Ancillary Care Services Partners WLT Software
Mar 14, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Ancillary Care Services, a subsidiary of American CareSource Holdings, Inc., announced that its partnership with WLT Software is working as anticipated to streamline savings for third-party administrators and their clients.
According to a release, ACS provides TPAs and their clients with a national network of more than 34,500 provider sites in a range of traditionally high-cost categories, including dialysis, diagnostic imaging and infusion services. In a previously announced strategic alliance, WLT clients gained access to ACS' functionality and analytical tools, allowing them to better measure and identify opportunities for savings through the ACS network.
As part of the agreement, a software interface between WLT and ACS was created that allows WLT to demonstrate to clients - using the clients' own historical claims data - the potential savings in providing ancillary care by accessing the ACS network. Once a TPA, having seen the substantial value to its clients, selects ACS, the transition and implementation are seamless.
The company noted that, once onboard, WLT clients are able to use ACS' reporting package, which can be tailored to meet their specific needs.
"The ACS partnership with WLT clears the way for TPAs and their clients to access our national ancillary network and the proven healthcare savings it provides," said Bill Simpson, president and chief operating officer of ACS.
WLT Software is an international provider of benefit plan administration and medical claims processing software for insurance companies, government employee plans, TPAs and self-administered groups.
American CareSource Holdings is a national, publicly traded ancillary care network services company. The company offers a national network of more than 4,800 ancillary service providers at more than 34,500 sites through its subsidiary, Ancillary Care Services. ACS provides ancillary healthcare services through its network that offers alternatives to physician and hospital-based services.
