Lost remits and the time-consuming process of posting payments manually translate into costly delays and unrealized revenue. With ZirMed’s Remits solution, you’ll receive all your remits electronically—from all payers, and in one system.
Ineligible patient insurance coverage causes more than 75% of all claim rejections and denials by payers. And logging in to multiple payer websites for eligibility information is a time-consuming hassle. Quickly and easily verify patient insurance coverage and co-pay amounts up front with ZirMed Eligibility Verification.
More than half of all bad debt in medical organizations typically comes from outstanding patient balances. And patient financial responsibilities continue to soar—thanks to high-deductible plans, larger co-pays, and more uninsured patients. Accurately estimate total patient financial responsibility up front with ZirMed Patient Estimation—and collect payment before you provide service.
