The AMA National Health Insurer Report Card has delivered $8 billion in health system savings—a result of reducing medical claim errors. The AMA has worked with insurers to improve the accuracy, efficiency and transparency of their claims processing. As a result, the percentage of claims paid incorrectly by private health insurers has been cut in half since 2011. The National Health Insurer Report Card is the cornerstone of the “Heal the Claims Process”™ campaign. Learn more about how the AMA is engaging health insurers in the campaign.
