How It Works

 

Create Your Profile – Answer some basic health questions (height, weight, allergies, etc) and create a user ID and password. Creating a profile is FREE!

Create a Request - Ask for what you need. If you aren’t sure or don’t have a diagnosis yet, ask for a consultation with a specialist. Requests can be for anything from an annual checkup with a new family physician or an MRI to bring to your current ear nose and throat doctor, to something more complex like a total knee replacement surgery or Lasik eye surgery. Whatever your medical need is, you can make a request for it on MediBid. You can upload up to 5 images from your doctor to help the specialists reviewing your medical request give you the most accurate Bid.

Collect Bids – Review the physicians and facilities that were matched with you. If you see any you like, you can ask them to submit a Bid on your medical request, or you can wait a few days and see who gives you a Bid on their own. Your Bid will include some very basic information, including the cost and what is or is not included in that price. You will soon see how affordable medical care can be when you get the real price, rather than the billing price. After looking over your Bid, you can review the profile of the physician or facility that gave you the Bid and decide if they are the right match for you. Remember, MediBid isn’t about finding the most affordable medical professional or facility; it is about having a choice. In fact, we have a wide range of medical specialists with a range of prices, including popular medical tourism destination hospitals. Find a doctor, surgeon, or dentist that is right for you.

Accept a Bid – When you find the physician or facility that is the right choice for you, click “Accept this Bid”, and you will instantly be provided with the Bidder’s contact information. They will also be provided with yours. Now that you have the phone number to contact the doctor, call them and schedule an appointment. Unlike other medical directory websites and doctor finder resources, MediBid has helped you get a custom price quote up front directly from the doctor based on your unique needs, which means you can spend a lot less time on the phone. Just tell them you accepted their Bid on MediBid. They’ll be expecting you. It’s completely private and secure, and once you choose your doctor, the entire relationship is directly between you and the doctor.

Connect – Make an appointment with the specialist, and pay the doctor at the time of your visit. You already know how much the visit or treatment is going to cost you, so walk in confident that you are going to see a great doctor at the best value for their services. Any modifications to the agreed upon treatment and price are between you and the physician, such as adding on liposuction to your plastic surgery or a round of dental whitening while you’re at the dentist’s office.

Fees – You can create a profile for free, but in order to create a request and view the information and Bids from physicians, paid registration is required. Family members can share a registration. Each request can receive an unlimited number of Bids from physicians registered with MediBid.

Bid Request Fees: $25 for one medical request or sign up with MediBid for $4.95 per month, for a 12 month term with unlimited requests. There are no refunds for these request fees. If you terminate the monthly option prior to the 12 months, you will be charged the balance due.
