How does Healthcare Bill Pay work?

Patients pay you online in one of two ways:

1. Through their health plan's website:

  • Claim(s) are submitted to the patient's health plan and adjudicated
  • The patient’s health plan sends an email to the patient notifying them that they have a claim available to review and the patient can pay from the health plan's website

2. Through a Patient Portal:

  • Patient searches for their provider and makes a payment based on the balance on their paper statement

You get paid faster and easier with direct deposit into your preferred bank account and experience the following benefits:

  • Accelerate patient payment cash flow and decrease days in accounts receivable
  • Collect more patient payments and reduce bad debt
  • Reduce the time and costs incurred for collections
