BEDFORD, N.H., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Compass Healthcare Advisers 'Navigational Web Tool' saved the New Hampshire residents more than $3.7 million in 2013 as more and more members begin using the simple online transparency tool and service. The Compass technology interface used by Health Insurers, Care Managers and individual members allows the online user to simply enter in their name and need for a medical procedure within a 20-minute drive of their home. Compass immediately gives the user several choices of where to get the procedure for less cost and the same quality of care.
Compass members have earned over $400,000 in rewards in 2013, on top of what they saved of their own money on deductibles by allowing them to select where they want to get an MRI or medical procedure for less cost.
"Members of Compass have a choice of where to shop using the Compass web tool so they become smarter health care shoppers," said Rob Graybill, CEO of Compass. "If your doctor tells you that you need an MRI for your knee, the same procedure done by the same radiologist may cost more than $2,000 at one facility and cost $750 in another facility five miles away. That is the same procedure done by the same doctor all in the same area but with big price differences. With Compass, the individual's financial exposure can be less by shopping with Compass and they can get excellent quality. We are making people smarter health care shoppers and consumers and the money they save helps bring transparency to overall health care."
Compass also offers members live phone support in addition to the online tool. The Compass solution can in two minutes allow users or callers to shop and select a location, get contact information and switch to a lower-cost, high-quality provider. The Compass technology does all the shopping work for the health care consumer and members can save hundreds or thousands of dollars based on their deductibles and procedures being selected.
Compass Health Advisers is now operating in 5 states, including; New Hampshire, Kentucky, Connecticut, Indiana, Maine and Massachusetts.
Compass Healthcare Advisers was founded with the simple goal of helping clients save money on the cost of healthcare and their SmartShopper and ChoiceRewards programs empowers employees with cost-effective choices.
