Patients are increasingly arming themselves with medical information online looking for a more collaborative approach to their health care. Unfortunately, many patients do little research on their own insurance coverage and have limited understanding of their benefits.
PatientConnect expands this collaborative approach to the financial side of healthcare by arming both the patient and provider with more knowledge—proactively communicating is the key.
It is important for patients to understand your financial policy, their insurance eligibility and benefits, and an estimate of costs. This will help educate both patient and provider and offer a clear understanding of patients’ responsibility. Pre-service financial counseling also helps identify patients who are eligible for charity care and government assistance.
