Four Michigan providers — Kalamazoo Gastroenterology Hepatology, Digestive Health Center, Healthcare Midwest and Southwest Michigan Dermatology — have selected Minneapolis-based mPay Gateway’s point-of-care patient payment system.
The system is designed to make it easier for providers to collect the patient’s share of a bill for service while also reducing patient confusion over how much they owe and when to pay, says the company. It can also help organizations reduce administrative time and overhead costs, it touts.
mPay Gateway’s system obtains payment authorization before a patient leaves the office, but the patient isn’t charged until the health care provider settles with the insurance company. The solution calculates the patient’s payment, authorizes the payment at the time of service, and collects the patient’s payment after the insurer has settled the claim.
