ABOUT US
"Intelligent" Referral Platform

PayersDirect is a cloud-based online healthcare provider marketplace, directly connecting the largest network of high quality imaging centers, radiologists and physical therapists to self-insured employers, insurance companies, third party administrators, PPOs and patients.

Think of us as "Expedia" for diagnostic exams and physical therapy services, where you can "intelligently" find and book the best providers in the least amount of time at the lowest price.  All this without wasting time on the phone with some network call center and without choosing blindly from a provider directory.

Our Winning Combination

Open access to almost every provider + Proprietary ranking system + 100% transparency of choices + Direct provider-set prices, without any middleman markup + 90-second referrals + Real-time appointment tracking + Integrated patient smartphone engagement.

We believe smarter is better and full transparency gets you the best value for your purchasing dollar.

Quicker.  Better.  Smarter.  Closer.  Lower Prices.
