WLT SOFTWARE AND PAYER COMPASS STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP ANSWERS THE CALL FOR REFERENCE-BASED PRICING RESOURCES

Plano, TX, May 5, 2017– WLT Software, a provider of automated benefits administration solutions, reveals a new partnership with pricing and reimbursement technology entity, Payer Compass, LLC, that yields real-time claim pricing capabilities to support the healthcare market’s shift to reference-based pricing.


The collaboration removes the process of EDI, Electronic Data Interchange, batch processing and replaces it with an automated real-time Application Program Interface. Standard EDI batch processing is made up of a series of data file exchanges that result in limited reporting and functionality at a delayed pace. Payer Compass’s API web call fully integrates into WLT’s system and gives users complete visibility to not only the pricing but the edits applied in the process with immediate timing.

“This is an exciting initiative combining WLT’s adjudication system and Payer Compass’s Medicare Reference-Based Pricing model,” says Greg Everett, President/CEO of Payer Compass, LLC, “This new process will allow WLT and Payer Compass to empower this increasing market segment.”

Shelley VanEtten, Co-president, WLT Software added, “This new partnership represents our belief that the future requires a new operating model as real-time response becomes a necessity of doing business. As such, our goal is to collaborate with the best service providers available like Payer Compass that allow us to move in this direction. ”
