Expanding the connectivity network for the Fund for Reopened Cases

Morristown, NJ – September 3, 2014 -   iHCFA is pleased to announce a strategic e-billing partnership with the Special Funds Conservation Committee (the “Special Funds”) in New York. The Special Funds (specialfunds.org) is tasked with maintaining and defending the Special Disability Fund and the Fund for Reopened Cases under the New York Workers’ Compensation Law. iHCFA will provide a direct electronic connection to the Fund for Reopened Cases reducing the need for paper submissions of medical billing. Electronic billing (“eBilling”) expedites and ensures more timely medical bill payments from the Special Funds. eBilling is presently mandated for Workers’ Compensation in several states and is being implemented or evaluated in many more.

iHCFA is a leader in developing an integrated billing process for the electronic processing of worker’s compensation medical bills including support documentation. With nearly 15 years’ of experience, iHCFA is an innovator in helping customers use electronic billing solutions to solve problems, streamline processes, increase productivity and reduce costs.

William DeGasperis, CEO and president of iHCFA stated, “We are pleased to have become a strategic partner with the Special Funds Conservation Committee. iHCFA has just been awarded a five (5) year contract, validating once again our leading-edge technology.  We look forward to sharing the benefits of our new affiliation with our direct electronic connection with Special Funds, while providing the best product and customer service for electronic billing needs.  The technology-based solutions we provide are a win-win situation for all.”


“iHCFA and the Special Funds Conservation Committee share a common vision as to the use of technology to streamline the paper-intensive processing interfaces involving Workers’ Compensation medical bills ,” states Karen Allen, Chief Operating Officer for the Special Funds Conservation Committee. “Our organization is continually exploring ways to streamline the medical bill payment process and we expect iHCFA’s direct connection to assist in providing great service.”
