DirectAssure

Your provider directory may advertise claims payment addresses for practice locations

Collecting and confirming provider data is a time-consuming and costly venture.

Providers are inundated with requests from payers for updated practice information while attempting to balance treating patients and juggling other administrative concerns. For some providers it all comes down to ensuring they are reimbursed in a timely fashion, this is why they will often default to using their claims reimbursement address in every ask for contact or practice information.
