When Jim’s wife needed a procedure, they turned to their insurance for support, only to find out that they had a high unmet deductible. They needed another option – and that’s when they found MDsave.
“I’m one of the original founding leadership team members of the Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP) and currently serve on the AIHP board. My wife and I own an inn in Texas called the Inn on Lake Granbury.
Recently, my wife needed to have an MRI procedure completed. We started to look at options and turned to our major insurance for support. I remember looking at our deductible and saying, ‘Gosh, our deductible is pretty high. Are there any other options available to us where we can pay out-of-pocket for this particular procedure and save money?’
So we started to look for something else where we could save money and that was out of the standard insurance process.”
IS THAT HOW YOU FOUND MDSAVE?
“Yes. I searched ‘out of pocket healthcare service providers’ and found MDsave! So I said, ‘Okay, let’s check this out!’
We researched the services that MDsave offers and how it all works. I told my wife, ‘Well, this might be the better way to go about it.’ So instead of using our deductible based insurance, we turned to MDsave.
I searched for a nearby location and found a provider that was close to us in Granbury, Texas. The provider was only about 20-30 minutes away from our home.”
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE?
“We contacted the facility and they said, ‘Yes! You can come in for the MRI and use MDsave and it would cost $400 out of pocket.’ The facility helped us with purchasing the procedure and making the appointment. After we made our payment, they sent us a voucher to use for the actual service.
We were so happy with our experience. If we had used our standard insurance, the procedure would have been over $1,500. It was a huge savings for us! My wife was very satisfied with the MRI experience and happy with MDsave. That’s how we became customers of MDsave!”
MDSAVE RECENTLY PARTNERED WITH CARECREDIT! TELL US WHAT YOU THINK:
“I was actually introduced to CareCredit through my dentist. I needed to pay for some dental work that was expensive. When I first contacted CareCredit, they gave me helpful information and approved me the same day. It was a very simple process! I used the CareCredit credit card to cover the costs of all my dental work and I paid it over a period of time. I appreciated not having to outlay the cash upfront in a very short period of time. That really helped me a lot! And I know I can use CareCredit for my healthcare costs too.
It’s great to know there’s a financing option available for those who need something as simple as an x-ray or something as big as a surgery. My experience with CareCredit was as smooth and easy as it was with MDsave.”
WHAT WOULD YOU TELL SOMEONE NEW TO SHOPPING FOR HEALTHCARE?
“Don’t assume you have to always use your unmet deductible if you need to pay for healthcare. I would tell other innkeepers… what are you waiting for! Seriously, just try it. It’s easy, simple, and affordable. Now you know that you can use MDsave if you ever get in a position when it comes to paying for healthcare out of pocket. It will save you money!”
