Business-to-business (B2B) disbursement methods have come a long way since ACH/EFT, and not a moment too soon. Healthcare payers and third-party administrators (TPAs) are seeking to go beyond those tried-and-true methods and find alternative ways to optimize financial performance and increase workflow automation. When done right, real-time payment options can boost provider satisfaction. However, payers need to ensure they address the additional pieces to the puzzle, such as tying the payment to the recipient provider, enabling real-time access to claims, and posting to patient accounts.
