Bedminster, NJ and San Francisco, CA, July 23, 2019 Zelis Healthcare, a healthcare technology company and market-leading provider of integrated healthcare cost management and payments solutions, and Amino, a leading healthcare financial wellness platform, today launched RBP Guidance, a disruptive healthcare navigation experience that enables employers and healthcare consumers to more easily understand and evaluate Reference Based Pricing (RBP) health benefit plans.

RBP is an increasingly popular health plan design that sets predetermined or ‘reference’ maximum reimbursement amounts for healthcare services.

RBP Guidance quickly surfaces providers who are likely to accept RBP reimbursements and well-qualified based on consumer-input search terms. Using Amino “Smart Match,” it also highlights providers’ educational experience, patient reviews and facilities with high safety grades. This guidance can help make quality healthcare more affordable, reduce balance billing by healthcare providers and improve the overall healthcare experience for consumers nationwide.

“At Zelis, we are focused on helping reduce the rising cost of healthcare. RBP Guidance is an exciting new consumer experience purpose-built to help make quality healthcare more affordable for all of us,” said Doug Klinger, Zelis CEO.

“Regardless of your health insurance plan, it’s hard to navigate our country’s healthcare system. Since Amino’s inception, we have helped people conveniently and confidently make smart healthcare choices in this challenging environment. RBP Guidance will help lift the burden of finding and paying for care under a reference based pricing plan.” said David Vivero, CEO and Co-Founder of Amino.
