New Options to Help Simplify and Manage Healthcare Bills

As healthcare expenses continue to rise, the struggle to afford necessary medical care seems impossible. We want to simplify the way you manage and pay your healthcare bill and reduce unnecessary stress. Listed below are finance options which may fit within your budget so you can access the care you need right away.

For balances of $500 or less, we accept payments according to the following plan:

Minimum Payment - $75 per month

Auto Deduct Requirement – we will require a signed agreement authorizing us to deduct the $75 monthly payment directly from the guarantor’s bank account on the same day each month

$500 Balance Limit – the payment agreement will remain in force until the account is paid in full or the statement balance grows and exceeds $500. 

For Balances in Excess of $500
