The Medical Check system is very simple. It has been designed for the purpose of helping medical practitioners to make educated decisions about the payment terms they offer each of their new patients. It is NOT there to cause any patient to be denied medical treatment by any practice.
The process is simple:
- If a practice finds that a patient is not paying his or her medical bills, the practice can list such a patient free of charge on the Medical Check database. Other subscribing practices will then be forewarned about such a patient's financial history.
- If the patient's email address is available and correctly entered into the database, he or she will be automatically notified when listed, encouraging him or her to remedy the situation. If they do remedy the situation their status on the Medical Check database is duly updated.
- When subscribing practices see new patients, they can check these patients on the system and quickly reference whether such new patient is low or high risk when it comes to bill settlement.
