CMS’ new price transparency tool is a good start. HealthQRS can help you provide more and avoid sticker shock
CMS has released a price tool for Medicare patients to look up costs for hospital outpatient surgeries. The tool allows patients to type in a procedure and then see a list of procedures based by code. Once the user selects a specific procedure from that list, another list is shown with averages comparing patient out-of-pocket at ambulatory surgical centers vs. hospital outpatient.
You are just days away from needing to publish a price list. We’ve talked with hospital executives who are concerned that publishing the rack rate will scare patients away. And it’s likely to. Why not put a proper price list together that helps, rather than hurts you? Something the consumer can actually use, that won’t put them off, but will attract them to you.
HealthQRS’ price transparency tool allows you to publish price as well a downloadable readable file that shows realistic pricing, not the charge master. In addition, we can provide out-of-pocket pricing. Our solution can also capture the user’s information, such as name, email address and phone number.
We are a software-as-a-service (SaaS), so you have no capital investment, just a low monthly fee. HealthQRS can provide this to you for as low as $500 per month and we can have you compliant by January 1, and not only that, your facilities will be much more attractive to consumers than your competition who is publishing charge master prices.
We also have a smartphone application that consumers can use to shop, see actual costs, schedule and pay for services with a few finger taps. Our solution is simple to use.
