SEATTLE (March 4, 2014) FlexMinder, a fast growing startup that automates costly manual healthcare reimbursement processes, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Alegeus Technologies, the market leader in healthcare and benefit payments.
Alegeus offers the industry’s most widely-used technology platform for the administration of tax-advantaged benefit accounts – including FSAs, HSAs, and HRAs. Through integration with FlexMinder, Alegeus clients will be able to receive automated insurance carrier claim data feeds within the Alegeus platform. Administrators can then leverage this data to drive unprecedented levels of automation for claims submission, adjudication, and reimbursement processes. This new functionality has the potential to significantly reduce claim handling costs, eliminate submission errors, increase participation rates, and raise client profitability.
“Our simple but powerful tool is cutting costs and eliminating headaches for our customers,” said Lowell Ricklefs, CEO of FlexMinder. “We’ve helped some TPAs cut their total processing costs in half while greatly reducing the hassle factor for benefit account holders. No more inefficient paperwork, time-consuming communications, or stressed out customers. This is a solution we’re proud to be part of.”
“Integrating carrier claim data into the benefit administrators’ workflow creates significant efficiencies for administrators by reducing the time and resources required to substantiate card transactions and adjudicate claims,” said Tom Torre, Alegeus Chief Executive Officer. “From the participant’s perspective, having the ability to view and manage claim data inside our portal, and to facilitate claim payments directly from their benefit accounts, is a very powerful value proposition.”
