The MediDebt online database is a ‘Default Patient Payment Control System’ that allows members to share information about a defaulter’s credit history. The system allows its members to lodge the defaulter’s details onto the database and to inquire on information that may be listed by other members on our database
NOTE: MediDebt complies with Federal and State Privacy Legislation.
Does this happen to you... Mr Krafty, has treatment but does not pay on the day, promising to return and pay on the next appointment. Instead he goes to the practice down the road and gets the rest of the treatment done, never to show his face to either of the practices to pay his bills.
He knows that you are too busy to get seriously involved in the litigation process.
Now members of MediDebt can check an online national database and refuse treatment if Mr. Krafty has an outstanding amount owed at another member’s practice. When all members together decline services to blacklisted defaulters, it compels them to return and pay the outstanding amount.
DEFAULTER IS CAUGHT IN A CYCLE THAT PREVENTS THEM FROM GOING DOWN THE ROAD AND ACCESSING SERVICES FROM RIVALS WHILE YOU HAVE BEEN LEFT WITH THEIR DEBT.
1. All MediDebt members can immediately view or check the credit worthiness of default patients as soon as you have listed them onto the database.
2. Banks and Financial institutions can view information only
• After 60 days have elapsed from the date payment was due.
• If the amount owing is above $100.
From MediDebt’s website you can download and print easy step by step instructions on how to use the database (How to use MediDebt online).
