2009 Assessment Manual
New Assessment Payment Option Available
Mcare is pleased to announce it will accept assessment payments through an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment process, effective immediately. The EFT may be an ACH or wire transfer. The EFT process provides primary insurers with alternative payment methods, in addition to paper checks. We strongly recommend the use of EFTs when payments are made.
To learn more about this new payment option and the minimum standards, please send an email to Mcare’s Fiscal Unit at email@example.com expressing your interest. We will have an Mcare representative call you to explain the program. We thank you in advance for considering Mcare's preferred method of payment.
