Alliance to Expand Adoption of HealthiPASS Patient Payment Solution and Promote Price Transparency
NASHVILLE, Tenn., - Frost-Arnett, a leader in Accounts Receivable Management (ARM) for the healthcare industry, announced today a strategic alliance with HealthiPASS, an innovative revenue cycle solution that assures and accelerates collections while bringing price transparency to the patient payment experience.
This alliance adds an important front-end accounts receivable patient payment solution to Frost-Arnett’s Business Services portfolio and introduces HealthiPASS to a qualified healthcare national provider network seeking to reduce bad debt and fast-track revenue collection. The alliance supports Frost-Arnett’s pursuit to help its clients with the increasing challenge of resolving patient balances and allows HealthiPASS access to Frost-Arnett’s salesforce and nationwide client base which has been cultivated over decades.
As high deductible health plans (HDHPs) become more prevalent and healthcare consumer out of pocket financial responsibilities continue to increase, HealthiPASS simplifies the payment experience for both patients and providers. Healthcare providers use HealthiPASS because it benefits both them and their patients, with:
• Self-service patient check-in and check-out.
• Real-time insurance eligibility verification.
• Instant and clear patient visit cost estimates (not just gross charges).
• Automated collection of prior balances, copays and pre-service deposits at check-in.
• Automated collection of patient balance after insurance payments without the need for paper statements, phone calls or harsh collection practices.
• Peace-of-mind that what’s being collected is the right amount, at the right time.
HealthiPASS increases profits by eliminating patient bad debt and reducing the cost of patient billing and collections. There is no up-front cost to a healthcare provider for the intuitive HealthiPASS kiosks that engage patients at check-in and check-out. Instead, providers only pay a small percentage of the dollars collected in a true pay-for-performance model that aligns interests.
“The HealthiPASS solution is complementary to our core services,” said Jason Meyer, CEO of Frost-Arnett. "We will now be the only ARM company that provides a true end-to-end suite of solutions for resolving the patient-pay portion of healthcare from check-in through delinquency."
“Our new alliance with Frost-Arnett is an important catalyst to continue the rapid adoption of HealthiPASS, which is already helping many healthcare practices across the country accelerate collections and provide improved financial clarity and price transparency to patients,” commented HealthiPASS CEO Rajesh Voddiraju. “Frost-Arnett is a proven market leader in ARM, and the addition of the HealthiPASS solution to their portfolio is a perfect fit for both companies.”
