How It Works
Create Your Profile
Create your own userID and password. Answer a few profile and basic health questions (height, weight, allergies, etc). Don’t forget to save your userID and password!
Create a Request
You can post a request for a specific need – hernia repair, hip replacement, colonoscopy, MRI, cataract surgery, a simple yearly physical or more. If you have a health problem but no diagnosis, you can ask for a consultation with a specialist. You will answer simple questions and give concise details and medical history. You can upload up to five images or documents for the doctor to review.
Bid Request Fees
In order to make your request available for the providers to bid on, there is a $100 fee per medical request. There are no refunds on request fees.
You may review the physicians and facilities that match your request by clicking on “Search Bidders for your Request” on your “My Requests” page. You can request a bid from those particular doctors you like or just wait for doctors to bid on your request. You will soon see true affordable, transparent cash pricing from physicians and facilities. You can also review their profile for things like Board Certifications or specialties. MediBid is not just about finding the lowest price. It’s about having a choice. Find a doctor, surgeon or facility that is right for you.
Accept a Bid
When you see a physician or facility that is right for you, click “Accept this Bid”. You will receive the contact information for the bidder promptly. They will be provided with yours as well. Now that you have a phone number, you can contact them to schedule an appointment. You will have an upfront price from the doctor or facility based on your unique needs which means you can spend a lot less time on the phone. It’s completely private and secure. Once you choose your doctor, the relationship is directly between you and the doctor. You will pay the doctor directly after you make the decision to use him/her.
Make an appointment with the specialist and pay the provider at the time of your service. You already know what the cost of your treatment or visit will cost ahead of time so, you can walk in confident that you will see a great doctor at the best value for their service. Any modifications to bids for additional services would be between both you and the provider.
