MDsave, an online healthcare marketplace, and Adventist Health Simi Valley will give patients the ability to buy medical services upfront at reduced prices that are bundled together with related fees – sparing patients any surprise bills.
“Patients get the same quality of care they can expect at our hospital,” John Dingilian, Adventist’s chief medical officer, said in a statement. “We are able to offer our self-pay patients affordable prices through MDsave because of increased administrative efficiency.”
MDsave’s online marketplace offers pre-negotiated and bundled prices for services. For example, MDsave’s current featured specialties include electrocardiograms, mammogram screenings and blood typing among other services.
“We are compelled to build healthier communities,” Jennifer Swenson, Adventist Health Simi Valley chief executive, said in a statement. “MDsave provides alternative ways for patients to get the health care they need.”
