MDsave, the nation’s leading online medical service marketplace connecting providers, employers and consumers to affordable and accessible healthcare, announces a new partnership with VHC Health, a community-based health system providing medical services to the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

VHC Health is well respected regionally and nationally for excellence in patient care, distinguishing it from other hospitals in Virginia and the Washington, DC metro. This collaboration with MDsave allows VHC Health to fulfill their shared commitment to price transparency, the ability to partner with local employers for greater access to care for employees and opens the door to new patients by offering affordable prices and payment options to those with high deductibles or who have no insurance.

“We are excited about this partnership in the Arlington, Virginia area knowing we share a similar mission of providing quality care in a comforting and cost-effective manner,” says Paul Ketchel, chief executive officer of MDsave. “We believe with each new partnership we help bridge the gap between patients who need specialized healthcare and those who deliver high quality care without the confusion and stress normally associated with procedures requiring multiple providers and facilities.”

The MDsave Marketplace works with a network of health systems and providers to create shoppable, bundled medical services patients can purchase online at a singular transparent, upfront price with no surprise bills. MDsave also connects employers to local hospitals and health systems building volume and loyalty in the local community through an innovative digital platform.

“We are thrilled to partner with MDSave to make VHC Health’s services more affordable and accessible to the community we proudly serve,” said Melody Dickerson, MSN, RN, CPHA, Senior Vice President, Hospital Operations and Chief Nursing Officer at VHC Health. “This partnership benefits the health system and wider community by broadening transparency and reaching more patients in need of affordable treatments.”
