LanternPay Onboarding Process

LanternPay API interface onboarding process

Solution Scope:

  • LanternPay interface is used for NDIA managed participants only to link the Client’s funding setup with MyCare.
  • Synchronizes data with the NDIA allowing Service Bookings ingestion, automatic updates as changes occur on the NDIA side eg. funding period extensions, increase/decrease of funds, end of funding period etc
  • Enables users to create, edit and end Service Bookings from within MyCareSoft and upload to the NDIA system
  • Enables real time and automated NDIA claiming. Instant responses for confirming approved services or instant error responses to allow for immediate action.

Solution Benefits:

  • Eliminates duplication of data entry and funding setup in NDIA portal and MyCareSoft by synchronizing data.
  • Up-to-date data to ensure informed decision making and to reduced claim errors in regard of funding claim periods and budgets
  • Instant response to fast-track approved claims and verify funding claim payments before money hits the bank
  •  Investigate and resolve any rejected claims and re-submit in real time — instant claim rejections are received ready for action.
  • Eliminates the need to use the NDIA portal for claiming and error management.
