Payment Processing Solutions for Healthcare
Healthcare providers that are serious about capturing payments at the time of service are increasingly accepting credit and debit cards in order to provide patients the option of paying deductibles and co-pays with a card.
With their permission, patients’ credit or debit cards can also be billed for deductibles, coinsurance and other balances after the time of service. Some practices are even taking card payments on their websites, facilitating the sale of ancillary services or the reduction of outstanding balances. In the process, they are enjoying many benefits, including:
Improved cash flow – When you receive payment for services at the time they’re rendered, there’s more cash available to sustain and grow your practice.
Reduced billing costs – When charges are paid up front, your staff isn’t tied up creating, mailing and following up on invoices.

Payment Acceptance Solutions Designed for Healthcare
At one time, all that was really important was for your front desk to get a copy of the patient’s insurance card.
Now, they usually need to investigate further: Is this a Health Savings Account? Has the patient met the deductible? Do co-pays apply? What payments need to be collected?
