BLIS is focused on providing access to care by removing financial barriers.
Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
BLIS, Inc. has partnered with American HealthCare Lending to make ‘BLISPay’ patient financing available for expenses related to orthopedic procedures performed by BLIS approved surgeons.
The partnership establishes low monthly payment plans for orthopedic procedures in amounts between $2,000 and $100,000. An online application process provides immediate approval decisions. Once approved, patients can receive funds in their bank account in as little as five days.
American HealthCare Lending offers competitive interest rates and some of the longest terms in the industry to allow for low monthly payment options. No down payments or collateral are required, and there are no penalties for prepayment. “With the changes brought on by the Affordable Care Act, we’ve seen patient responsibility reach all time highs and deductibles increasing at a faster pace than ever before. BLIS has been a innovator for years and saw this opportunity to provide more options and better service to their customers,” says Shaun Sorensen, President & CEO of American Healthcare Lending. “We’re thrilled to be working together and see nothing but success ahead.”
This orthopedic surgery financing program is only available for use in orthopedic surgical practices where surgeons have been approved to participate in the BLISCare complication insurance protection plan. BLISCare insures surgeons who can then protect their patients against additional medical costs should a covered complication occur during their orthopedic procedure.
“BLIS is focused on providing access to care by removing financial barriers,” says Regi Schindler, BLIS CEO. “Orthopedic surgery is a new line of business for us. Our BLISCare product is now in use with a select number of the highest quality orthopedic surgery programs in the country. As the surgery market continues to evolve with more and more out of pocket financial responsibility resides with patients. Now with our BLISPay lending program we can assist them with up front costs.”
BLISPay loan inquiries and requests for more information, including collateral materials, should be directed to Kim Brown, Direct of Client Services for BLIS, Inc., at 1-800-805-4075.
