New services: pre-authorized deposits, online services and claims checks
Members and Employees of benefit plans administered by Coughlin & Associates Ltd. can now have their health and dental claim reimbursements deposited directly to their bank accounts.
With Coughlin’s new Pre-Authorized Deposit (PAD) reimbursement program, members can receive their reimbursements within two to five days following the approval of their dental claims. They will not have to wait for the arrival of a cheque and a trip to the bank before depositing their reimbursement.
The new claims reimbursement program is designed to speed up the claims reimbursement process by reducing cumbersome paper-based systems that rely on standard postal services.
