Department of Veterans Affairs Awards Purchased Care Contract to DSS, Inc. Team

Care Claims Processing solicitation to Document Storage Systems, Inc. (DSS). The
Veterans Administration, where medical appropriateness and/or distance from care
are an issue, contracts medical services for our nation`s Veterans. DSS, Inc.
combined resources with partners Complete Medical Systems, MEGAS, Unicor
Medical, and VistA Revenue Solutions to create the Fee Basis Claims System
(FBCS). FBCS transforms the highly labor intensive, manual process of
adjudicating Fee claims into a seamless electronic workflow.

FBCS converts paper handling into a technology process that allows for automated
workload assignments, automated claim scrubbing and smooth claim flow,
hands-free acceptance of EDI claims for processing and superior data capture for
reporting. These new capabilities translate into faster claims processing,
better management tools, increased productivity and overall reduction of fee
payments. FBCS will play a key role in improving the payment timeliness of
veterans` purchased care claims.
