Edifecs Launches Automated Member Enrollment Solution for Medicare Advantage Health Plans

December 15, 2020 GMT

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 15, 2020--

Edifecs, Inc., a global health information technology solutions company, launched its Enrollment Management for Medicare Advantage solution to streamline automation of new member acquisition and enrollment processes for Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs). An alternative to manual touchpoints, the solution will improve operations through workflows, end-to-end enrollment lifecycle visibility and dashboard reporting for health plans looking to automate processes for Medicare Advantage enrollment.

The Medicare Advantage market continues to grow at steady rates (enrollment between 2019 and 2020 grew by about 2.1 million beneficiaries or nine percent, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation ), and competition between health plans continues to heat up. As such, participating health plans must continuously seek ways to differentiate themselves and reduce operational costs. Outmoded IT infrastructure and highly manual enrollment operations put constraints on market expansion initiatives and can negatively impact a new member’s initial satisfaction.

“Members determine the success for all health plans and it is critical for health plans to enroll members in a cost-effective, efficient and timely manner,” said Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs. “Members today are more involved in their healthcare and their expectations for quality service are high. This solution will solve the many challenges health plans experience operating legacy enrollment systems and outdated technology that can lead to exacerbated enrollment timeframes and a lack of enrollment visibility.”

Staying competitive in today’s health insurance market requires more than just cost reduction.
