“I’m the Diagnostic Imaging Supervisor at CHI Health Plainview. I’ve been with the hospital for 12 years now. We’ve been promoting MDsave within the last two years. Our patients love MDsave–they’re very grateful for it.”
“My husband and I have both used MDsave.”
“Last year, my husband needed a CT scan and lab work. We saved almost $9,000 through MDsave. Because of MDsave, we decided to get on a high deductible plan. It prompted me to go in that direction because of the savings, which allow us to continue to build our HSA account for future medical expenses.”
How do you use MDsave at your hospital?
“My employees and the staff at CHI Health Plainview are excited about MDsave, especially telling patients who have no insurance about the program. It really helps patients avoid too much debt and still allows them to get the care they need.
We’ve seen improvements in productivity, especially for our labs. Due to the COVID crisis, people were not coming in for their routine visits or illnesses. Because of MDsave, it has helped our lab department increase productivity since they’re getting more patients that are coming in for their exams and labs now.”
Who is using MDsave at CHI Plainview?
“Those who have a high deductible plan, like me. When I first heard about MDsave, I started to research to fully understand it. That’s when I decided to change my insurance and switch our coverage to a high deductible plan.
Our goal was to try to save money in our HSA, so that we save enough money for retirement to help us with our copays and deductibles as we age. So, from the financial perspective, it was wonderful for me.”
What factors have led to your success with MDsave?
“Spreading the word! Promoting MDsave by word of mouth. My personal experience has helped a lot because I’m passionate about it myself and I think our patients can see that when I’m explaining and offering MDsave to them. It excites them because I’m excited about it.”
