New partnership paves the way for Telarus’ network of over 4,000 technology brokers to offer their customers in the medical field turnkey video telehealth and insurance claim processing solutions.

 May 5, 2020

SANDY, UT – Telarus, LLC., master agent of business cloud infrastructure and SaaS providers, today announced it that it has entered into an exclusive technology distribution agreement with Lightning MD, a SaaS provider of medical billing and telehealth video conferencing services. The easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy telehealth video conferencing service can be deployed in just a few hours, starts at $29 per month (per provider), and does not require a contract. The Lightning MD billing platform streamlines the insurance claims process using an intuitive interface and a proprietary multi-tiered claim processing system, retailing for $299 per month (per provider).
“With the need for heroes in the medical profession to be able to leverage video conferencing to stay in close contact with their patients, a turn-key telehealth solution is just what the doctor ordered for the Channel,” said Adam Edwards, CEO of Telarus.  “While we have UCaaS providers that offer amazing video solutions, Lightning MD is the only company we work with whom offers a purpose-built solution that is easy, intuitive, and integrates seamlessly into their award-winning billing solution. Using Lightning MD, a doctor can be conducting secure, HIPAA-compliant video telehealth visits with their patients in a matter of hours, without any software to install. We look forward to working on an exclusive basis with Lightning MD and their amazing team of medical technology professionals for many years to come.”

Lightning MD was founded in 2017 by Kelly Schoenfeld and Brian Esser, two former medical professionals and former Valedictorians of California State University, San Bernardino. They originally formed a medical billing company, and quickly realized that the industry was lacking in intuitive, easy-to-use medical billing software. Lightning MD was created.  In the past three years, the company, with the feedback of dozens of medical doctors, has completed three iterations of its billing software and pioneered the Channel’s first purpose-built video conference solution that securely connects a patient with their attending physician.

“We are excited to be distributing exclusively through Telarus,” said Kelly Schoenfeld, co-founder and CEO of Lightning MD. “Our dual-solution platform of turnkey telehealth and medical billing dramatically streamlines the insurance claims process.  Lightning MD is an intuitive and simple system that flags claims likely to be denied before they make it to the insurance payer. All transactions are electronic and processed via APIs with each insurance payer, including Medicare, ensuring speedy payments with a near zero-reject rate. We look forward to the ongoing partnership and working closely with Telarus’ partners who have a vertical focus on the medical industry.”
