American Oncology Network, LLC (AON), an alliance of physicians and healthcare leaders working together to ensure the long-term success of community oncology, announced a partnership with CarePayment, a company specializing in enabling patients to pay for their healthcare with a 0.00% APR solution. Working with CarePayment, AON will help to improve both revenue and patient satisfaction within its 22 community oncology partner practices across 17 states.
CarePayment partners with providers and organizations like AON to offer patients a 0.00% APR financing long-term solution. Patients are treated with respect, provided with convenient ways to pay (by text, mail, phone, or secure portal) and have access to CarePayment's compassionate customer care center 24/7. Providers collect the cash they need to stay financially healthy with CarePayment's performance guarantee, allowing them to continue their work within the community.
"AON is doing valuable work with their network of physicians and health leaders. They wanted to do more to ease the financial burden on both providers and patients," said Ed Caldwell, CarePayment Chief Executive Officer. "CarePayment is a truly comprehensive, interest-free solution that drives more engagement, more satisfaction and more cash to our partners than any other solution. We're proud to work with such a respected organization to help patients afford the care they need and help providers remain profitable."
CarePayment can be found in more than 2,000 provider locations throughout the country, serving over 6.1 million patients.
"We are committed to enriching the patient experience and helping community oncology practices thrive," said AON Chief Executive Officer Todd Schonherz. "Patients often face financial challenges following a cancer diagnosis. This relationship helps patients avoid the potential for financial toxicity and ensures they are not endangering their health by delaying care, skipping treatments or failing to refill their prescriptions."
