New program offers patients better health and greater peace of mind with an affordable payment option through U.S. October 09, 2012
NTC Texas, a payment processor representing revenue-cycle solutions throughout the United States, announced that it will be distributing PaymentCare™ Patient Finance from U.S...This funding option enhances payment assurance, improves cash flow, and increases treatment acceptance by giving patients an easy way to pay for the care they need, when they need it.
“We are very pleased to partner with NTC Texas to bring a leading financial solution to patients and providers,” says Ralph Bernstein, SVP of Emerging Strategies and Innovation for U.S. Bank Corporate Payments Systems. “As individuals assume a greater share of their healthcare costs, and look for new ways to pay for that care, affordable financing becomes a critical payment tool for them. Patient Finance also gives healthcare providers the administrative support they need to deliver the best care in the most cost-effective manner.”
As the trend towards consumer directed healthcare grows, high deductibles and co-pays have made it increasingly more difficult for the average patient to afford healthcare services. "NTC Texas and U.S. Bank are committed to helping patients pay their medical bills over time and at the same time assist healthcare providers in collecting funds up front for medically necessary procedures,” says Linda Borek, President and CEO of NTC Texas.
