Press Release – updated: Jan 26, 2017
Mira Loma, CA, November 30, 2016 (Newswire.com) – ABG Communications, a technology-enabled services provider of healthcare communications & fulfillment solutions, achieved 100% compliance for CY 2017 Member renewal kit fulfillment for a major California health plan.
The health plan representative stated that it was the highest delivery compliance rate it has achieved on this project in the past three years and that ABG’s team was a big part of this success.
“During a time where health plans struggle with ANOCs and Q4 fulfillment efforts, this is a fantastic achievement and we are very grateful to be a part of engineering this success. Compliant kit delivery is always a pain point for health plans and our technology/QA teams are continually researching and developing cutting edge ways to ease the pain and achieve success.”

Dan Ablett, President and COO of ABG Communications states, “During a time where health plans struggle with ANOCs and Q4 fulfillment efforts, this is a fantastic achievement and we are very grateful to be a part of engineering this success. Compliant kit delivery is always a pain point for health plans and our technology/QA teams are continually researching and developing cutting edge ways to ease the pain and achieve success.”
To give a frame of reference for this, for just this one health plan over a half million kits were shipped, containing over 15 million pages. This was completed in just under 8 weeks.
CMS fines in 2015 for non-compliant ANOC delivery alone amassed an averaged $760,888 per plan1. ABG has found there is a critical need for experts in production fulfillment of these vital government- regulated communications.
“ABG’s BridgeSuite™ online centralized platform was developed primarily from conducting peer studies and feedback from innovators in the Payer, Provider, PBM, Data Processor, and Clinical Labs space,” said Valerie Cobb Vice President of Business Development. “All are industries we serve and want to offer relevant and cutting-edge processes to reduce cost, increase revenue, mitigate risk and good old fashioned make-their-lives easier. At the end of the day, it is empowering those industries with exceptional tools that allow them to focus on what is most important and what they are trying to accomplish foremost quality of care and saving lives. Isn’t that what we all want? I want a Cardiologist to assist me if I have developed a heart condition. Asking a cardiologist to fix my car would firstly, be adverse to my car’s condition but secondly, a real waste of their time.”
