What is happening? To date, we have provided support and access to multiple clearinghouses through the Futura system. We have been happy to provide this service, but the time has come when the burden on our resources exceeds the fees we charge our clients. As of July 1, 2017, all clients using a clearinghouse other than ZirMed (Ie: Emdeon, CEDI, Trizetto) will be charged an additional $99/month per clearinghouse.
Who does it effect? This change effects all Futura customers utilizing a Clearinghouse other than ZirMed.
Is there an Alternative? We have worked hard to find an alternative that has technical experts, in-house support, and technologically and financially superior products. Through our efforts, we have negotiated a contract with ZirMed. If you choose to utilize ZirMed, you will no longer have to go through our support staff to gain access to your clearinghouse. In addition, we will not charge you the additional $99 fee because of the support they provide.
What If I Utilize Multiple Clearinghouses?
You will be charged $99 per clearinghouse. So for example, if you use Emdeon and CEDI, you will pay an additional $198/month.
I still need Clearinghouse support, what do I do?
We will still provide you support if you are on one of the clearinghouses, but you will be charged the additional fee. The alternative is to partner with ZirMed, as they have their own in-house support and technical experts.
What can I do to not pay the fee?
We have worked hard to find a clearinghouse that we can give our stamp of approval. Through this search we found that ZirMed provides top notch customer support, they have in-house technical experts, and they have a product that is technologically and financially superior to the competition. If you partner with ZirMed as your Clearinghouse, you will not be charged the additional fee.
