Frequently Asked Questions

Medical Bill Negotiator ("MBN ") provides expert medical bill review and negotiation services to save employees money.
Member scan access the MBN 's bill negotiation portal by visiting the link in their MedCareComplete account. Bills should be entered in the MBN portal only.
The MBN 's Negotiation Specialists are very respectful of patient/provider relationships. We work collaboratively with all medical providers. Providers benefit from the negotiation because the MBN corrects anomalies in billing, informs them about the"market" cost for procedures, gets them paid faster and reduces the risk of uncollectible bills.
The MBN recommends that participants review bills before they pay for services. If you pay for medical services at time of delivery, you lose the opportunity to reduce cost through negotiation. The MBN will not be able to negotiate a bill you have already paid. However, if you have pre-paid a portion of the bill, the balance is negotiable.
Medical Bill Negotiator typically works on a success based fee structure. As a MedCareComplete member there is no additional charge for the negotiation as long as your bill exceeds $400 and you can enter a charge card for payment to the provider.
The MBN will authorize the participant's credit/debitcard to ensure sufficient funds are available to pay the bill, prior to commencing the negotiation. If the provider has agreed to reduce the bill, the MBN will enable the provider to charge the participant's card for the reduced amount of the bill only. With the MBN successfully negotiating a bill, there are no additional efforts required of the participant to pay the provider.
If the MBN does not save money negotiating the bill, we do not pay the provider and we drop the authorization on the card.
Can I use a debit card? Participants can use a credit or debit card. The MBN accepts VISA, MasterCard and American Express. The MBN also accepts most debit cards from health savings accounts (HSAs) and personal checking.
