Fort Lauderdale, FL, Feb. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- MediXall Group Inc., (MDXL), creator of MediXall.com, a technology and innovation-driven business focused on reducing healthcare costs and transforming the patient-provider experience, is pleased to announce that it will be showcasing its new functionality throughout HIMSS20 March 10–12, 2020 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
MediXall’s core functionality will allow users to integrate their existing healthcare benefits with the MediXall platform to enable the consumer to make confident financial decisions based on their insurance plan and coverage. This new functionality, launching in mid-2020, will join MediXall Group’s flagship product, MediXall.com, giving the Company the ability to provide MediXall users comprehensive support throughout their entire healthcare journey.
Patients are understandably confused about what their healthcare will cost - they regularly can’t understand their medical bills, have difficulty finding out how much out-of-pocket charges will be or what payment options are available. Like it or not, the average consumer does not understand the basic language of healthcare and health insurance. It's a complex process that has left many feeling unsure of their potential costs for treatments, products, & services. This makes it difficult, and in many cases impossible, for patients to know upfront how much they will have to pay out-of-pocket. This adds stress & hesitancy to healthcare buying decisions.
“This problem is running rampant throughout the nation, with unsupported consumers still navigating the confounding, expensive maze of healthcare,” said Michael Swartz, President of MediXall. “Over the past two years, we have been laser focused on filling this void by building and applying technology that we are excited to showcase at HIMSS20.”
MediXall.com has been built from the ground up to make shopping for medical, dental & wellness services just as easy as booking a flight or hotel on Priceline & Expedia or a dinner reservation on OpenTable. Through our online marketplace, patients can connect with doctors while bypassing almost all of the insurance headaches. Since inception, MediXall has built the MediXall.com platform, connected to over 25,000 providers and have tested it on consumers through a controlled launch.
Through extensive user feedback during this controlled launch, MediXall has identified common pain points experienced during the healthcare journey for not only these users, but the average American patient/consumer as a whole:
- Consumers aren’t sure about the network status of their doctors, which conflicts with the need to see an in-network doctor to avoid very expensive medical bills
- Insurance networks are confusing – the same type of doctor in the same hospital could be in-network or out-of-network
- Consumers do not know or understand their health plan coverage details
- Lack of understanding about how much is owed for medical services and if the amount is a fair price
- Lack of understanding about the amount covered by their health insurance
- Financial and emotional pressure, often at a difficult time, leaving patients poorly positioned to make smart decisions
