Has MEDiCLAIM been implemented in any other countries?

Electronic claiming is well established worldwide in countries such as the United States, Australia and the UK but MEDiCLAIM will only be available to the Irish Market.

Why have the 3 insurers decided to come together on this specific initiative?

All parties recognize the need to phase out the current inefficient paper claims process in favour of electronic processing.

International best practice demonstrates that MEDiCLAIM is the way forward, and it is imperative that the Irish healthcare industry develops its processes in line with these standards.

The aim of the project is to introduce an MEDiCLAIM industry standard so that claims can be submitted electronically in the same way to all private health insurers and to make paper claims a thing of the past.

How will this initiative increase the speed with which claims are submitted?

There are 2 ways in which claims will be processed faster by:

  • Reduction in administrative overhead: MEDiCLAIM will facilitate the implementation and integration of hospital solutions which will remove the requirement for transcription/transfer of paper claims. This electronic method will make it easier for the consultant to review and submit claims. Client Management Systems will pre-populate information for consultants to sign off
  • Availability of management information: managing electronic claims is faster and more productive than paper claims
Will you be charged a fee to submit claims electronically?
