We're equipped to help cash pay patients afford their bariatric surgery, but we also are here to help patients afford their high deductibles so they can get the treatment they deserve.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
American HealthCare Lending (AHCL) will showcase its weight loss surgery financing platform at ObesityWeek, which will be held November 2-7 in Boston. ObesityWeek focuses on weight loss surgery and examines topics relating to cutting edge science of obesity, advances in clinical management of obesity, and obesity public policy. American HealthCare Lending will explain how they make bariatric surgery affordable through their innovative patient financing platform.
Major shifts in the U.S. healthcare system, and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, have dramatically altered the way healthcare providers receive payments. Bariatric surgery professionals have worked for years to help patients afford bariatric surgery even when faced with a high out-of-pocket expense, but a new challenge has emerged in high deductibles. In 2013 alone, deductibles rose by 154%, and are continuing to rise, creating a new demographic in need of bariatric surgery financing.
American HealthCare Lending has spent years developing a product for bariatric surgery centers to Make Healthcare Affordable™. Shaun Sorensen, CEO of AHCL explains, “Patients that had a $2,000 deductible two years ago are now walking into a surgery center with a $5,000 or $10,000 deductible. Not many people are able to write a check for that amount, and a high-interest credit card may put them in a very difficult spot financially.”
AHCL loans cover all procedures and treatments associated with bariatric surgery, including revisions, medications, deductibles, and aftercare.
“We’re equipped to help cash pay patients afford their bariatric surgery, but we also are here to help patients afford their high deductibles so they can get the treatment they deserve,” continues Sorensen. “Our cloud-based technology allows patients to submit an application from anywhere and on any device. We want the financial portion of their bariatric surgery experience to be easy and pain free.”
Representatives for American HealthCare Lending will be attending the conference to answer any questions, and will be located at booth #636.
