People like to pay online – it’s fast, it’s easy, and you can easily keep track of when each bill came in and when it was paid.
In fact, 64% of consumer bill payments were completed online in 2012, up from 49 percent in 2008, according to financial industry research and consulting firm Alte Group.
And now UnitedHealthcare members can add their medical bills to the list of bills they can easily manage online.
UnitedHealthcare’s new online bill payment service, known as myClaims Manager, is a secure way for patients to easily manage and pay their health care bills electronically. People can pay by entering their credit card, debit card, health savings account or bank account information, making the bill paying process significantly more convenient.
In fact, UnitedHealthcare is the first national insurance carrier to offer online bill payment capabilities that are fully integrated with their online claim information. Since a recent report from SK&A Information Services reports that one third of physician practices don’t accept credit cards, online bill payment through an insurer gives people more options of how to pay.
Designed in collaboration with InstaMed, the leading health care payments network company, the online system is available to UnitedHealthcare employers of all sizes and their employees and families. Furthermore, our entire network of health providers are eligible to sign up to receive online payments, which helps doctors get paid faster.
Of course, people can always pay the traditional way. But giving people the option to pay online is one way that we can make the health care payments system faster, more convenient, and easier to manage.
