The NexTalk TTY service, offered in conjunction with TMG Health's strategic sourcing solution or as part of a component solution for Member and Provider Call Center Services, is an advanced intuitive solution that can directly impact CMS Medicare Star Ratings and improve the member experience.

"Successful contact with a TTY service is a weighted measurement in the CMS Star Ratings for Medicare Advantage plans," said J.D. Yanek, Director of Customer Service at TMG Health's Amarillo, Texas Call Center. "By utilizing the hosted solution from NexTalk, TMG Health can positively influence our Clients' revenue stream by helping to maintain or increase their Star Ratings."

The TTY service offered by TMG Health and NexTalk ensures immediate response to member calls by vetting out misdials, providing multiple access points for TTY calls and eliminating the possibility of the member receiving a busy signal. The service features a two-way text conversation where all keystrokes are live between the member and the Call Center agent. In addition, all conversations can be stored electronically, making them readily available in the event of a government audit.

"NexTalk is pleased to partner with TMG Health with their strong commitment to service and technology to enhance the customer experience", said Gary Bowen, CEO of NexTalk.
