DALLAS & NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartHealth PayCard, LLC,™ a healthcare FinTech pioneer committed to eliminating the financial burden of medical expenses so Americans can get care whenever they need it, announces a partnership with In & Out Urgent Care, a leader in the delivery of Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine services in the greater New Orleans area.
The SmartHealth PayCard™ Mastercard®, a national credit card dedicated solely to healthcare expenses, will be introduced at In & Out Urgent Care clinics in New Orleans, Metairie and Covington/Madisonville, making it easier for patients to manage their health with affordable payment options.
Medical expenses cause millions of Americans to skip care. According to the Commonwealth Fund and the American Journal of Public Health, 41 percent of working-age people have medical bill problems, while 2/3 of bankruptcies are tied to medical issues. SmartHealth PayCard reverses this unacceptable cycle by providing
In & Out Urgent Care patients with a revolving credit line and benefits, including a prescription program with savings up to 75% at pharmacies nationwide, up to $5,000 Accidental Medical Expense coverage, and $5,000 Accidental Death Insurance.
SmartHealth PayCard co-founders, Jeff Blankinship and Paul Clampitt, want people to focus on their health, not how to pay for it. “The SmartHealth PayCard is designed to ease out-of-pocket costs,” says Blankinship. “It gives Americans the means to pay for health needs while getting healthcare providers paid at time of service, so they can focus on providing exceptional care.”
In & Out Urgent Care CEO, David Guzan, welcomes the partnership with SmartHealth PayCard because it provides a solution for rising deductibles and co-pays, and helps the underinsured patient. “SmartHealth PayCard will allow us to offer our personable, affordable and convenient care to more patients, even those who cancel their visits at registration due to financial responsibilities at time of service,” says Guzan. “While it’s far less expensive to visit our clinics than to go to an emergency room, SmartHealth PayCard’s exceptional benefits and revolving credit line make it even easier to access needed care while allowing patients to manage healthcare expenses.”
