HBI October 2015 Bonuses
HBI wants to add just a little bit extra to your ability to take control of your health care or your practice, beyond our one of a kind healthcare portal. To make that happen, we have decided that in each monthly review, we will include little bits of information that might not be enough to make a whole blog, but that might help our readers in some small way.
Our goal is to give you just one more reason to feel confident as you join HBI to bring freedom and choice back to health care. We will be including definitions of common words and phrases you might run into in our blogs and other medically connected services, as well as news stories, interesting links, factoids, or how-to’s on a variety of healthcare-related topics. So let’s get started!
Definition – a Self-Pay Patient or a cash patient is a patient that pays for medical or health related services with cash (credit card, checks etc.) instead of using insurance.
Factoid – According to some estimates, 45% of your health care costs are administration and government fees, most of which is directly related to the cost of making insurance claims.
