Tellus Wellness Taps Nomi Health as Its Partner to Pay Providers

June 6, 2024

SALT LAKE CITY, May 30, 2024–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nomi Health, a company changing healthcare economics, is partnering with Tellus Wellness to streamline its provider payment process. Tellus Wellness provides a complementary care benefit program for employer-sponsored healthcare that lowers costs and gains access for its members. Tellus is leveraging Nomi to simplify payments and reduce administrative waste.

Tellus providers receive payment in just 24 hours, a significant reduction from the healthcare industries’ approximate 30-60-day payment cycles.

“Contracting with and retaining quality, talented providers hinges greatly on our ability to process provider payments on time — a requirement shared by provider groups across the country,” said Donna Goldin Evans, CEO and co-founder of Tellus Wellness. “Our providers have told us the benefit of being paid within days — not months — through a direct payment system is ‘a game-changer.’”

Nomi Health eliminated unnecessary payment delays by implementing streamlined electronic payment options, accelerating the payment process and relieving the revenue-cycle management strain on providers across the Tellus Wellness network.

“Archaic payment processes to providers are unsustainable. They are wreaking havoc on provider groups across the country, making revenue management almost impossible,” said Boe Hartman, CTO and co-founder of Nomi. “The good news is that this is 100% avoidable, and groups such as Tellus Wellness are leading the charge in adopting modern payment systems for the benefit of providers and their patients.”

A provider in the Tellus Wellness Network, Angela Cash, the business owner of Help with Massage and a licensed massage therapist focusing on medical and therapeutic massage, said: “I love the partnership we have with a team of people to back us up when we have questions and the turn-around time for our revenue cycle is amazing, almost unheard of next to cash pay.”

“With Tellus Wellness and Nomi Health, the benefits are straightforward, and we are reimbursed quickly and seamlessly,” said Dr. Hunter Greenwood, owner of Chiropractic Plus and licensed in chiropractic and naturopathic medicine.

Tellus Wellness currently offers its services in Southwest Missouri with plans to expand in Missouri and other states.
