Multi-Benefit Pension Administration and Claims System (MPACS) System Project
Our client, a firm providing third party benefits administration, payment, and consulting services, engaged us to assist with numerous task authorizations that required our continuous participation on their Multi-Benefit Pension Administration and Claims System (MPACS) system.
The first task authorization was to develop the first release MPACS, which consisted of the Claims and Administration subsystems. These included:
- Functionality to enable the system to process and adjudicate extended health, dental, disability, and death claims, and a variety of other claim types that may be managed for any given client.
- Functionality required allowing the system to receive, enter, allocate, and manage employee-earned benefits forwarded by employers.
- Enhanced batch processing, event queue capabilities.
- Direct deposit.
- Third party adjudication of claims.
- Automated cheque production internally and via third party.
- Email notification, alerts to internal users.
This state-of-the-art solution enabled our client to provide services to both clients and plan participants, and react quickly to new client requirements. Due to the success of the first release, our client has issued numerous subsequent task authorizations that have employed Accreon on a continuous basis to provide additional services to implement new releases and functionality into the system, as well as provide on-going maintenance and support.
Accreon enhanced production support for product in the following areas:
