BSC had been receiving a number of member complaints regarding error messages that were confusing and tone-deaf to our member's needs.

Where we started

A proof of concept was created by the tech leads in 2018 as a test to see if they could create the capability to search by the medical numerical code and intake a claim into directly into the BSC systems.

Outdated processes

BSC and most of our competitors were still accepting faxed 837 forms. The only other alternative to submit a medical claim at the time of this writing was a digitally optimized PDF version of the paper form.
