New option, provided through InstaMed electronic payment network, makes it easier for patients to see what they owe and pay all their doctors.
United Healthcare, one of the two largest health insurers in the U.S., set an important precedent when it recently announced its introduction of an online bill payment service that enables United members to pay their bills to healthcare providers by credit card or bank transfer.
