“The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has awarded the Purchased Care Health Care Claims Processing solicitation to Document Storage Systems, Inc. (DSS). The Veterans Administration, where medical appropriateness and/or distance from care are an issue, contracts medical services for our nation’s Veterans. DSS, Inc. combined resources with partners Complete Medical Systems, MEGAS, Unicor Medical, and VistA Revenue Solutions to create the Fee Basis Claims System (FBCS). FBCS transforms the highly labor intensive, manual process of adjudicating Fee claims into a seamless electronic workflow.

FBCS converts paper handling into a technology process that allows for automated workload assignments, automated claim scrubbing and smooth claim flow, hands-free acceptance of EDI claims for processing and superior data capture for reporting. These new capabilities translate into faster claims processing, better management tools, increased productivity and overall reduction of fee payments. FBCS will play a key role in improving the payment timeliness of veterans’ purchased care claims.
