DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartHealth PayCard, LLC,™ a healthcare FinTech pioneer committed to eliminating the financial burden of medical expenses to make healthcare more accessible, announces today that for the next 3 months it is waiving its first year annual fee for new card applicants to support Americans as we face the unprecedented coronavirus crisis. The goal is to enable people to always have access to primary care.
Existing cardholders of the SmartHealth PayCard™ Mastercard®, the nation’s innovative credit card dedicated solely to healthcare expenses, and new members take advantage of affordable options to pay for urgent care, high deductibles, and co-pays. Card members use a revolving credit line to cover preventative care, emergencies, dental, mental health, hearing, vision, medicines and more. They also enjoy a prescription program with savings up to 75% at pharmacies nationwide. Other benefits on the card include up to $5,000 in Accident Medical Expense benefits and $5,000 Accidental Death Insurance.
“The SmartHealth PayCard is a financial cure for healthcare,” says co-founder Jeff Blankinship. “In times of crisis and everyday, our card helps Americans focus on health, not on how to pay for it. And healthcare providers get paid immediately for their exceptional care.”
Healthcare costs cause millions of Americans to skip treatments and preventative care, while far too many worry that a major health event will bankrupt them. According to the American Journal of Health, about 2/3 of bankruptcies are tied to medical expenses. “We are breaking this unacceptable cycle by giving Americans the means to pay for healthcare so they and their families can live healthier and happier lives,” says SmartHealth PayCard co-founder Paul Clampitt.
In the coming months, SmartHealth PayCard will introduce exciting new features as it expands its role as a financial cure for healthcare.
