Patient Payment Strategies
More patients than ever are on high deduction health plans & are responsible for payment of medical bills. MedEvolve can help collect balance with our digital engagement plus U.S.-based call center.
When I ask clients, “Are all the scheduled visits coming in for Monday cleared based on the six points I just told you?”, the answer is “I think so”, but “I think so” doesn’t work anymore. “I think so” gets you overstaffed. “I think so” gets your net collection rate to be far below benchmark, which is negatively impacting your profit margin.
Healthcare organizations face unique challenges when collecting patient payments. Increased financial responsibility and limited interaction with patients before or during a visit can make it difficult to collect patient balances. The right tools and technology can help drive more payments and relieve the burden on smaller front and back-office teams to collect.
The shift toward greater patient financial responsibility is not slowing in healthcare. This trend—predicted by experts and underway for several years now—continues to tilt the reimbursement scale away from insurance claims and onto the patient.
