ASSESSMENT PAYMENT OPTION AVAILABLE
Mcare will accept assessment payments through an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment process. The EFT may be a wire transfer or an ACH. The EFT process provides Mcare and primary insurers another payment method, as an alternative to a paper check. We request the use of EFTs when assessment payments are made.
To learn more about this 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.
