There are a handful of other benefits of a claims management solution for your eyecare practice that include managing your claims with thousands of payers in one location, patient eligibility checks, claim status reports, real-time claim tracking, secondary claim submission, and detailed reporting and analytics. But today, we're just going to focus on one, and that's ERA Management.

ERA Management & Your Claim Management SolutionERA management

If you're not already utilizing ERA autoposting, you're probably still receiving this information in the form of paper EOBs. Technology is moving information to the computer, which will help you and your staff better manage the massive amounts of information that you keep in your practice. And that's not any different with claim filing. With ERA management, your system will automatically interpret remittance information received from your payers (which typically arrives in the form of a paper EOB), and deliver it to you electronically. Getting information in this format is easier to search and filter through than stacks of paper.
