ikaSystems, a Southborough, Mass.-based provider of enterprise-level cloud computing solutions for the healthcare payer market, and NASCO, a provider of IT solutions supporting the administrative efficiency of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans, have entered into an agreement that will bring faster, more efficient and accurate Medicare processes to NASCO Plan customers. As a result, NASCO Plan customers will dramatically reduce their administrative costs, maximize revenue, increase compliance conformance and achieve higher levels of member satisfaction through more efficient process management.

NASCO was formed in 1987 through a partnership among major Blues Plans. The company supplies a claims processing solution for national, state, large group, small group, individual and government programs; a highly configurable membership solution that can be tailored for any Plan’s book of business; and many performance-based services to help plans improve operational efficiencies and reduce costs. NASCO’s technology is built to handle large volumes and complex business, which is essential to its Plan customers.


The first solution that NASCO will offer is ikaMedicareGateway, which delivers greater speed and accuracy to Medicare Advantage member enrollment and reconciliation processes for NASCO Plan customers. ikaMedicareGateway can be rapidly deployed, helping Plans to easily accommodate membership growth without the need to build large infrastructures.
