Automated Benefits Releases Adjudicare Version 4.1.9 With New Online Claims Access08:03 EDT Tuesday, April 12, 2011TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 12, 2011) -Automated Benefits Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Automated Benefits Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AUT), is proud to announce the release of version 4.1.9 of the Adjudicare software, featuring exciting enhancements and a new Online Claims Access feature.The new release enables our partners to offer a branded web-portal to their group benefit clients, which allows employees to view their personal information, claims and payment history for themselves and their dependents. The Online Claims Access feature also provides employees the ability to download documents such as benefit booklets and claim forms. This improved visibility is expected to enhance the employee experience, while reducing the number of inquiries to plan administrators. In addition, employees can now print their own Explanation of Benefits ("EOB"), eliminating the need to have such documents sent via mail. This facilitates the use of Electronic Funds Transfer to pay claims on a direct-deposit basis, which eliminates the time and cost associated with mailing cheques and employee EOB's. "The Online Claims Access feature is a natural extension of our conversion of the Adjudicare software to a web-based platform," states Richard Adair, Chief Financial Officer/Chief Operating Officer of Automated Benefits Inc. "This offers exciting opportunities to expand our product into other areas including offering plan administrators the ability to enrol members in the group plan and eventually facilitate claims submission by employees online."For more information on the Adjudicare product, visit www.adjudicare.com or call 1.866.647.1147.
