Parasail Health Unveils New Financial Product That Will Increase Hospital Patient Collections

Parasail Health has unveiled a new financial product that will increase hospital patient collections by 2x to 4x while reducing administrative costs and patient AR days. The new product, called Parasail ProPatient, gives patients 0% interest financing for out of pocket medical costs with monthly payments spread out over years if needed to make payments affordable. Hospitals and large practice groups that offer ProPatient Plans receive payment immediately from Parasail without recourse. Parasail services the payment plans for the entire repayment period, and patient interest rates remain at 0% for the entire term. With health care costs rising faster than inflation, wage growth and GDP, consumers are paying more, in the form of high-deductible health plans. Now over 1/3 of employer-provided plans have high deductibles while 52% of Americans say they can't afford an unexpected expense of just $400. With no price transparency, confusing insurance plans and arcane billing practices, consumers are often unaware of their financial exposure. Medical costs have now become the number one concern of Americans and the leading cause of personal bankruptcy. All of which has led to ballooning bad debt for providers; hospitals collect only about 15% of what they bill patients. With patients now health care's third large payer, providers and patients need simple and fair payment solutions quickly. In a Parasail ProPatient Plan, each patient's monthly payment is based on that person's ability to pay, as determined by Parasail's proprietary financial models. Using Parasail, hospitals can rapidly increase payments for outstanding balances over $1000, which make up the majority of traditionally uncollectible debt. Parasail ProPatient Plans, which are funded directly by Parasail using private equity capital, are the first financial product aside from health insurance itself created from within the health care industry rather than imported from retail or banking. Parasail's proprietary data models create unique profiles for each patient that result in payment plans specifically tailored to what each patient can afford to pay monthly. It is the first product to model payment plans based on patient affordability rather than criteria set top-down by hospital administrators. ProPatient plans have been tested with two hospital groups and specialty practices and Parasail is beginning to roll the product out more broadly. Parasail is inviting other hospitals to test their own AR data in the Parasail model for free to see how offering ProPatient Plans would impact their collections rates.
