Benefits of InstaMed

  • Possible reduction in accounting expenses - By importing electronic remittance advice from the Web directly into practice management or patient accounting systems, the need for manual re-keying is reduced or eliminated.
  • Improvement in cash flow - Electronic payments can mean faster payments, resulting in improved cash flow. Paper checks will be discontinued upon enrollment.
  • Control of bank accounts - Maintain total control of the destination of claim payment funds; multiple practices and accounts are supported.
  • Prompt match of payments to remittance advice - Immediately associate electronic payments with electronic remittance advice. View remittance advice online and print it at your convenience.
  • Increase in reporting functionality - Ability to create functional reports that support your internal needs.
  • Easier management of multiple payers - Reuse enrollment information to connect with multiple payers. Assign different payers to different bank accounts, as desired.
