Real-Time Out-of-Pocket Cost Estimation

Provide Greater Transparency to Help Drive Patient Satisfaction

The patient experience is becoming more and more important in healthcare. However, it’s not just about their results any longer, but rather how the entire experience was from start to finish. We see it in online reviews and we know that patients talk to each other and recommend gastroenterology practices that make them feel empowered, cared for and engaged through innovative tools.

That’s why our gastroenterology practice management system, gPM™, now gives you and your staff the ability to provide price transparency to your patients. Called gEstimator™, this feature can estimate a patient cost* in just seconds without a phone call or fax. By giving your patients powerful information that they can base their decisions on, you can help build trust and work towards delivering a positive patient experience worth remembering.

How do you make your gastroenterology practice more appealing to millennials?

*Patient cost estimates are generated by relying on information you provide regarding expected diagnosis, procedure codes and similar information. Any change in the information provided may result in a change to the estimate and Modernizing Medicine Gastroenterology makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy or reliability of any estimates generated by gEstimator. Estimates should only be used to collect payments from patients as permitted by applicable laws and standards.

Immediate Patient Cost Estimates—How it Works

Whether you’re in the appointment, prepay queue or gEstimator queue within gPM, it’s easy to submit a gEstimator request and get an estimate back in real time. Based on the parameters below, gEstimator can instantly generate an easy-to-read itemized sheet showing the patient’s estimated responsibility, copay and deductible as calculated by your clearinghouse. Your staff can even add a note before printing it for the patient to review and sign.

Gastroenterology Patient Collections

By giving patients realistic expectations about their estimated costs of care, gEstimator helps prepare your patients for what their out-of-pocket responsibility might be before they receive their bill. This, in turn, can help make patient collections easier while helping your patients feel more involved in their own care process.
