Efficient claims handling

  • Cashless handling of claims –  member is referred to a medical clinic in our network and the cost of treatment is settled directly between the medical facility and MBAS.
  • Should the member prefer to use a medical facility outside of our network, or live in an area where we do not have a network facility, the payment for treatment will be handled on a reimbursement basis. This can easily be filed via our member portal.
