Bellevue, WA — Healthcare Management Administrators (HMA) is pleased to announce the introduction of a new reference based pricing product, Access Direct.
Access Direct offers brokers and groups across the Pacific Northwest an additional method for provider reimbursement, based on the actual cost of care, rather than network discounts. This option will enable HMA self-funded groups to forego a network and instead choose to set reimbursement using reference based sources such as Medicare. This is just one of many ways that HMA is revolutionizing its product offerings and services for the upcoming year.
“The Access Direct product will offer employers significant savings based on initial reimbursement projections,” Lindsay Harris, HMA’s Director of Product Management said. “Its introduction is just one of the product innovations that HMA is excited to roll out this year designed to give our groups more options to manage their healthcare expenditures.”
While reference based pricing is not new in many regions of the country, HMA is one of the first to offer this model in the Pacific Northwest. Access Direct is one of the several products HMA is launching to the market.
