Beaufort Memorial Hospital (BMH) is now offering discounts to patients with no health insurance or those with high-deductible plans, for a wide range of medical services through MDsave, an online healthcare marketplace.
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the hospital will offer $99 screening mammograms through MDsave during October. Mammograms are available in both Bluffton and Beaufort and can be purchased online at MDSave.com/Beaufort through Oct. 31.
Beaufort Memorial is the only hospital in the area participating in the cost-saving program.
The plan works like this: Simply select your service and preferred location at MDSave.com/Beaufort, pay online and receive a voucher for the procedure. Make an appointment for your mammogram and when you go in for your appointment, turn in the voucher.
Payment must be made by Oct. 31, but appointments can be after that date.
By paying upfront, patients can receive up to 60 percent off the average rates for many other services, including lab work, imaging tests, physical therapy, primary care visits and a variety of same-day surgeries - and avoid complicated hospital billing.
Rather than receive separate invoices from the hospital and physicians, the services are bundled into one bill and paid directly to MDsave.
To make an appointment for a mammogram, call 843-522-5015.
