FRANKLIN, Tenn. and LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Passport Health Communications Inc. and Brightree LLC have announced a partnership to provide patient insurance eligibility verification as an integrated service within Brightree’s business management software solution

“Creating efficiencies to help providers get paid faster and get reimbursed on everything they bill is a major focus of Brightree.  We anticipate our partnership with Passport will save hundreds of man hours by allowing providers to check patient insurance eligibility within the Brightree system,” said Brightree President and CEO Dave Cormack.  “Passport’s wide breadth of payers and ease of enrollment made Passport a great choice for Brightree.”

Verifying coverage and benefits prior to service or product delivery increases the speed and accuracy of billing, reduces rejections and denials, improves staff productivity and increases cash flow.  Passport’s complete revenue cycle management solutions includes the industry’s most robust and detailed real-time eligibility access through extensive payer connections across the U.S.
