How is Healthcare Finance Direct (HFD) different from other patient financing companies?
Most patient finance lenders focus on approving patients in the “prime” credit category, which is traditionally above a 660 credit score. This means that healthcare practices are left with no affordable options for a sub-prime or no credit patient, even though they spent money to get them in the door.
We’re a fintech platform that brings patients, providers and capital partners together and facilitates mutually beneficial finance offerings for 100% of patients. No more sunk costs with declined-for-financing patients.
Do I get paid up-front?
HFD offers non-recourse (paid up-front) and recourse (paid as we collect) solutions.
For our non-recourse option, HFD’s capital markets team is the providers advocate when it works with its P/E partners to price the merchant discount rate. Our 10 year performance data allows HFD to bargain for the best rates possible for the provider.
Do I have credit risk on patient receivables using the HFD platform?
If the provider chooses our recourse (paid as we collect) solution, the provider does retain the credit risk. HFD works with the provider to mitigate all risk through appropriate down payments, interest rates, and term lengths.
Is HFD a lender?
No, HFD is not a lender. HFD is a technology platform that allows the provider to originate retail installment contracts between themselves and the consumer. HFD then assists in the sale of those contracts with its P/E partners and services through maturity…..no lenders necessary.
All terms of pricing to the consumer and to the provider are agreed upon ahead of time. In essence, HFD is the healthcare provider’s outsourced capital markets team.
