Last month another insurance company said it is no longer accepting paper invoices.
For years, MHM has argued paper invoices should be avoided. We have instead used the option offered by the majority of medical insurance companies. We submit invoices electronically. It has saved a fortune in postage costs.
They are produced much quicker and cheaper than in paper.
The amazing thing is that some private medical insurance companies still allow paper invoices.
Invoices for self-funding patients should always be mailed to a patient.
It is bewildering that consideration should still be given to sending one to an insurance company. Regardless of whether it is allowed or not.
MHM supports those insurance companies who insist invoices are sent electronically.
