ClaimTek In the Press!
Small Business Opportunities Magazine recommended ClaimTek's program as one of the
top 10 home businesses to start.
The health insurance industry has become for many doctors, a troubled maze of forms,
claims, approvals and red tape. There are more than 1500 healthcare plans available
and physicians don’t have the full-time staff to process the more than 9 billion
claims that are filed each year in this country.
You can turn this nightmarish maze into a strong business opportunity by starting
a service business to process medical claims for physicians’ practices that cannot
handle the paper flow.
Medical claims specialists can charge by the claim processed ($1 to $3) or charge
the physician a percentage of the claim processed.
This is a business that you can run from home with the help of proprietary software
and marketing backup. One company offering a medical claims business opportunity
package is ClaimTek Systems.
The investment to start your own medical claims processing service ranges from $1,450
to $7,995. ClaimTek provides the software and marketing plans to help you establish
and run this business.
The company recommends that you have the following minimum requirements in terms
of software and hardware: 486 PC, a hard drive of at least 200 megs, an operating
system with DOS/Windows or Windows 95 to NT, a Hayes compatible modem with 9600-28,000
BPS, and a printer with the capability of 80 columns with compressed mode or 132
According to ClaimTek, physicians like to hire an independent agent to process claims
so they don’t have to hire full-time staffers to do the job, and they don’t have
to process tremendous multitudes of forms for the various healthcare plans they
are involved in for their patients. The software package also means that less errors
will occur than if the claims were processed manually, by hand.
There are 1.6 million healthcare providers in the United States and less than 30%
of them are now filing their claims electronically. The market potential for this
business is therefore huge.
