Advanced Podiatry has enrolled with UMA to schedule appointments for patients that are self pay. UMA is better known as "hassle-free healthcare," also known as Urgent Medical access. UMA Health is an insurance free platform that allows patients to bypass insurance, schedule an appointment and pay for their visit - before ever walking through the door! It's the quickest, easiest way to schedule a doctor's visit. Here's a link tot: umahealth.com.
The concept was actually conceived by the #1 ranked podiatrist in the U.S. by RateMDs.com, Dr. Pedram Hendizadeh.
UMA's goal is to help patients with high deductible insurance plans or who have no insurance coverage determine the cost of care prior to the visit. When patients book an appointment through UMA, they are able to:
- Find the best prices for doctor visits and earn reward dollars
- Bypass insurance and know exactly what they're paying (no surprise bills months later!)
- Find quality care in the New York area
- Book an appointment with just a few taps
- Have on-demand care when you need it the most
Many patients with high deductible insurance plans are unaware of what their medical costs prior to their medical evaluation. This leads to confusion and frustration when they receive their bills months later in the mail.
How long has UMA been around? The idea for UMA has been in the seed since January 2016. UMA has just launched in March of 2017, with the platform growing rapidly.
The current healthcare system is broken and unsustainable. UMA Health is here to help.
