Imperial & Martin Howe


Martin Howe Associates (MHA) will expand its credit card processing for healthcare customers to include online, real-time insurance eligibility verification through Imperial Technology Solutions' (ITS) Receivables Payment Manager (RPM). With RPM, healthcare providers can instantly verify a patient's insurance eligibility and payment responsibilities, then collect co-payments at the point of care with a credit/debit/ATM card.

"Currently, healthcare providers incur high administrative costs due to delinquent or uncollected patient co-payments and insurance ineligibility. With RPM, Martin Howe Associates can offer its healthcare customers a secure financial solution that will benefit physicians, payors, patients and employers," says Debra K. Hubers, president of ITS.

Martin Howe is a division of Nova Corporation and provides services to more than 400,000 merchants representing more than $45 billion in credit card volume. The eight-year-old company is the fourth largest processor in the U.S. and processes credit, debit, and ATM card transactions, check verification, check guarantee, check truncation, patient easy pay services, and EBT.
