Solidarity serves as the advocate for members by reviewing all bills. Solidarity will negotiate with the doctors and hospitals for discounts for bills greater than 150% of the Medicare reimbursement rates.
In addition, members of Solidarity do not have to worry about balance billings, where the doctor or hospital sends a bill to the patient after being paid by Solidarity. This is because Solidarity contractually agrees with the doctors and hospitals not to further bill the members of Solidarity.
Finally, you’ve likely heard stories or experienced first hand that if medical bills are not paid, the hospital turns the bills over to a collection agency. This usually does not happen with Solidarity because we negotiate the bills on your behalf. But in the unlikely event that it does, Solidarity has a credit protection service to assist members.
