The Patient Cost Estimator feature allows practices to generate Good Faith Estimates for patients. However it does not end there, the Patient Cost Estimator also allows practices to provide insured patients with an out of pocket cost estimate for services to be rendered. This is done utilizing our real-time eligibility, or batch eligibility check. With the eligibility information on hand and the expected services documented it is than able to calculate what the out of pocket cost will be for the patient. The estimate will be available to be shared with the patient by printing it or from the patients MyMedicalLocker account.
The Patient Cost Estimator screen is accessible from multiple locations in your database. From the schedule, more under patient setup, and claim window to name a few places.
