An increase in high-deductible health plans, along with the growth in the number of self-pay patients, has many healthcare providers looking for new and innovative ways to serve patients without the hassle of dealing with insurance companies or worrying if they will be paid at all.

Enter, a new healthcare marketplace that connects self-pay patients looking for affordable healthcare with a network of providers who recognize the value of price competition and transparency.

Since its controlled launch earlier this year, more than 300 providers in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties have joined MediXall’s network. Another 5,500 have registered and are in the pipeline completing their agreements. Providers who want to become part of this innovative and robust new platform must undergo a thorough credentialing process by a panel of experienced and respected physicians from a variety of specialties.

Once credentialed, they are assigned a client success manager who works with them to determine what kinds of services patients are looking for and to help package them in a consumer-friendly way so that patients know exactly what the cost is for the services they will receive when making an appointment.

“We are helping to bring healthcare providers cash paying patients, patients who pay before or at the time of the service, which helps providers with their problems with reimbursement,” says MediXall Group Inc. President Michael Swartz, who is responsible for bringing the platform to launch.

Before joining MediXall, Swartz was co-founder of Viridian Capital Advisors where he led all modeling and valuation work for the firm’s M&A and fundraising assignments.

There is no cost to join the network. Healthcare providers are only charged a technology fee when a patient books an appointment. Patients only pay for healthcare services they receive.

“We didn’t want a doctor to have to pay to be on the platform, so we have developed a model that de-risks the process. We charge a technology fee, so when a patient books an appointment, information is sent to the patient and provider – that facilitation of communication is how it is billed,” says Swartz. “The amount it costs a provider is directly related to the value they receive.”

With the click of a button, consumers can search for doctors and book appointments based on cost, distance, ratings, and availability. The network not only includes physicians, but also chiropractors, dentists, orthodontists, holistic medical practitioners, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists and a variety of diagnostic imaging services.

Swartz believes that with the proliferation of high-deductible health insurance, the time is ripe for MediXall.

“Five years ago, a customer of healthcare was insurance companies, payers and employers. But in the last couple of years we have been seeing more and more the trend of the patient being the customer of health care, that’s why we built this platform,” he says.

MediXall is poised for growth with plans to move into Central and North Florida shortly and eventually nationwide.
