Patient Responsibility Estimation

Set your patients’ financial expectations up-front with clear and accurate estimates.

Know Before You Go

Patients today are assuming a greater responsibility for their medical costs. In fact, patients have become the third-largest payer in the industry!

Yet, more patients than ever before are delaying payment on their healthcare bills as they struggle to understand medical bills, plan coverage, and their out-of-pocket costs. When patients don’t know in advance what they will owe, it’s difficult for them to plan their payments reliably.

Don't Let Uncertainty Lead to Unpaid Statements

By taking advantage of the eMEDIX Patient Responsibility Estimation tool, providers can easily pre-calculate an individualized, out-of-pocket cost estimate using data from previous payments, physician and facility fees, and the patient’s own benefits information.

Accurate Estimates, Up-to-Date Information, Improved Transparency

Real-time financial estimates create complete transparency. This empowers patients to manage their cost of care proactively. By arming patients with the information they need, you’ll increase the likelihood that they will pay at the time of service. And, for any patients seeking out-of-network services that may impact your compliance with the No Surprises Act.

Provide payment expectations before providing a service or procedure. Organizations have the responsibility to communicate often and clearly with the patient. If your organization is also subject to the requirements of the No Surprises Act, Patient Responsibility Estimation is a valuable tool to help you be compliant.
Patients typically do not receive complete or accurate (or sometimes any) cost information before or at the point of care. Easy-to-understand cost breakdowns provided in advance will improve the patient's trust with their provider.
Empower your patients by arming them with accurate information about the cost of their care. When patients trust the information, you provide and understand the expected out-of-pocket cost, they are more likely to pay upfront or when they receive a bill later.
