Paytient is a free-to-use benefit provided by your employer that gives you a healthier way to pay for your care.

Here’s how to get the most out of this benefit:

What would you do if faced with an unexpected $400 medical bill? If you’re like many Americans, you may not have this cash just sitting around -- so you’d likely put it on a credit card and hope to pay it off as quickly as possible. For every month you aren’t able to pay it off, you’d pay more and more in interest -- making a big bill even bigger.

Even with health insurance, many people struggle to afford their out-of-pocket medical, dental, vision, and veterinary expenses. They’re left having to choose between deferring or postponing their care, or using a high-interest credit card or loan that costs far more in the long run. Paytient gives you a healthier option.

Paytient is a free-to-use benefit provided by your employer. Here’s how it works: When you join, you’ll receive a Paytient Visa Debit Card loaded with the total amount of your deductible. You can use this card to pay for your (or your family’s) medical, dental, vision, or veterinary care in full at the time of service. Then, you can choose how you’d like to pay your balance off over time -- interest-free for a full year. And it’s free for you to use, thanks to your employer.

With Paytient, you don’t have to choose between getting the care you need or maintaining your financial health or stability. Here’s how you can use Paytient to maintain your family’s physical and financial health.

How to Use Paytient

You can use Paytient anywhere that Visa is accepted: Online or in person, wherever you choose to receive your care. You can also add a virtual Paytient card to your digital wallet. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

1) SWIPE - Use your Paytient card just as you would any other debit or credit card at the time of service.

2) CLICK - When you swipe your card, a notification will appear on your smartphone to open the Paytient app. It's there to let you know you have a payment plan that is ready to be set!

3) SPLIT - Choose the payment plan that works best for your budget! No interest. No fees. No, really!

Paytient gives you the flexibility to pay off your bills in a way that works for your budget. You can turn a $400 bill into 5 payments of $80, or 12 payments of $33.33. Or you can let us decide - if you don’t select an option, Paytient will automatically set your payments to be split into four months 24 hours after a transaction has been made.

Use Paytient at a Healthcare Provider

Usually, when you go to the doctor, you’ll be responsible for a portion of your visit (your co-pay) on the day of the appointment. Then you might also get a bill later in the mail.

You can use your Paytient card for every part of your visit: In person to cover your co-pay, online or over the phone for your remaining balance, and at the pharmacy to pay for any prescriptions your doctor may prescribe. This includes chronic disease management, medical specialists, acute care, and annual exams.

Use Paytient at the Pharmacy

In addition to prescriptions, there are many other care items you can purchase at a pharmacy: Reading glasses to help with minor vision problems, skincare products to soothe skin conditions, cough syrup and cough drops for when you catch a cold, etc. You can use your Paytient card to pay for any of these care-related purchases at the pharmacy.

Use Paytient at the Optometrist

Need glasses or other corrective vision care? You can use Paytient to cover your vision care purchases, including glasses, contacts, eye exams, and other eye care products.

Use Paytient at the Dentist

Whether it’s a routine cleaning or check-up, or more specialized dental care, you can use your Paytient card to cover the costs. Use Paytient at the time of your treatment and pay it off over time.

Use Paytient at the Physical Therapist or Chiropractor

Physical therapy can be an important part of recovery after injury or surgery, or as a preventative measure. But visiting the physical therapist once or twice a week, as recommended for best results, can get expensive quickly! Use Paytient to pay for your visits over time so you can focus on getting the care you need.

Use Paytient at the Dermatologist

Whether you’re seeing a dermatologist for medical or more cosmetic reasons, you can use your Paytient card to cover the costs.

Use Paytient at the Veterinarian**

Yes, you can even use Paytient to cover veterinary costs!

Many pet parents struggle with the decision of whether or not to pay for veterinary insurance, on top of the health insurance they pay for for their (human) family members. They don’t want to add to their existing list of monthly bills, but they also don’t want to be forced to make difficult decisions about their pets due to financial reasons (such as, if they cannot afford an emergency surgery or vet visit).

Paytient can help to reduce the financial stress of Fido’s care, whether or not you choose to get pet insurance. Paytient can be used for anything related to your pet’s care, including annual checkups, prescriptions, emergency visits, specialized care, and more. Just swipe your Paytient card when you’re ready to pay, and then select a payment plan that works for your budget.

Get the Care You Need Now. Pay Later.

Even with health insurance, the out-of-pocket costs for paying for your family’s care can be expensive. Many people are forced to choose between deferring or postponing their care, or going into debt to pay for it.

Paytient gives you the flexibility to get the care you need now, and pay for it over time. It’s free for you to use, and you can use it anywhere you receive care -- medical, vision, dental, and even veterinary care. You can even use Paytient to pay for care you’ve already received.
