Prompt Payment Discount

InterMed offers a discount of services for uninsured, self-pay patients.

A self-pay patient:

  • Is responsible — either personally or through a guarantor — for the payment of all charges assessed for services provided to the patie
  • Does not have health insurance coverage.

This discount does not apply to insurance deductibles and co-payments.


Discounts

Any patient meeting the above definition of self pay will be eligible for a 40 percent discount if payment is made at the time of service. An estimate will be provided at the time of checkout.

  • If an overpayment is made, a refund will be issued.
  • If total charges exceed the estimate amount, an additional balance will be billed to the patient.

Services outside of the physician services, such as laboratory tests, where a cost cannot be determined at the time of service, will be eligible for a standard 30 percent discount. Balances must be paid within 30 days of the first statement to receive the 30 percent discount.


Exceptions – Outside organizations

The Prompt Pay Discount does not apply to charges billed by an organization outside of InterMed. Outside charges may include, but are not limited to:

  • Outside lab processing
  • Radiologist interpretation of imaging services

New Patients

Payment for physician services must be paid in full at the time of service. These are eligible for a 40 percent discount.


Established Patients

Payment of at least 50 percent of the charges must be paid at the time of service, eligible for a 40 percent discount.


Payment Plan Options

If payment in full is not made at the time of service, an interest-free payment plan may be made by contacting the Business Office Customer Service at (207) 828-0361.

  • Account balances may be split up to a maximum of four monthly payments.
  • If the patient is unable to pay a monthly payment based off the payment term of six (6) months, the patient must contact the Business Office Customer Service at (207) 828-0361 to discuss alternate options.

Note: Only one discount policy per patient/family.
