As a result of the Affordable Care Act, insurance payers are under significant
pressure to adopt more efficient electronic processes for payments and communications to providers.
This has prompted the federal government to issue regulations mandating adoption of electronic payment methods by 2014. This mandate will help streamline the payment system from the insurance payer to the provider as well as an electronic explanation of payment.
By the end of 2013 you will be asked to go to electronic payment and communications with all your insurance payers. Contact Ann Deen at email@example.com with questions concerning transitioning to electronic payments.
