Will CDANet Benefit You

Whether or not your office accepts assignment, CDANet will help you and your patients collect payment from the insurance companies more quickly. If you are a current Genie user, you are able to run R-1, which will analyze your current insurance claims.

Features of CDANet

On-line adjudication of claims. This means that the insurance companies response back to your office indicating the percentage of coverage for each procedure done, the deductible amount, procedures not covered, whether a policy is active or cancelled, etc. The results are sent back to your computer on a form called the "Explanation of Benefits".


Receive insurance cheques in the mail within five days. Some of our clients receive them as quickly as two days.

When you receive an "Explanation of Benefits" from the insurance company you know exactly how much the insurance company is going to pay and how much the patient owes. You can charge the patient immediately, thereby cutting down on your outstanding A/R.

Predeterminations can be done through CDANet. Insurance companies may still require x-rays, so the network accepts the claims and will wait for you to send the x-rays.

CDANet is designed so standard claim forms will still print in Genie if the claim needs to employer authorized.

How to get started using CDANet

Each doctor will send an application to CDANet for approval. Generally, this step takes a few weeks.

Install a phone line dedicated only for the use of CDANet electronic claims.

Purchase the appropriate software and hardware necessary for CDANet. A modem will be needed to hook up to the CDANet line to submit claims.

If you already have a dedicated line for support and one for faxes and credit card machines we can install a "Stick," (Call Processor). The Stick allows you to share from two to three devices on one telephone line. Your support modem, fax and credit card machines can be utilize on one dedicated line. The Stick picks up the appropriate signal of which device is being accessed and dial out/in automatically. The Stick eliminates the need of having three or four phone lines coming into your office to support your electronic devices. It offers you the savings of only having two dedicated telephone line for your entire office.

Genie will assist you with the software and hardware installations and provide you with a manual and training.
