Care organization, Medi Assist makes it possible for members to access in-patient and out-patient medical care in a cashless format using a mobile app.
Medi Assist, a managed care organization, is helping Indians ease the burden of managing medical expenses by converting them into cashless. The recent demonetization of high denomination notes and the ongoing currency crunch in the urban and rural areas alike has left many Indian families troubled about their immediate and imminent medical spend.
Medi Assist is enabling its members to conveniently schedule their preferred medical services online using their MediBuddy mobile app (Android/ Apple iOS) as well as availing all services covered under their health benefits policy in a cashless format.
Healthcare is a recurring and expensive need for every family. For such expenses, one usually transacts with notes of higher denomination; and the demonetization has left many an Indian family in a difficult situation temporarily.
“With access to our pan-Indian network of over 6000 hospitals, Medi Assist members can conveniently opt for cashless hospitalization at their preferred city, at their preferred network hospital and with a doctor of their choice. And they can do so using just their MediBuddy mobile app, from the comfort of their home, and opting for an eCashless hospitalization,” says Satish Gidugu, COO, Medi Assist.
Cashless care is an efficient manner to utilize health benefits. It allows policy-holders to enjoy green channel admission with minimal out of pocket expenditure, and reduce their overall cost of care by using the preferred tariffs enabled by TPAs at network hospitals.
“We have been evangelizing cashless hospitalization for several years now, and recent efforts of the government provide a fillip to our efforts. There is no better time than now to usher in the era of cashless healthcare in the country,” adds Satish.
