Press Release Summary: DiaTri secures Group Health contract with Union
Press Release Body:
DiaTri, LLC (parent organization to the companies of MDM, AAS, and DBM) has recently contracted with International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers, Local 17 to provide a Diagnostic Testing program for its Group Health Benefits members starting September 1, 2008. Diagnostic Benefit Management (DBM) is DiaTriís product line and division that creates diagnostic network solutions for Taft-Hartley Funds, employers, TPAs and insurance carriers in the Group Health industry.
Although the Fund members are familiar with a program similar to what DBM offers, they will experience higher levels of customer service, no out-of-pocket costs and a locally based team to cater to their needs. Treating physicians within the Blue Cross/Blue Shield network are to schedule their diagnostic tests such as MRIs, CTs and P.E.T. scans through DBM. In doing so, the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers, Local 17 will benefit with savings in tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, the Fund will benefit from DBMís high-level reporting; itís highly credentialed and quality focused network, as well as its Concierge Service to Fund members. This Concierge Service by DBM handles all aspects of patient preparation, education, scheduling, and follow-up. DBM acts as an overall resource for their members for any question or concern they may have in regards to their scheduled exam. The advantage to the utilized physicians is the lack of need for pre-authorization or pre-certification for any test scheduled through DBM, thus ensuring more timely treatment for members and less work for the physician.
Kevin Tremblay, CEO of DiaTri said, ĒWe are extremely excited to be able to bring our industry changing level of service to the members of the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers, Local 17.Ē
