The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) announced today that, following rigorous review, MRA has once again achieved the “Peer Reviewed by HFMA®” designation for its accident claims management solution, AcciClaim™.

MRA’s innovative AcciClaim solution enables hospitals to get fully-paid for Motor Vehicle and Workers’ Compensation accidents. Accident claims are only a small percentage of total claims but, when managed correctly, they can provide higher reimbursement rates than other financial classes. Hospitals often lack the dedicated resources and expertise to process these difficult-to-work claims. MRA’s AcciClaim solution bridges the gap by offering a leading team of specialized attorneys, revenue cycle experts and account resolution specialists supported by a proprietary, industry leading technology to deliver new revenue, improved patient satisfaction, and guaranteed billing compliance to the motor vehicle and work comp recovery industry.

“Accident claims management represents an often overlooked source of additional revenue for hospitals,” said Michael Ford, MRA EVP. “In addition, these claims, if handled incorrectly, can pose critical compliance concerns. We are proud that the HFMA Peer Review has once again recognized the quality of our solution and we look forward to continuing to help our hospital clients in the years to come.”

HFMA’s Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprising current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. The Peer Review status of the healthcare business solution and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

“We’re pleased to have MRA renew their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation for their AcciClaim solution” says HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. “The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value.”
