Patient Army Inc: ” PatientArmy is a crowd-sourced marketplace that gets money back on your medical bills by resolving billing errors.”
Healthcare is broken. Medical billing errors cost patient $110B a year annually. Over 100 million health insurance claims are declined each year and a majority of them are wrongfully denied. Detecting and fixing these errors are challenging, as it requires analyzing and cross-referencing jargon-loaded bills, medical records and insurance coverage details. PatientArmy makes medical billing advocacy accessible to consumers by making it easy for patients to find answers to questions on their medical bill.
