As patients finally become consumers, providers must give them the tools they need for price transparency or risk losing their “customers’ to a hospital that does. But even when your team has access to the best estimation tool, responding to patient inquires and “shoppers” can cut into productivity and delay other critical responsibilities. AccuReg’s Estimate My Cost® patient-facing estimator alleviates that burden by putting the same powerful tool available to your staff at the fingertips of your patients.
Estimate My Cost utilizes our payment estimation and collection tool to provide the most accurate patient payment estimates. It combines data from the provider’s charge master, claims history, payer contract terms, and the patients insurance benefits to generate either a self-pay estimate or price estimates for services using their insurance information. Patients can keep a copy of their reference number or print a copy of their estimate for reference.
