- Pre-configured processes to manage each stage in the claims lifecycle including information gathering from third parties, eligibility rules, mandated timeframes for the initial claim decision, benefit approval authority limits and associated workflow and low-touch processing.
- Pre-configured claim intake scripts designed for use in both a call center environment and in the back-office where the ability to transcribe rapidly from a manually completed paper claim forms is key.
