ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The leader in EHR documentation and software solutions for I/DD service providers, Therap's electronic billing system equips intellectual and developmental disability providers and other Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) agencies across the U.S. submit direct-Medicaid billing.

Therap is the billing agent for multiple MCOs in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, North Carolina, New York and Wisconsin.

"What Therap brings is a wealth of expertise in how to implement fee-for-service," said Ken Slavin, East Coast Business Development Director. "Our expertise extends to about 25 states. This enables us to bring a level of practical knowledge that providers otherwise wouldn't have, and make the transition process seamless and less painful."

"We bring expertise plus a very flexible out-of-the-box-ready documentation system that is delivered with State-specific requirements," she said.
