ClaimNet Inc.

Owners: John and Sue Ellerbee, Kelly and Cherie Ellerbee Address: P.O. Box 1072, Cabot, 72023, 1-800-747-1921 Start-up date: October 1991

Kelly Ellerbee says his family is getting in on a growing field.

The Ellerbees' new business, ClaimNet Inc., processes medical claims and provides insurance billing services for health organizations.

Ellerbee says ClaimNet is unique in that all claims and billings are done electronically.

He says their computer process saves businesses time and money by cutting down on the turnaround time usually involved with such paper work.

Ellerbee, his mother, Sue, and his wife, Cherie, all have backgrounds in insurance and data processing.

Ellerbee says his father, John, is primarily a financial partner.

"We were looking for something we could start at home and grow into an office location," Ellerbee says. "We are targeting central Arkansas at first, but we will eventually serve the entire state."

ClaimNet charges on a per-claim, per-statement or percentage basis, depending on the client's preference.

Ellerbee estimates the start-up costs of his business at $15,000.

Although the family currently is promoting ClaimNet through sales calls, direct mailings and advertisements in dental and medical journals, Ellerbee expects most business eventually will come through word of mouth.
