Through Availity you can process patient payments, receive claim payments and receive electronic remittance advice all online.
Check Financial Responsibility
CareCalc® is the innovative tool in Availity that enables you to determine an estimate of a Florida Blue member’s financial responsibility in real-time. You can access the member’s out-of-pocket responsibility whenever they need it–prior to a visit, at the point of service or after they check out.
Via Availity your office staff can complete credit and debit transactions in real-time for copays or known deductibles and collect information for processing a future payment. Through the system you can accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, PIN-less debit cards and paper checks. You can also set-up recurring payments, installment payment plans, hold payment information for post-adjudication payment processing, void/credit payments, perform end-of-day settlements and run customized reports.
Receive Claim Payments
You can choose to receive your claim payments through electronic funds transfer (EFT). These funds will be directly deposited into your bank account much faster than by check.
