Sending claims is effortless using FastAttach.

NEA has made my life easier since the day we enrolled.

I no longer have to copy EOB’s and mail them in. It works with our software to attach whatever the insurance requests for claims to be processed. We save time, paper and postage. It takes seconds to do, is easy to use and they back it up. When the companies tell me they never received something there is proof. The few times I’ve still had trouble someone at NEA has made the call directly to the insurance company on my behalf. I couldn’t imagine my days without it now! 

— Christine Farley-Stobbs, Pediatric Dentistry Of The North Shore

I love that FastAttach allows seamless claim processing for our office.

We can attach xrays, narratives, perio charting, and secondary insurance claims at the click of a button. It is such a time saver on our end AND it helps us receive insurance payments Faster. It is a FANTASTIC service that I highly recommend!
