Manual processing in Medicare Advantage (MA) billing leads to errors and inefficiencies, especially with repetitive tasks such as:

  • Enrollment processing and eligibility verification: Verifying member information and eligibility can be time-consuming and prone to human error.
  • Premium calculations: Complex calculations for monthly premiums, including retroactivity related to CMS enrollment, LIS or LEP changes, can lead to mistakes if done manually.
  • Invoice generation and payment posting: Manually generating invoices and posting payments can be tedious and inefficient, impacting cash flow and member satisfaction.

Mirra's TPA Premium Billing solution combats these challenges by automating these critical workflows. The features of our solution allow you to:

  • Automatically process enrollment and verify member eligibility against real-time databases, minimizing errors and freeing up staff for more strategic tasks.
  • Ensure regular auto-update of invoices for all retroactivity related to CMS enrollment, LIS or LEP changes
