Summary

More than half of patients are concerned about their ability to pay a medical expense of $1,000 or less. Payment plans are one way to ease patients’ financial concerns while increasing collection rates. Many hospitals don’t offer these payment plans, and those who do aren’t talking to patients about their payment options. Meadows Regional Medical Center will share its success in developing payment plans that resonate with patients. Meadows Regional boasts a 98% collection rate for no-interest plans and a 79% collection rate for low-payment plans. The medical center’s approach boosts revenue, patient engagement and patient satisfaction.
