NATIONAL DATA ANNOUNCES NEW HEALTHCARE ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION SERVICE

 ATLANTA, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- National Data Corporation (NYSE: NDC) has announced the release of EasyClaimPLUS(TM), a new service that allows healthcare providers to verify insurance coverage and to accept credit and debit card payments using a single point-of- sale terminal.
 The new service combines NDC's EasyClaim(TM) real-time eligibility verification system with its NETS+(R) electronic credit card processing and check guarantee software. With EasyClaimPLUS, NDC has expanded its offerings for the physician and hospital markets.
 Payors are replacing conventional paper identification certificates with new plastic eligibility cards. These cards, similar to a credit card, give healthcare providers real-time access to a patient's insurance information to check eligibility status and obtain information on service limitations, HMO coverage and third-party insurance. Providers use the NDC EasyClaimPLUS point-of-sale terminal to submit real-time eligibility inquiries through the NDC network.
 "The Clinton administration's healthcare reform proposal calls for each American to be issued a health security card, which will encourage providers to verify insurance coverage electronically," noted Richard S. Cohan, senior vice president of healthcare business development. "EasyClaimPLUS gives unautomated providers an inexpensive, easy-to-use method of submitting real-time eligibility verification requests." He added, "The EasyClaimPLUS terminal's credit and debit card features also permit physicians and other providers to offer multiple payment options to their patients with the same device."
 National Data Corporation is a worldwide provider of value-added application systems and services for the healthcare market.
