Medical Mutual of Ohio is offering enrollees use of a Quicken Health Expense Tracker system.
Medical Mutual, Cleveland, is the first health plan to adopt the system, which was developed by Intuit Inc., Mountain View, Calif., and Ingenix, a unit of UnitedHealth Group Inc., Minnetonka, Minn.
In addition to retrieving and organizing claims and bills, the system can replace billing codes with plain English. Consumers also can use the system to pay the bills.
In related news, Consumers Life of Georgia, Atlanta, a Medical Mutual subsidiary, has developed a “real-time claims adjudication” system and tested it in four physicians’ offices.
The system can help patients find out what they owe for care and pay for care when they get the care.
Consumers Life added the RTCA system to its provider portal earlier this month.
