Electronic Fund Transfer - EFT
What is Electronic Fund Transfer?
EFT is the best way to collect money on time - ELECTRONICALLY! Even when the waiting
room is overflowing with patients, the doctor's overdue receivables are often lagging.
More than 30 percent of Americans don't have health insurance. Those that do still
often pay 20% co-insurance. Many doctors don't collect 50% of the monies owed them.
Indeed, one doctor states that 69 percent of his receivables were more than 90 days
past due! Many doctors often carry tens of thousands of dollars on their books,
knowing there's a good chance they'll never see this money. Doctors know they'll
treat people who can't or won't be able to pay.
BUT THERE IS A SOLUTION: EFT
EFT to collect money from patients...
EFT is the transferring of funds from one bank savings or checking account to another
account. This electronic transfer process is also known as: Funds Sweep, Direct
Debit, Direct Credit, and Direct Deposit, Automatic Checking, Automatic Payment,
ACH Processing, etc.
EFT software and ACH processing by ClaimTek Systems provide automatic payments for
medical billing services of all sizes. The EFT software allows you, the billing
service, to process automatic deductions from the patient checking or savings account.
These automatic deductions are pre-authorized for a specific amount and specific
day of the month. The funds are then electronically deposited into the doctors'
account. For the patient, it's a monthly bill that he or she can budget for, knowing
they are staying on top of their bills. For the doctor, it a steady revenue stream
of formerly uncollected payments. This process allows doctors to collect monies
owed without harassing or alienating patients or waiting months. You, the billing
service, typically charge $1.50- $2 per transaction.
You control the payments with our software and send the data files to our EFT processing
center. We process the data through the ACH and deposit the money into your doctor
client's account on time. We provide complete and accurate reporting of every transaction.
The Automated Clearing House (ACH) is the electronic network to which 95% of the
nation's banks belong to - including the Federal Reserve.
