New Medical Bill Review and Payment Vendor
Montana State Fund processes approximately 145,000 medical bills every year for injured workers. To carry out this task, we contract with a vendor to review these medical bills and issue payments directly to medical providers.
Beginning January 1, 2019, we will be contracting with Rising Medical Solutions (RMS) for these services. RMS, which is based in Chicago, currently processes 1 million medical bills annually with over $1.1 billion in annual charges.
The advantages of RMS include the acceptance of electronic billing, issuing Electronic Funds Transfer payments to medical providers, as well as offering streamlined and efficient review and processing for Montana State Fund claims examiners.
We look forward to our new partnership with RMS. If you have any questions about Rising Medical Solutions or the implementation of these services, please contact MSF Medical Services Director, Michele Fairclough or 406-495-5362.
