InstaMed Member Payments Named Winner in Eighth Annual Paybefore Awards

Paybefore has selected InstaMed Member Payments as a 2014 Paybefore Awards winner in the Boundary Buster category. For eight years, Paybefore Awards has conferred the most prestigious recognition of excellence in the worldwide prepaid, mobile and emerging payments industry. The awards are presented annually by Paybefore, whose publications are the leading source of industry information for alternative payments executives.

“First Data is honored to be recognized as the program manager for the virtual prepaid cards provided by the Member Payments solution,” said Mark Putman, Senior Vice President of First Data Prepaid Solutions.

“Processing patient payments in a secure, compliant and convenient manner is one of the biggest challenges in healthcare,” said Bill Marvin, President and CEO of InstaMed. “Additionally, with the rise in healthcare consumerism, understanding and managing healthcare finances is one of the biggest challenges to consumers. Our Member Payments solution is a new and innovative payment channel that enables payers to create a simpler payment process for providers and patients.”

InstaMed Member Payments was selected by a panel of five industry experts who served as judges for this year’s competition, which – once again – included a record number of entries from around the world.

“An industry is only as good as its innovators. This year’s Paybefore Awards have demonstrated that prepaid, emerging and mobile payments companies always find new ways to address consumer, government and business needs,” said Loraine DeBonis, Paybefore editor-in-chief and chair of the judging panel. “We are proud to recognize InstaMed’s contributions to advancing the industry.”

“The companies and programs recognized in the 2014 Paybefore Awards are great examples of what can be accomplished when innovators apply thoughtfulness and payments technology to address real-world needs,” said Marilyn Bochicchio, CEO of Paybefore.

About Member Payments

The Member Payments solution addresses the challenges of healthcare consumerism by delivering a unique and innovative payment channel to connect patients to their providers for payment. With InstaMed Member Payments, providers get paid by patients automatically, based on the patient’s responsibility as determined by the claim adjudication process and upon the approval of the patient. As a result, providers get paid faster and more efficiently, without sending patient statements, which reduces administrative costs in healthcare. Providers can also set up automated posting to their billing system. The Member Payments solution is available free of charge with no incremental costs to healthcare providers.

InstaMed is independently audited, certified and compliant with state and federal regulations that govern the financial networks. InstaMed is HIPAA compliant and the only network to achieve full accreditations with the Healthcare Network Accreditation Program (HNAP) and the Financial Services Accreditation Program (FSAP) from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC).
