It provides a wide range of cost- and time-saving features, including pre-configured support for the latest CMS 1500 and UB04 claims forms, ICD-9 and ICD-10 code databases and the HIPAA-compliant 5010 electronic data interchange (EDI) export format specified by CMS. It also conforms to the coding rules and standards defined by CMS and features documentation and instructions for customizing systems to meet user specific needs.
“Kofax Medical Claims Add-on Pack is a timely upgrade for existing users and perfect for insurance providers who need to replace an existing solution that is no longer CMS compliant or maintained by the original supplier. It helps reduce data entry errors and lower operating costs in time to address new CMS regulations related to the Affordable Care Act, which will take effect in January 2014,”said Grant Johnson, Chief Marketing Officer of Kofax.“It also enables users to gain operational insights that may not exist today by increasing the visibility of medical claims information throughout the organization.”
