“Patients are very ecstatic and thankful when they realize that now there is a patient financing option to allow them to get treatment.”
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 12, 2015
With locations in Lexington, Louisville and London, Kentucky, Ageless Medical Weight Loss Center and Med Spa just finished their first full year with iCare Financial. Offering iCare to patients has enabled this health care center to serve a wider client base and get more patients the weight loss results that they are seeking.
Securing a Non-Credit Based Patient Option
Ageless Medical Weight Loss Center chose iCare Financial after researching potential lenders that offered patient financing approvals that were not based on credit. They wanted to find a way to help their patients who needed care, but had a less than optimal financial history. Their goal was to offer services to all patients, and not just the ones who were approved for financing.
Since the time that they began offering iCare Financial, Ageless Medical Weight Loss Center has been able to get patients approved that otherwise would have never been able to benefit from their program.
More than Just the Standard Weight Loss Center
The weight loss programs offered by Ageless Medical Weight Loss Center are medically supervised and customized for each patient. The program includes a nutrition education, lifestyle modification, individual one-one-on coaching, and long term maintenance strategies under the supervision of a team of medical professionals. In addition to weight loss services, The Center offers cosmetic procedures and aesthetic services including Botox, chemical peels, and laser services.
Ageless Medical Weight Loss Center sees a cross spectrum of patients. Some need to lose 30-40 pounds. Others have had bariatric surgery and reversed the process. Now they are in dire need of help. Director of Operations Mr. William Shea points out, “Often we are their last stop for treatment.”
Typically, iCare financing is used for two main services at the Center – medically supervised weight loss programs and for Coolsculpting, which is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment.
Mr. Shea points out that offering iCare has likely increased the patient base by 15%-20%. In the past, they ran into a common scenario. People would come in for free consultations and be eager to start their services. However, when they went to apply for credit, they’d get turned down. Mr. Shea’s goal was to create new options for all patients, not just ones with good credit.
Before implementing iCare Financial, Ageless Medical Weight Loss Center may have never even met patients who may have assumed that there was no way they could afford treatment. However, now that iCare’s patient financing program is offered it gives patients a motivating factor to pick up the phone and call. Further, patients who have successfully secured funding through iCare Financial consistently refer the Ageless Center to their family and friends.
Promoting Their Flexible Payment Options
The center has been proactively promoting the fact that they offer iCare Financial. Not only is it on the payment page of their website, but the Center also promotes this payment option through their social media pages, television commercials, and door decals. They even distribute information in the counseling room that explains how they offer non-credit based payment options so that they can serve all patients.
However, Mr. Shea selected iCare because he was genuinely looking for a program that would allow him to help more clients to lead happier and healthier lives.
He explained, “Patients are very ecstatic and thankful when they realize that now there is a patient financing option to allow them to get treatment.”
