ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ABC Coding Solutions announces ZipClaims.com, a new online claim filing system, designed to empower over 2 million healthcare practitioners to transmit standard medical billing. Claims data from the system will also identify cost effective options to medical care. According to the company, ABC codes help bring non-physicians into the insurance-industry mainstream.
“We found that nurses, counselors, chiropractors and many other integrative health professionals are frequently not reimbursed by insurance companies. Without ABC codes, these professions are often reimbursed at the wrong rate and their payments are delayed. With ZipClaims.com - powered by ABC codes and new coding technology - all that will change,” explained Melinna Giannini, CEO of ABC Coding Solutions.
ZipClaims.com is currently targeting holistic practitioners who do not file Medicare claims. These providers can immediately file standard electronic claims to private insurance companies. By 2nd quarter of 2008, ZipClaims.com will be serving practitioners who bill both private and Medicare insurers.
ZipClaims.com offers non-physician professionals thousands of precise ABC codes to accurately document their care. Before ZipClaims.com, these professionals had to rely totally on a limited number of medical codes that do not accurately describe their treatments. ZipClaims.com removes the coding barrier by mapping ABC codes and related technology to HIPAA mandated medical codes required for electronic medical billing. These ZipClaims.com features generate claims that are less expensive to process and easier to pay.
“The results for my clients have been great,” remarks Ephimia Morphew-Lu, M.S. Psy, C.N., Nutritional Psychologist. “Major insurance companies and health plans are reimbursing my clients for the first time.”
