Opening a medical bill is often an unpleasant surprise for a patient – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Our cost transparency platform compares pricing for common medical procedures against a patient’s insurance plan. So she can make decisions based on her deductible, a provider’s network status, or just variations in the price of care. She understands her financial obligation before she steps foot in your office, and feels comfortable that she’s made the best choice for her based on quality, cost and convenience. And that’s good for everyone involved.
Things are changing for the better. Today there are great new technology tools available to help consumers shop for health care armed with information. Consumers can purchase some health care in much the same way they purchase other goods and services, knowing in advance how much they will have to pay out-of-pocket.- Chere Parton, President, WellMatch
