First published Friday, July 2, 2021
The University awarded a contract for management services for network claims & payments.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
Innovista Health Solutions, is our current vendor for the management of services for processing the in network and out of network claims and payments for Campuscare program, BCBS HMOI, Blue Advantage and Blue Precision plans. The University did not include the appropriate funds for out-of-network claims in the original RFP award #MEC218. We need an Emergency while we appropriately amend the RFP# MEC218, during which time services must continue there was an increase in out-of-network claims due to COVID-19 since students were sent home and unable to use in-network providers at UI Health which caused an exhaustion of awarded funds Managed Care will be subject to penalties if they do not pay Innovista timely for their Managed Services responsibilities for adjudicating and paying claims.
