Dental Cost-Containment Leader P&R Dental Strategies Gains New Licensee Ameritas Group

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) - P&R Dental Strategies, a premier dental cost-containment and dental fraud prevention company, proudly adds Ameritas Group to its client roster. One of the nation's top ten dental carriers, Ameritas Group licensed P&R's Rapid Review Imaging System (RRIS) to further enhance its automated claims review process.

Ameritas Group, a division of Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., a UNIFI company, has served customers since the mid-1970s and today provides group dental, eye care and hearing care products, insuring more than 4.5 million people nationwide. In New York, products are offered through First Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. of New York, also a UNIFI company.

P&R's RRIS easily integrated into Ameritas Group's existing claims review system and has improved their claim review function, particularly with attachments. The RRIS also speeds up the scanning of x-rays, which can be time consuming. And because the RRIS produces clearer images, the need for better x-rays or review of hardcopy x-rays has been drastically reduced. As an added bonus, the RRIS and its one-click function should help reduce repetitive stress injuries for technicians who scan claims images.

According to April Rimpley, vice president of group customer connections and operations for Ameritas Group, the RRIS is working so well that Ameritas Group plans to purchase another system in the future. "Ameritas Group strives to find cutting-edge technology to assist in providing the best service possible to our providers and members, and the RRIS was an optimal way to enhance our review process," she adds.
