My clients have unique billing needs, which require a specific plan and tier structure for each one.

Our Premium Billing solutions allow you to create unlimited plan designs and tier structures, with customizable eligibility, payment grace, and election periods. There are also unlimited options for subsidy and severance packages, and our solutions also accommodate all loss of coverage rules.

Cash management is overwhelming with so many incoming and outgoing payments.

COBRA administrationDataPath’s integrated cash management enables you to track all payments received and remitted, create checks, and issue refunds to participants. You can even process payments by credit card, auto-draft, and checking or savings accounts through our online portal.

I have to be able to bill to and record payments from third parties.

Our simple, straightforward “third-party payer” feature allows an entity other than the named policyholder to be invoiced for premiums. Specify the third-party billing entity during account setup, or create as needed per benefit billed. Receipts can be identified in the system by the actual payer, allowing any subsequent refunds to be made to the payer rather than the policyholder.
