Worker enrollment in high deductible health plans has been steadily increasing from 20 percent in 2013 to 30 percent in 2017, according to a survey by KFF on employer health benefits. Patient responsibility is a critical part of the bottom line for ambulatory care practices with these accounts, but your current billing solution may not be well-suited to this scenario. NextGen EPM offers several innovative features and partnerships that support the growth in patient responsibility. Medfusion, which is now part of NextGen Healthcare, empowers practices with streamlined and automated billing and collection solutions. A partnership with Availity brings in robust pre-collection functionality and is particularly helpful for working with patients with high deductible health plans. Here are five of the benefits that NextGen EPM can bring to your practice's bottom line.
