This communication is a reminder that the US Postal Service (USPS) implemented their 1 – cent increase for letters on January 22, 2012. This is the first price change for USPS First-Class Mail stamps in more than two and a half years. The USPS rate increase will only affect customers who process Paper Claims and Patient Statements. This new rate increase became effective March 1, 2012 for our applicable EMRBS customers. As a result of the postal increase, those processing Paper Claims and Patient Statements will find an increase of 1- cent, per transaction, on their March invoice. Paper claims will increase from $0.45 to $0.46; while patient statements will increase from $0.68 to $0.69. Other fees associated with Paper Claims and Patient Statements - paper, printing, equipment and personnel to process, sort, and mail the items plus our software and support services will remain unchanged. In addition, the Patient Statements fee will continue to include unlimited pages and the USPS Fast Forward service.
