New Platform Prioritizes Transparent Pricing While Expanding Direct Payment Experience for Patients

HealthMe™ ( and Tennessee Orthopaedic Alliance announced their partnership today, which will provide their patients a next generation digital payment and price transparency platform.  With the goal of helping their patients get the right care at the right cost, TOC will deploy HealthMe to advance their dedication to compassionate, conservative, and prompt care while also exceeding national standards for price transparency.

TOC selected HealthMe to advance their commitment in assuring that their patients receive information about purchasing healthcare in clear language that does not result in surprise bills. The partnership with HealthMe will offer bundled payment options for those seeking to pay directly for care apart from an in-network insurance plan. Bundle payments benefit self-pay patients, self-insured employers, patients with out-of-network insurance coverage, health sharing ministries, and anyone who bears the out-of-pocket expense for services.

“Supporting our mission to provide our patients with outstanding orthopedic care, we have partnered with HealthMe’s new digital payment platform.  A key component of this partnership is adopting the most innovative and consumer-friendly technology that will streamline the payment process while eliminating the headaches of confusing paperwork for our direct-pay patients,” commented Earl Anderson, CEO.  “Our partnership with HealthMe was specifically designed to streamline payments, establish price transparency, and meet the direct-pay needs of our patients.”

“Based on their commitment to practice excellence, innovation, and the consumer-focused transformation of healthcare, TOC is the perfect partner to launch our platform,” commented Mike Having, MD, HealthMe founder and CEO.  “We strive to lessen the burden of time-consuming paperwork for front office and eliminate billing hassles that enable doctors to optimize their time focused on patient care and not be distracted by unnecessary paperwork.”
