how it works
ACCEPT OUR PRICES
Accepting our prices means you are highlighted in our search tool as a Start affiliate who charges the same amount or less than our set reimbursement rates.* This simplifies getting care for both you and your Start patients.
GET PAID AT SERVICE
Start patients self-pay with their Start Benefit Card so you get paid upfront at the time of service. That means no more “chasing the check” or spending valued time with your patients processing complex claims.
PROVIDE AN ITEMIZED RECEIPT
Patients will provide Start with an itemized bill from your office that will later be submitted for reimbursement of their expense. The itemized receipt will include key details about their visit with you.**
what we offer
Start is a network-free, HSA-qualified, healthcare reimbursement model that makes healthcare simple—the way it should be.
“chasing the check”
So, what’s the real cost of “chasing the check?” As much as $210 billion is spent per year on claims processing. Providers spend up to 14% of their revenue in medical billing costs to submit claims and help ensure accurate payments from insurers.
what’s in it for you?
Avoid a traditionally laborious claims process altogether. Offering cash-pay discounts will leave patients with a positive experience, and save you time “chasing the check.”
Healthcare should be transparent and shoppable like most of the market. By partnering with Start, you’ll help patients save time, money, and kickstart long-needed change.
Members who were previously unaware of your services can discover you in our unique Search Portal when you partner with us to offer cash-pay discount. Consider it a provider spotlight.
