Ancillary Care Services Touts Partnership with WLT Software
Mar 14, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Ancillary Care Services, a subsidiary of American CareSource Holdings, Inc., announced that its growing 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 wide 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, the companies said, a software interface between WLT and ACS was created that allows WLT to easily 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.
Once onboard, WLT clients are able to use ACS' comprehensive 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.
"We expect to add more new accounts in 2013 through our relationship with WLT," Simpson said.
WLT Software is a provider of benefit plan administration and medical claims processing software for insurance companies, government employee plans, TPAs and self-administered groups.
