Last year another of the major insurance companies – Vitality – announced they were no longer accepting paper invoices.
For years, MHM has argued paper invoices should be avoided. We submit invoices electronically. It has saved a fortune in postage costs.
They are produced much quicker and cheaper than in paper form.
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 however that consideration is given to sending a paper invoice to an insurance company. Regardless of whether they allow it or not.
MHM supports those insurance companies who insist as part of them granting recognition invoices to them are electronic only.
