Payment Bundling Insurance Term
It is when different health care providers treating for the same/similar conditions are paid a total amount for the services.Example:Raj went to a primary care Doctor and was told to get an X-ray for the ankle pain hes experiencing. Raj was then referred to a secondary care Doctor (Orthopedic) who told him to undergo surgery. Raj is charged for the costs before surgery and after. The payment bundling option will accumulate all the payments and consolidate a final bill to avoid unnecessary expenses, errors and duplication of tests.
