MedData’s patient-focused healthcare eligibility services were recently featured in the news media.
Uninsured patients at Banner University Medical Center Tucson and Banner South now have more help registering for Medicaid and other low-income benefits.Becky Peters, director of patient access services at Banner Health, said staff members from Integrated Health Management Services and MedData will first help patients cover their medical bills by registering them for Medicaid. After that, she said the staff will work with these patients to sign up for other services, like food stamps.
MedData will use its innovative screening technology to help uninsured patients who seek care at select Banner Health hospitals in Arizona only, by connecting them with appropriate health care coverage opportunities from among hundreds of available programs. In addition, MedData’s experienced patient advocates will personally advise patients on a variety of other benefits that may be available to them and their families.
We want all our patients to feel that they are not only getting the best medical treatment they need and deserve but have the peace of mind that they are also receiving the best medical coverage. By teaming with IHMS and MedData, we’re committed to helping our uninsured patient population find solutions and resources that best meet their medical and financial needs.
