Who We Are
Let’s face it – big health insurers use data collected through their Coordination of Benefits (COB) process to know exactly what other insurers are paying your hospital. Why shouldn’t your hospital have access to similar data showing exactly what insurers are paying your competitors?
FlexPoint Health was founded in 2010 knowing that healthcare providers are disadvantaged by the lack of reliable contract rate intelligence available to them. Until now, providers have been forced to rely on market information based on average payment rates, outdated, and full of holes. In almost no other industry are companies so blinded to the data behind how they compete. Providers lack meaningful contract rate data that shows precisely how their rates compare to those of their competition, and that sets them up for failure. FlexPoint’s mission is to provide healthcare providers the data they desperately need to level the playing field once and for all.
FlexPoint Health is the only company in the United States providing healthcare providers with their competitors’ actual negotiated reimbursement rates.
Patient Claims Data Derived Exclusively from Your Market
We deliver customized and affordable reimbursement rate reports based on current and prior year claims data procured directly and exclusively from patients in your market.
The Most Current and Precise Data Available in the Industry
Our one-of-a-kind service delivers rate intelligence that is current and precise. We can show you exactly what each insurer is reimbursing each provider in your local market. For the first time, you won’t have to make pricing decisions based on blended averages and old data that all other data vendors offer.
Take Control & Dominate at the Negotiating Table
Insurers are good at convincing you that your rates are at par or better than all of the other providers in your market. What data do you have to confirm what they are telling you? We provide you with concrete irrefutable evidence needed to control negotiations with insurers. With our data you will be able to negotiate contracts with competitive rates and defensible pricing.
