Support & Training
How does Training work?
What times are Support available? Are there hold times? Are there call back hours and, if so, what is the turnaround time?
As an additional resource, we also have a comprehensive support website, available for clients anytime. Here, you can create Help Desk tickets; watch PIMSY training & how-to videos; and have access to a variety of resources, such as Support FAQs, company documents, the user forum and more for non-time-critical issues.
How does Support handle specific issues or problems?
If it is a data issue, we can usually fix it the same day, depending on the extent of the problem. If it is a PIMSY interface issue that requires a new version, we will address it based on the severity of the problem: if it is a critical issue with no work around, it will be resolved ASAP. If it's a non-critical issue, we will post the solution with the next update released.
Is PIMSY HIPAA compliant? Is it in the Cloud? What security measures protect my data?
Since there are two systems that work together for Electronic Billing, how do uptime/downtime questions apply to the insurance side?
You normally need to be in the Clearinghouse interface for shorter periods of time, only to upload and download files and maybe check the status of some claims.
If there is a problem with the Electronic Billing function, who does a client call?
