Mrs. WALORSKI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge Beacon Health
System in my district for their collaboration with CarePayment.
Beacon Health System continues to look for new, innovative ways to care for their patients.
They have partnered with CarePayment to provide a financing service that allows patients to spread out the payment of medical bills.
Oftentimes, patients face sticker shock when they discover what their out-of-pocket medical expenses will ultimately cost.
Some plans with high-deductibles force patients to pay $6,000 for an individual plan, or $12,000 for a family plan before their health insurance kicks in to cover medical bills.
In order to provide more financial relief to patients in my district, Beacon Health and CarePayment are now providing a patient-friendly, financing program.
Everyone is eligible, regardless of income or employment status, and participating in this program has no impact on the patient's credit score.
The constituents I serve are concerned with rising medical costs.
In fact, many of them face difficult decisions when it comes to prioritizing their healthcare.
I am grateful for partnerships like the one between Beacon Health and CarePayment for providing patient driven solutions to Hoosiers.
I will keep working on bipartisan reforms to move in this direction.
