Atlas Health specializes in identifying and securing non-government financial aid, tapping into more than $30 billion in available resources. If you don’t have a program in place, we can offer turnkey services to get you started quickly.  

By utilizing your specific CMS-reported outpatient Medicare claims data, Atlas can provide a tailored estimate of the annual patient assistance opportunity. This estimation helps uncover substantial funding that otherwise might go unutilized, ensuring your health system maximizes funding support available.  

Want to scale your existing program?  

The core mission of Atlas is to eliminate patient debt by proactively matching patients to suitable funding sources. Empower your existing team with a patient assistance automation platform to improve efficiency by up to 1000%.  

The award estimation process identifies potential savings in areas such as free drug programs and foundation programs. For uninsured or charity care patients, coverage denials and Medicare beneficiaries, the projected savings can amount to millions annually. These savings directly translate to reduced out-of-pocket expenses for patients and strengthen financial sustainability for providers.

What is the benefit of a fully scaled patient assistance program?

  • Improved patient outcomes and satisfaction: Financial stress is a significant barrier to patient satisfaction and positive health outcomes. By leveraging Atlas MAP, health systems can offer enhanced financial assistance to patients, ensuring they receive the necessary treatments without financial strain, reducing financial toxicity. This support leads to improved adherence to treatment plans, better health outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.
  • Streamlined operational efficiency: Atlas MAP utilizes AI-driven technology to streamline the process of matching, enrolling and awarding patient assistance. Automated workflows reduce administrative burden, allowing staff to focus on patient care rather than manual processes and paperwork. The efficiency gained through this automation not only saves time but also ensures accuracy in the submission and processing of patient assistance applications.
  • Access to expert financial navigation: Atlas MAP is built upon extensive experience in patient advocacy and financial navigation. Health systems benefit from this expertise through expert guidance and access to the largest network of funding sources. This support is invaluable in navigating the complexities of financial assistance, ensuring health systems can efficiently secure the maximum available patient assistance for their patients.
