Over the last couple years, the issue of virtual card payments continues to come up due to the tactics some payers have used to pressure practices into accepting virtual credit cards for payment and the additional fees that result.
The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) has worked to raise awareness among medical practice staff, and advocate within the health IT industry for better regulation of virtual cards. The short survey below will help stakeholders better understand the various perspectives on the issue. Please take a moment to voice your viewpoint.
The survey was developed by the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange, or WEDI. It is a national entity composed of all stakeholders – providers, payers, clearinghouses, EMR vendors, banks, etc.
Complete the survey by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/virtualpaymentcard.  The survey will close February 12.
