National Standard Could Give Electronic Billing Attachments a Boost
The key to ensuring quick payment of medical bills for injured workers is to electronically submit the attachments that are unique to the workers’ comp industry. And submitting electronic attachments could become easier following a public advisory board’s proposal to standardize the process. The National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics transmitted the recommendations to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell on July 5. The recommendations could be followed by rule-making on electronic attachments.
