Midland Memorial Hospital Introduces CarePayment Program

MIDLAND, Tex. – April 4, 2012 – Taking another significant step to improve the patient care experience, Midland Memorial Hospital just began offering CarePayment, an innovative patient loyalty and payment program, to help its patients cover out-of-pocket medical expenses.

By offering CarePayment, the 62-year-old non-profit hospital serving Midland County’s 140,000 residents will provide its patients more flexibility in covering medical expenses through a hospital-branded relationship card that makes it easy for patients to pay unexpected out-of-pocket expenses such as co-pays and deductibles over time.

The CarePayment loyalty and payment card will be available to anyone receiving care at Midland Memorial Hospital. Patients can make low minimum monthly payments over 25 months with 0% APR. Those who are current on their payments can re-use the card for future medical expenses.

“Midland is an excellent hospital system and a perfect fit for CarePayment,” said Joe Siedel, CarePayment general manager. “From our experience working with leading hospitals around the country, we are confident this program will improve the overall patient experience while addressing a sensitive financial challenge for hospitals.”
