Timely Reports

Business Need

Life insurance providers often need to obtain medical records and/or attending physician statements as part of their underwriting process. This step in the underwriting process can often lead to significant delays in policy issuance and/or inability to complete the underwriting process.

Additionally, the operational workflows necessary to administer this reconciliation is extremely manual and costly. This leaves insurance producers (agents) and prospective clients frustrated in dealing with the underwriting process. It can also lead to higher policy issuance costs and/or lost business opportunities for the insurance provider.

Managed EDI Gateway

Solution

LifeEDI™ utilizes existing EDI processes and channels to streamline document flow and communication between medical providers and insurance companies, while maximizing efficiencies in time, cost and user functionality.

Our parent company WorkCompEDI handles EDI processing for the vast majority of the P&C market (workers’ compensation, auto & personal injury) between submitters (doctors, hospitals, clinics, billing companies), receivers (insurance payors, bill review firms, PPO networks) and vendors (clearinghouses, practice management software, EMR/EHR systems and others).

LifeEDI™ leverages those existing relationships and infrastructure connections to offer a 2-way communication channel between medical providers and insurance companies to facilitate the receipt, organization and delivery of life insurance documentation.
