CARE QUOTE PROGRAM LAUNCHES AT JACKSON HEALTH SYSTEM

Program Provides Price Transparency for Services 24/7

Miami, FL – Jackson Health System launched Care Quote today – a free price estimator for healthcare services which will benefit patients at many of our major hospitals. Care Quote will provide patients with more information about their out-of-pocket spending, empowering them to make informed decisions about their health care.

Unlike traditional healthcare price estimators, which rely on averages, Care Quote will check the patients’ individual insurance information to provide more accurate quotes based on insurance plan design, deductibles, co-insurance, and more. The program also assists patients who currently do not have health insurance, by allowing them the opportunity to research cash prices.

“We believe Jackson’s world-class clinical excellence and our commitment to price transparency is an important step toward improving healthcare delivery throughout Miami-Dade County,” said Mark T. Knight, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Jackson Health System. “Care Quote is a powerful tool that gives patients and their loved ones more control, more knowledge, and more financial security about their treatment.”

Care Quote is easy to use. To obtain a free quote, patients can either complete a form online, or place a phone call to a patient advocate, who will explain the program, discuss the treatment needed, and securely record the patient’s information. Following the completion of the initial request, patients receive an estimate within three business days. Estimates provided are valid from the day that the patient receives the quote.

Quotes are available for services at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Jackson North Medical Center, and Jackson South Community Hospital.

Care Quote is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 305-585-CARE (2273) or by visiting www.JacksonCareQuote.org.
