We're committed to a spine surgery financing program that benefits both the patient and the provider.

American HealthCare Lending (AHCL) exhibited its innovative spine surgery financing platform at the North American Spine Society (NASS) 2014 Annual Meeting. The NASS Annual Meeting was held November 12-15 in San Francisco and is the world's largest spine meeting and exhibition. At the event, spine care professionals from around the globe shared the latest information, innovative techniques and procedures, best practices, and new technologies. AHCL had the opportunity to demonstrate its Financing as a Service™ (FaaS™) platform and explain how it is revolutionizing patient financing and helping to make spine surgery more affordable.

With the implementation of The Affordable Care Act, the manner in which patients pay for healthcare has changed dramatically. The average patient share of payments for healthcare has increased from 5% in 2000 to over 30% in 2013. Out-of-pocket payments are projected to hit $420 billion by 2015, a 68 percent increase in only five years. With this large increase in patient responsibility, healthcare providers are searching for ways to make their services more affordable. “Spine surgery can be a life-changing experience for the patient. These rising costs associated with the surgeries shouldn’t be the reason for patients to not obtain the treatment they need. We’re here to make this experience affordable for as many people as possible,” says Shaun Sorensen, CEO of AHCL.

American HealthCare Lending is proud to offer patients a healthy financing option for any expense related to spine surgery, including surgeries not covered by insurance, as well as deductibles, medications, and aftercare. Its simple interest loans have no prepayment penalties, no retroactive interest and longer terms for lower monthly payments. In addition, the loan inquiry process does not negatively impact the patient’s credit and only takes minutes for the patient to complete on any device.

“We’re committed to a spine surgery financing program that benefits both the patient and the provider. The loan product is healthy for the patient, and providers can access real-time reporting and dashboards to ensure they can help as many patients as possible,” adds Sorensen.
