Who should bill the patient The Insurance Company instead of you?
There was a recent article suggesting that the insurance should bill the patient for their balance instead of the medical practice.
Instead of a medical practice/biller spending time, energy and resources mailing patient statements, calling patients to get them to pay, and still having to deal with non-payment if the insurance handled this would it be better for the patient?
Better for the biller/practice?
Would the cost of sending statements be lowered as many insurances have websites for members and could possibly make electronic statements and payments available?
Or would it just be a transfer of cost from the medical practice/biller to the insurance and in turn affect physician reimbursements?
This raises a lot of questions and there are pros and cons. Tell us what you think about this on Twitter and Facebook!
