Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Price shopping and appointment booking patient tool Save On Medical is now being used as a resource for employers paying out-of-pocket for employee health care expenses. Self-insured companies with employees injured on the job, needing to limit that amount of workman’s compensation they file are utilizing Save On Medical to pay cash prices for their employee’s necessary procedures.
In Gulfport, Mississippi, a local construction company took advantage of the discounted pricing offered on Save On Medical when paying out-of-pocket for an employee’s MRI procedure at Compass Imaging, which the individual needed after sustaining an injury on the job. When speaking with the construction company’s representative, he said the following of his experience with Save On Medical:
“The procedure our employee needed would normally be filed through our workman’s compensation program, but as the injury appeared to be minimal, we decided that having the company pay it directly would be easier. Save On Medical made the process seamless. I had called around to a number of providers for pricing and Save On Medical definitely had the lowest prices available.”
The patient, Clint Cutrer, commented on the Save On Medical booking experience saying, “The website is so user-friendly. I didn’t have any issues requesting my appointment and my employer was easily able to pay online for it before I even went in for my appointment.”
Save On Medical’s mission has been to provide quality care to uninsured and under-insured patients, but they are pleased to help this new segment of the patient population when it comes to price shopping and booking diagnostic imaging procedures.
