AMERICAN FORK, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apex EDI, one of the nation's leading e-claims reimbursement companies for dental and medical professionals, today announced the release of an online patient eligibility verification solution, fully integrated with the Apex EDI OneTouch® e-claims reimbursement system, to provide faster claims processing and payments to healthcare providers. This new online eligibility verification solution gives healthcare providers a quick and easy way to quickly check individual patient's insurance coverage benefits prior to treatment, and eliminates the time consuming hassle of verifying patient eligibility by phone or visiting multiple websites, ultimately providing a one-stop solution for healthcare providers, wherein eligibility and claims are seamlessly processed with a higher degree of accuracy and speed.

Fully integrated with the Apex OneTouch® e-claims reimbursement solution, Apex now offers an eligibility solution that works in conjunction with many practice management systems. Healthcare providers will realize increased efficiency with the ability to process eligibility inquiries and receive verification through extensive payer connections and direct integration with providers' scheduling systems.

In addition, providers can run individual inquiries for walk-in patients or last minute appointments.
The new online eligibility solution also provides Apex clients with the benefits of real-time information exchange. By simply logging into the Apex OneTouch® system or from within an integrated practice management system, eligibility can be verified on a patient-by-patient basis whenever it is needed. Information is made available immediately, enabling providers to identify coverage and collect patient payments at the time of their visit.
