Engage Your Patients and Avoid Surprise Bills
Enhance patient access and satisfaction with integrated patient engagement capabilities
The No Surprises Act, which includes surprise billing legislation, was signed into law the final week of 2020 and is slated to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022. Surprise medical bills are unexpected balances the patient owes. While emergency medicine is often the poster child for the most egregious balance bills, the surprise billing law is likely to have an impact on diagnostic provider billing and negotiations with payors as well.

Ambry Genetics Increases Price Transparency During the Ordering Process
Ambry is the first XIFIN client to provide the ability to notify patients that they can retrieve their estimated out-of-pocket expense via text message, provide the ability for patients to approve the estimate, move forward, and prepay for the test all through the XIFIN RPM patient portal.
Recently, the Ambry Genetics operations team determined that its current revenue cycle management (RCM) system was neither robust nor scalable enough to meet growing demand and corporate objectives. Like many genetic labs with customized testing solutions, Ambry struggled with how to best provide its patients and physicians price transparency during the ordering process. The company sought an RCM solution to facilitate and enhance the patient experience, provide business intelligence that integrates with its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, and gain multi-faceted services and expertise.
The Ambry team was quick to make use of many of the XIFIN RPM capabilities and prioritized the utilization of the patient out-of-pocket expense estimator and the patient portal. XIFIN and Ambry collaborated on the development of additional methods of communicating with patients with respect to the out-of-pocket expenses. Through this cooperative approach, XIFIN developed near real-time text and email notifications to patients when their patient responsibility estimations were ready for review. Ambry is the first XIFIN client to provide the ability to notify patients that they can retrieve their estimated out-of-pocket expense via text message, provide the ability for patients to approve the estimate, move forward, and prepay for the test all through the XIFIN RPM patient portal.
