NAPERVILLE, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 -- Context 4 Healthcare, Inc. has announced an expanded partnership with Lone Star TPA of Tyler, TX and Employer Plan Services, Inc. (EPSI) of Houston, TX. Both organizations have begun utilizing Context's FirstPass™ medical claims editing solution. Lone Star TPA, a proven leader in Health Benefits Administration and Population Health Management, will utilize Context's solution within their medical claims adjudication system. The agreement will enable Lone Star & EPSI to improve adjudication performance and lower adjudication costs through early detection of inaccurate claims. Both organizations have previously been utilizing Context's DecisionPoint™ Usual, Customary, & Reasonable health payment benchmarking databases.

"We are excited about our expanded partnership with Context to utilize FirstPass™. We understand the everyday concerns facing businesses with the continued rising cost of medical and dental plans. Utilizing tools like FirstPass™ helps us by decreasing our own costs as well as providing accurate and timely adjudication for our clients," adds LaRea Albert, Chief Executive Officer of Lone Star TPA & Chief Operating Officer of EPSI.

"FirstPass™, Context's Software as a Service (SaaS) application designed for health payers, combined with over 20 years of clinical compliance experience will provide a robust solution to support their health plan management services while reducing costs associated with inaccurately submitted claims," said Mark Earles, President & CEO of Context.

"Lone Star TPA & EPSI will benefit from FirstPass' advanced clinical editing capabilities ensuring a more trouble free adjudication process in addition to the benefits they are already experiencing with the earlier implementation of our DecisionPoint™ UCR benchmarking fee databases. Context looks forward to the expanded relationship and continued support of these two great clients," noted Earles.
