VHBA partnered with Zelis to improve services, modernize processes, increase client value, and streamline member experience.

The Challenge

ValueHealth Benefit Administrators (VHBA) needed a partner solution that gave them the flexibility to create customized solutions while still bringing value to clients.

The Solution

After partnering with the Zelis team, VHBA replaced its time-consuming manual editing processes with automated bill review and audit to ensure pre-payment claims accuracy. Later, they expanded into other Zelis solutions, including out-of-network solutions, pioneering electronic payment options, and the Zelis DOCS® platform.

A 13-year innovative partnership that’s just getting started.

Providing affordable coverage for high-risk members.

Among several customized plans managed by VHBA are several state and federal plans that provide coverage for high-risk members with serious illnesses who can’t obtain insurance elsewhere.

To make affordable insurance available to these vulnerable member populations, VHBA collaborated with Zelis to develop cost-effective coverage plans and seek out new insurance networks.

Utilizing Bill Review, Claims Editing, Out-of-Network solutions, and other products, the partnership with Zelis has resulted in more than $21M in annual savings for VHBA.
