“Today’s marketplace is desperate for viable and secure alternatives to the archaic PPO model, offering flexibility, transparency and open access to healthcare,” stated David Lubowitz, JD, MBA, Managing Director of Assent. ”We have responded to this market demand with a product backed by Assent’s industry-leading legal, medical and technological expertise. Our customizable price-setting solutions result in true and reasonable maximum reimbursements based upon the specific goals of the plan.”

MAXpay offers clients all-encompassing support, including plan document revision, world-class customer service and educational materials for payors and employer groups. MAXpay also offers ongoing patient advocacy and continued education, a toll free 24/7 call center, and hands-free balance billing support to plan members.

Employing MAXpay’s extensive data, enterprise-class technology and claims editing and scrubbing, savings are proven to be deeper than those available through PPOs. ”MAXpay works because it aligns the interests of providers, insurers and plan members,” stated Sandy Hamilton, MSW, Assent’s Senior Business Development Executive. ”Through transparency and communication, we are able to satisfy all stakeholders with an equitable and sustainable strategy.”
