Ontellus Acquires Medical Records Canvassers

Ontellus, a nationwide provider of claims related data for insurers, has acquired two medical records canvassing companies: MasterTrace and Intertel.

All three companies provide insurance companies with data they need to investigate bodily injury claims and for underwriting. Ontellus, based in Houston, gathers medical, billing and employment records. Intertel, based in St. Louis, and MasterTrace, based Tamarac, Fla., both canvass medical records from facilities within specific regions to find out if and where claimants received prior medical treatment.

Ontellus said the merger will create a digital platform that allows insurers to procure records electronically and uncover previously unknown information when investigating claims.

“Medical canvassing is a crucial capability in the adjudication of insurance claims,” stated Darren Klauser, chief executive officer of Ontellus. “Having a digital platform that allows insurers to seamlessly move from canvassing to procuring records electronically will enable Ontellus to further expedite the

Charlie Nicholas takes aim at ‘cheap’ Celtic and makes shock Neil Lennon claim

Former Celtic star Charlie Nicholas claims Neil Lennon will be “annoyed” and “putting on a brave face” in the wake of the transfer window closing.

The Premiership champions landed AC Milan wing-back Diego Laxalt on a season-long loan but the 58-year-old reckons the deal won’t satisfy the Hoops boss.

Celtic had already signed Vasilis Barkas, Albian Ajeti, David Turnbull and secured loans for Shane Duffy and Moi Elyounoussi with the Hoops splashing out around £15m on new signings.

But unimpressed Nicholas reckons his former side have had an underwhelming window and believes Rangers are in the driving seat as both teams battle for Premiership supremacy.

He told the Express: “I said Celtic would go cheap in their pursuit of a left-back. I knew they wouldn’t spend money on a defender that Neil Lennon has been ever so patient for.

“I don’t think Lennon has been given much of a helping

Kamala Harris’ claim on COVID-19 business loans not whole truth

Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has indicated while campaigning in Michigan that only one Black-owned restaurant in the state received support through a federal COVID-19 relief program, an assertion that’s not true.

The U.S. senator from California who’s former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate renewed the claim about the Paycheck Protection Program on Tuesday while visiting Flint and Detroit. The program, which has been criticized for how it’s treated minority-owned businesses, provided nearly $16 billion in forgivable loans for more than 120,000 Michigan entities by the end of June.

“I looked at the numbers in terms of the businesses, the small businesses, restaurants that received the benefit of the PPP in Michigan and only one Black restaurant received it of the hundreds of others that received it,” Harris told
