  2. How Does Impact Actually Work?

Does Impact try to keep a certain amount of money in each Member's account?

It is an industry's best practice to share and pay members’ Eligible Medical Bills quickly once they are deemed eligible per the Guidelines. 

Pursuant to industry’s best practices, once a member’s medical bills are determined eligible under the Guidelines, Impact shares and pays the member’s Eligible Medical Bills promptly.

For this reason, we target a Share Amount that will enable members to build balances in their accounts equivalent to 1-4 months of Sharing. Consequently, bills can be Shared and paid within 30 days, helping to maintain a favorable view of Impact’s members with medical providers.
