Partnership brings out-of-pocket patients the same high-quality care as insured patients at affordable, transparent prices.
With an ever-increasing number of Americans paying out of pocket for healthcare, Magnolia Regional Health Center (MRHC) is taking steps to help these patients get the medical care they need, when they need it. By partnering with online healthcare marketplace MDsave, MRHC is providing a new way for patients to buy their medical services upfront at discounted prices that are bundled together with related fees — which means no more surprise bills.
“This is the same quality care that patients have come to expect at our hospital,” said Jim Hobson, chief executive officer at MRHC. “We are able to offer our self-pay patients better prices through MDsave because of increased administrative efficiency, not because the quality of care is reduced in any way.”
MDsave is dedicated to making healthcare accessible to everyone by empowering patients to make informed decisions about their care. The MDsave online marketplace is built on the principles of affordability, transparency, and shoppability, giving patients the ability to shop and compare pre-negotiated, bundled prices for their services and then immediately act on that information.
“Working with Magnolia Regional Health Center, we are taking an important step toward making healthcare more accessible and affordable,” said MDsave CEO Paul Ketchel. “We know that the cost of preventive treatments is often a factor in consumers neglecting to have them. We hope that our strategic alliance will increase access to quality medical care and, as a result, help save lives.”
Hobson added, “This is an important step in the direction of improving the overall experience of our patients. We’re excited to see the positive impact it has on the patients of our region.”
