Here's an example to illustrate the cost effectiveness of using iClaims:
A small hospital may use the services of a billing department or an agency to submit their paper claims electronically. The hospital provides 10 claims - worth a net collection of Rs 200,000 - to be submitted to the insurance carrier.
If the billing department or agency spends 5 to 10 % of the net claims worth as administrative expenses or service fees, the total expenditure for the provider will be:
200,000 x .05 = 10,000 or 200,000 x .1 = 20,000M
With iClaims: In the same situation you would only be charged per claim. In this case, the provider would pay Rs 1000 for 10 claims. (@ Rs 100/Claim)
If it is on a monthly basis, may be Rs 10,000 max for all your claims put together.
