You can receive NextMed services at both hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers using many different payment and insurance plans. However, your choice of treatment location could mean a difference of thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses. Determining options for the cost of care at your facility can be time-consuming and difficult—and rarely are you provided with a risk-adjusted cost, which considers safety factors.
It is for this reason that NextMed developed its Patient Advocacy Program. Participating physicians connect their patients with NextMed’s patient advocates who use an extensive database and proprietary cost-reduction tool to find the lowest-cost location options for each patient’s particular situation. It is common for NextMed’s Patient Advocates to find out-of-pocket savings well in excess of $1,000 per treatment. Often the savings are even greater.
