Payer portal project expands to New Jersey
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Feb. 22, 2010
America's Health Insurance Plans is expanding its multipayer portal project, which launched in Ohio last year, to the state of New Jersey.
AHIP is teaming up with New Jersey's largest health plans, which represent more than 95% of the state's residents, to launch a Web portal at which physicians can conduct all their financial transactions with payers.
In addition to financial transactions, the portal, built by technology vendor NaviNet, also will provide a one-stop service where practices can check eligibility, benefit information and deductibles, and receive real-time information on the status of claims.
Also participating in the project is the Medical Society of New Jersey and other specialty physician organizations. AHIP is working with the BlueCross BlueShield Assn. to launch similar pilot programs in several regions and states across the country.
