HMS Employer Solutions Dependent Eligibility Audit Services Endorsed By The AHA

Stocks in this article: HMSY

HMS, a wholly owned subsidiary of HMS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:HMSY), today announced that its Dependent Eligibility Audit services from HMS Employer Solutions have been exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association (AHA). AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and healthcare organizations achieve operational excellence. Dependent Eligibility Audit services from HMS were selected for this endorsement following an extensive due diligence process.

On average, four to eight percent of dependents on an employer’s health insurance plan—and an even larger percentage for hospital employers—are not eligible for coverage. This represents a significant unnecessary healthcare expense for self-insured employers.

Dependent Eligibility Audit services from HMS help hospitals ensure that only eligible individuals are enrolled in the hospital’s health plan. This innovative cost-containment solution offers a guaranteed return on investment.

“As hospitals work to implement the policies of the health reform law, it is imperative that they balance the ability to attract and retain the best talent, while ensuring their money is being spent appropriately,” said Anthony Burke, President and CEO, AHA Solutions, Inc. “We explored a number of candidates that offer dependent eligibility audit services. Ultimately, we endorsed Dependent Eligibility Audit services from HMS because of its vast experience in the health care market and its employee-sensitive approach. The HMS system allows employer hospitals to ensure benefits are being spent on qualified dependents.”

HMS is proud to have been selected as an exclusive AHA partner,” said Maria Perrin, Chief Business Officer for HMS. “This endorsement speaks to HMS’s track record of success with employers across many industries, including hospitals. We look forward to working collaboratively with AHA members to help them achieve their cost-containment goals and ensure compliance with new and existing regulations.”
