TeleClaim -- MCP Electronic Billing Software for Providers

MCP has developed its own claims preparation and reconciliation software, TeleClaim, that allows providers to electronically prepare claims for medical and dental services. This includes Medical In-Province, Medical Out-of-Province, Radiology, Dental Claims, Surgical Dental, and Alternate Billing Claims (ABS).

TeleClaim must be used in conjunction with TRANS, MCP's communication software package. TeleClaim and TRANS are provided free of charge.

TeleClaim performs limited edit checks on the data entered for each claim. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure that claims are correct.

It is necessary that users have basic knowledge of computers and the Windows operating system being used, such as navigating menus, copying and pasting files, altering printer settings, etc.

MCP will provide TeleClaim support by telephone and / or email. MCP will not provide support for hardware, network, or operating system issues, or provide support for other software packages. It's recommended that you seek the assistance of an IT professional for installation and ongoing support.
