MDrecoveries enters the marketplace boasting an innovative new model for revenue cycle management. Established to reinforce healthcare organizations across the country, MDrecoveries improves reimbursement and lowers costs for the management of air medical and trauma claim revenue.

Declining reimbursement coupled with higher costs and the growing under-insured and un-insured populations are creating fiscal challenges for healthcare organizations, threatening the quality of care and level of services they provide. Until now, claims personnel lacked the specialty training needed, while often subsidizing expensive external software. Alternatively, MDrecoveries provides the professional subject matter experts to manage the revenue cycle utilizing the current organizations systems and software to improve reimbursement, accelerate collections, and produce measurable increases to an organizations top and bottom lines. MDrecoveries was founded to transform healthcare organizations from a culture of scarcity to a culture of surplus by improving the hospitals profitability.

We match our certified subject matter experts with the hospitals existing internal billing system, operating as an extension of its business office, said Michael Walterscheid, CEO and President of MDrecoveries. Our model allows us to eliminate upfront capital investments for our customers and allows us to recover revenue at a lower cost than other healthcare revenue cycle management companies. Were proud to finally provide a service that is 100% transparent, completely secure, and guaranteed to improve reimbursement, allowing the hospital to focus on what is important, saving lives.

Bupa International has launched a new flexible short-term international private medical insurance (IPMI) policy, called Bupa Flex. The product will allow customers to purchase IPMI, but on a 3-11 month basis and anywhere in between, down to the day they require.

Previously, people moving abroad for less than a year did not have the option to buy a short term IPMI product. Bupa Flex will allow these customers to choose the length of their policy, offering them value for money, as well as access to all the benefits of being one of Bupa’s international health insurance customers.

Muriel MacCallum, marketing director, Bupa International, said: “We’ve listened to our customers and designed Bupa Flex specifically for their short term needs. If you are relocating abroad, or travelling on an overseas assignment through work, you don’t necessarily want to take out a full year’s policy, but you still want the comprehensive cover IPMI provides.

“This new product means that our customers will still have access to the appropriate care and treatment they need, wherever they are in the world (except the USA), through an insurance policy with a timeframe and price that suits their needs.

Bupa International offers customers access to more than 200,000 medical providers worldwide and can settle bills directly with over 7,500 hospitals and clinics. Customers can contact Bupa International’s doctors and advisers for medical advice and guidance, 24 hours a day, and have access to a second medical opinion at no extra cost.

Protect Your Bubble (, the UKs leading specialty insurance brand, has launched in the US market, offering pet insurance policies for dogs and cats with a variety of affordable options. Plans provide up to 90 percent reimbursement on covered vet bills for eligible accidents, illnesses, and hereditary conditions. Routine wellness coverage is also available to help consumers get reimbursed on routine vet treatments. Consumers can go to any vet in the country, and may be eligible to receive a 10 percent multi-pet discount.

According to the 2011-2012 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 62 percent of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 72.9 million homes. Pets have moved from the backyard to the family room because most American pet owners see their pet as a member of the family. In fact, according to a 2011 survey published in, 81 percent of those surveyed consider their dogs to be true family members, equal in status to children. A 2009 article speculates that this increased focus on pets could be a result of many variables including, couples abstaining from having children until later in life, our real-life relationships have been exchanged for the over saturation of social media consumption, or the fact that our stressful lives warrant a furry, unconditionally loving four-legged friend to greet us when we come home.

Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: Consumers insure their loved ones with health insurance; now its time to insure pets, too. Owners who wouldnt consider not treating their pet to needed care due to their financial situation may find Protect Your Bubble USA ( to be an affordable option for their pets healthcare.
