RMS, First Citizens Bank Partner To Offer Automated Heatlhcare Payment Processing

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Revenue Management Solutions, LLC (RMS), announced today a partnership with North Carolina-headquartered First Citizens Bank that will provide an automated payment and remittance processing service for the bank's healthcare provider clients.

This service helps healthcare organizations manage all their paper and electronic remittance transactions by consolidating them in a single data stream. Payments and remittance information sent as paper, such as explanation of benefits (EOBs), checks and electronic payments, are converted into one standardized electronic format, which helps reduce costs and improve efficiencies for healthcare providers. This service is offered to the bank's healthcare clients through First Citizens' Business and Treasury Services department.

"First Citizens is a leading provider of financial services to the healthcare industry," said Richard Smith, manager of product development for Treasury Services at First Citizens. "A large number of clients still receive paper EOBs, which slows down their collection efforts. We are partnering with RMS to provide an electronic solution that will help healthcare providers save time and money. We look forward to working with RMS to provide our customers with this innovative technology."

The First Citizens and RMS partnership offers customers Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) reconciled and balanced in a HIPAA-compliant industry file format (EDI 835) to post into their practice management software. 

"We are very excited to work with First Citizens Bank in delivering a total remittance solution to their healthcare clients. We believe their customers will greatly appreciate the savings and efficiencies afforded to them as a result of this partnership," Scott Thomas, CEO of RMS, said.
