Improve experience, reduce costs
Health insurance companies face a unique set of challenges when it comes to the receipt and disbursement of payments and remittance advice. PNC Healthcare takes the time to understand your unique business requirements and information systems, and then offers technology solutions to help you become more efficient.
Your existing processes of paying members via check is costly and often leads to unclaimed funds and escheatment hassles. Work with PNC to develop a better strategy for your consumer payments that electronically disburses payment to your members and allows them access to funds in near real-time. Payments can be distributed electronically via the Zelle network, reverse debit card, pre-loaded card, or check.
Paying providers can be cumbersome based on the sheer number of National Provider IDs that you pay on a monthly basis.
HIPAA regulations also require that you meet specific requirements for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) delivery. As a bank and a clearinghouse, PNC consolidates the delivery of the EFT and ERA, performs provider enrollment on your behalf, and offers customer service support for your providers through our CAQH CORE-certified Remittance Advantage product. PNC can also print and mail checks or card payments along with the explanations of payment to the provider.
Healthcare regulations are constantly evolving and often create high volume, ad-hoc payment requirements that you need to fulfill.
Given the non-standard nature of MLR payments, it is imperative to have a partner that can meet your needs with short notice. PNC’s payables solutions enable you to distribute these payments and unique remittance advice requirements in one comprehensive solution.
Each vendor is unique in terms of their relationship with you. It is essential to have all forms of payment (card, check, ACH, and wire) at your disposal and a financial institution that is well versed in advising you on when to pursue each type of payment.
PNC adds value by integrating our Payables Advantage solution with both your claims system and AP system to enable a more automated approval and distribution of these payments.
CDH accounts have become one of the nation’s fastest growing financial products. An intuitive, technologically advanced CDH solution that consolidates all account types in a single data base can help your individual membership and group employers improve efficiencies. It can also help improve your customer’s loyalty to your company.

Our integrated Print/Mail and electronic bill presentment solution enables your organization to provide this capability with one bill file to PNC and no required platform upgrades on your end. Your customers, both group and individual, will have the ability to elect to receive electronic statements through an online portal and automatically suppress future paper statements.
Your membership is looking for convenience in terms of the way that they pay you. Each individual member or group customer views payments differently so it is important that you make all options available. At PNC, you can consolidate each form of payment from your customer base into a single accounts receivable file that fully reconciles to your bank reporting.

With PNC’s technology, you can set up an automated process that electronically bills your customer base and that automatically debits their account all while offering them flexible options to review and approve their payments.
PNC understands that not every payment is standard. Our flexible AR Advantage platform enables unique data elements to be added to your received payments that will accelerate cash application.
