CARE Estimation Benefits
CARE Estimation replaces unreliable manual estimates with accurate calculations of a patient’s financial responsibility. The system automatically retrieves and combines data from payer portals and charge master data to present an estimate based on the most current information available on patient coverage. It checks to find out if financial assistance is available for self-pay patients.
CARE Estimation aids in the financial clearance process by determining propensity to pay or charity qualification, without requiring an intrusive credit check. The system is the most intelligent patient estimate service on the market, even evaluating patient estimates against previously adjudicated claims to identify variances—significantly decreasing likelihood of refunds and supplemental bills.
CARE Estimation integrates payment posting files with optional feature to support detailed reporting on actual collections relative to total opportunity. It produces global estimates and both facility and professional charges making a seamless patient estimation experience. It easily works within major systems like Epic, turning basic patient estimation features into dynamic, accurate intelligence on the patient’s true financial responsibility.
