WEB-TPA Renews Partnership with Solucient to Ensure Accurate, 'Real Time' Processing of Medical Claims.

Business Editors/Health/Medical/High-Tech Writers

EVANSTON, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 17, 2003

Solucient, the health care industry's leading provider of strategic business and clinical information, announced today that Irving, Texas-based WEB-TPA has signed a two-year agreement ensuring continued access to Solucient's Auto-Audit(TM) software.

WEB-TPA integrates Auto-Audit into its proprietary iii:PUT(TM) medical claims software system to ensure accurate processing of claims in a "real time" environment. This process has helped WEB-TPA continue to exceed industry standard service levels and maintain efficient operations.

Auto-Audit's editing capabilities give payers and third party administrators the ability to detect and correct coding discrepancies in medical claims submitted by providers, prior to payment. Solucient's Auto-Audit clients have historically identified 10 percent or more in cost savings to their organization.

"Auto-Audit has helped us deliver significant savings to our clients by applying defensible edits to incorrectly submitted medical claims," said Joe Pascullo, vice-president of Operations, WEB-TPA Employer Services. "The provider community has accepted the results of these edits, producing a significant decrease in medical claims appeals. Solucient has provided us with the information and confidence we need in our day-to-day interaction with providers."

"Solucient is delighted to continue working with WEB-TPA to ensure that payers and providers have a better understanding of the medical claims process," said Mark Manning, senior vice-president and general manager of Solucient's Managed Care unit. "We share WEB-TPA's commitment to 'simplifying health care' and look forward to providing the full value of Auto-Audit's capabilities."

WEB-TPA has been a Solucient client since 2000.
