PHOENIX, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Abrazo Media Relations -- American National Medical Management (ANMM), announces first ever patient-centric claims management alliance with The Center for Health Insurance Claims Advocacy (CHICA).
ANMM announced today that it has licensed a proprietary claims advocacy database management system formed with The Center for Health Insurance Claims Advocacy, a patients' claims management group that specializes in getting claims compensated in a timely manner with a proprietary process that enforces the legal terms of a patients health insurance policy.
Physicians cannot survive due to the exponential increase in the number of denied or underpaid patients' health insurance claims that are supposed to be paid to physicians for procedures that were authorized and completed. This creates an extremely difficult situation for both the physicians and the patients. These partially or fully denied claims take an enormous toll on the physicians and their practices, which leads to a dramatic increase in the costs to facilitate even the smallest claims.
"Physicians are at breaking point in their business survival as a result of underpayment and denial of managed care claims," states Gregory Maxon Maldonado. "The Center for Health Insurance Claims Advocacy is an organization with a proven track record for enforcing healthcare reimbursement regulations". With over 20,000 healthcare insurance claims violations identified and responded to, CHICA is the largest consumer healthcare claims advocacy group in the country and the only patient claims reimbursement advocacy organization supplying critical claims database violations to national class action litigation.
CHICA's proprietary claims oversight process which, among other technologies, uses existing law, extensive class action settlements, and federal and state claims settlement procedures database where the health insurance industry has already agreed to terms and conditions in paying claims as a result of the class action settlement.
"The patient must become proactive in their own claims process or the heath insurance industry business model will continue to transfer the money generated by health insurance premiums into its own pockets," said Gregory Maxon Maldonado. "We are here to ensure that the reimbursement nightmare for physicians does not get worse so that a doctor can provide quality care and not worry about if they are going to get paid."
