The VBA recently issued a video explaining its goal to reduce the use of paper in claims while increasing speed and accuracy. Under the system, all paper claims are shipped and scanned into a computer. Claims processors then do their work in the database system, without the need for the paper claim.
The goal, according to the VBA, is to have all claims processed within 125 days with 98 percent accuracy by 2015.
News of the VBA's effort was highlighted in the most recent edition of Meade Week, a video news roundup produced by the Fort Meade public affairs office.
