Patient Financial Clearance

Automate your patient financial assistance with Experian’s robust data

Andrew Pederson, Director, Patient Financial Experience at University of Colorado Health, talks about how Patient Financial Clearance automated their financial assistance process and empowered their staff to be more efficient.

It is estimated that around 41% of Americans face medical debti -- a situation compounded by high out-of-pocket costs and rising co-pays. Many patients are unaware of the various financial assistance they can access for their healthcare costs and are unsure about how to navigate this process. 

This is where Patient Financial Clearance comes in. Patient Financial Clearance determines which patients are likely to pay and connects those that potentially qualify for financial assistance with the right programs. Ensure health equity for patients and assist staff with automated screening utilizing Experian’s comprehensive data and analytics.
