expanded its relationship with Aetna to take in a direct connection for claims processing as of October 1, 2007. Aetna is a leading diversified health care benefits company with more than 15 million medical members across the nation.
Previously this year, the two companies established a connection permitting participating Aetna providers to get hold of real-time information on insurance eligibility and the position of patient deductibles through MD On-Line's ACCE$$ (TM) product. Additionally, this connection offers providers the opportunity to track claim status and receive electronic remittance advice information.
Bill Bartzak, President and CEO of MD On-Line, noted the new direct connection to Aetna for claims would hasten claims processing and payment collection for providers. Adding "Our company is committed to strengthening our relationship with payers such as Aetna in order to provide a premium service for providers focused on maximizing their cash flow and increasing the accuracy of submitted claims."
