What we can do for you

Contribution Processing & Record Keeping

C&R Consulting, Inc. will process employer remittance reports and track any associated discrepancies and/or delinquencies. We will maintain detailed records of Employer Contribution History and each Employee's work history, using this data to determine a participant's Welfare eligibility, track Pension credited service, and calculate Annuity/Vacation Fund balances.We provide participants with an annual Pension statement, plus Annuity Fund statements at a frequency determined by the Trustees.We make sure all terminating participants and dependents are in full compliance with COBRA continuation of coverage rules and HIPAA certification requirements.

Health Plan Benefit Processing & Payment

C&R Consulting, Inc. can process all claims for benefits under your Welfare Fund, including those payable on behalf of an insurance carrier selected by the Trustees. If a Fund belongs to a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), we will work with the PPO to reprice applicable claims in accordance with negotiated fee schedules.We will also prepare and file any reports needed for required plan maintenance and updating.

Coordination of Benefits Made Easy

Today's Medicare Supplement and Medigap payers have found an easier way to receive Medicare claims. A state-of-the-art Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) clearinghouse has made a once labor-intensive, time-consuming process easy. The clearinghouse provides a simple, convenient way to receive Medicare claim adjudication data. C&R Consulting sends eligibility files to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS forwards an electronic claim file of all eligible claims with the Medicare primary payment already calculated. Most importantly for the beneficiary, this eliminates the confusion of coordinating Medicare's Explanation of Medicare Benefits (EOMB) and forwarding the paperwork to their secondary insurance for payment.
  • The beneficiary simply shows their ID card at the time of service.
  • The provider submits the claim only once to Medicare.
