Revenue360 Pricing Estimator module evaluates three key data components:  Your charges, the patient’s charges, and the negotiated contract pricing between the hospital and the payer.  Producing an estimate that can be printed for the patient, Revenue360 summarizes their total charges, benefits and finally estimated out of pocket expenses.  By accurately estimating the patient’s financial obligations, you become a patient advocate on behalf of your hospital.
