Our Mission

Our Mission is to make financial assistance easy and accessible at every non-profit hospital in America.

60% of patients claim they have avoided or delayed medical care because they simply cannot afford it.
But when financial assistance programs work right – it not only helps address the issue of medical debt, but also creates healthier communities – even creating an uptick in doctor visits and prescription refills from patients who received financial assistance.
