How Does uMedMarket Work?
uMedMarket is an online shopping service for upstate South Carolina that makes shopping for healthcare easy!
We help you shop and save on high quality healthcare services. The price you see is what you pay, no suprises. We have searched among providers across upstate South Carolina to bring you the best services for the best prices from high quality providers. If you have a healthcare need not on our list of services, contact us. We can find any healthcare service you need at a great price. We also custom shop for surgical procedures, both outpatient surgery and hospital based surgery. If you have to pay out-of-pocket for a very expensive surgery, we can offer high quality international options that are a fraction of the cost of surgery in the US.
Step #1: Find the medical service you need 2 ways: On the Home Page shop by services or by location to find what you need.
Step #2: Add the service you need to your cart and then checkout.
Step #3: We will text or email you a secure link to your account on our HIPAA compliant secure cloud server within 24 hours of purchase. There you can download the voucher for your service and all the instructions you need for your service. At the same time, you must upload a phone photo of your doctor’s order for the labs or imaging. We need that order before you can be scheduled.
Step #4: The service provider will contact you directly to schedule your appointment. For labs and imaging, we must have received a copy of your doctor’s order before the provider will schedule your service.
We pay the provider before your appointment so you just show your voucher at your appointment and you are good to go. Ask the provider for a copy of the report. If you have insurance, you can use the report and payment receipt to request your insurer to apply the cost of service to your deductible. The insurer won’t always agree, because cash payment may be considered “out-of-network” but many times they will allow it. It’s that easy and you can call or email us for any questions. It’s that easy.
For any medical service not on our shopping list, we will custom shop that service for you, from a specific type of X-Ray that is not listed to knee surgery and cardiac bypass surgery. We will find options for you based on your priorities. If low cost is the primary objective, we can find high quality US providers for the service you need, though you may need to travel and stay in a hotel 1 or 2 nights. We can find ultra-low cost high quality options if you are willing to travel internationally. If quality/experience of the provider is the primary objective, we can find a provider that specializes in the service you need and performs the service at a high frequency. Again, you may need to travel and stay in a hotel overnight. Contact us, it’s that easy.
