This program was written for my personal use as I work for health insurance company. Every day I find myself struggling to calculate how much to pay the provider while keeping in mind the deductible, out of pocket max, and payment ratio. A couple years ago I created an excel app that completed the calculation for me and I chose to port this to the Pre as my first distrubuted application. Not many people at all will use this for it's intended purpose but I'm sure there is at least one other person out there who could use this.
How it works
This program is written to calculate how much payment goes to the provider from the insurance company and how much comes from the patient to the provider. You type in the total deductible (abbrev. ded), how much of the ded has been used, the total out of pocket (abbrev. opx), the used opx, the allowed amount for the service or claim, and the payment ratio in decimal format.
Keep in mind that when entering the ratio you are inputting it as how much payment comes from the insurance company to the provider, not how much comes from the patient. For example, if the company pays 80% of the allowed amount and the patient pays 20% of the allowed amount, input the ratio as .8.
This, being my first real program, is in the very beginning stages and I'm sure there are many updates to come.
This is open source so feel free to use the code as you please and i would highly appreciate if anybody could give me any tips on improving my application.
Latest update: Version 1.0.0 8/14/09
Calculations are now exact, copays have been added.
