What factors into health equity.

When healthcare is truly equitable, every person can get the care they need — when they need it. Unfortunately, that’s not usually the case.

Health inequities stem from disparities in social determinants of health (SDOH), which are varying conditions in where people work and live that affect their health risks and, ultimately, their medical outcomes.

This includes considerations like:

  • Social support networks
  • Health literacy
  • Proximity to healthcare providers
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Access to transportation
  • Income level
  • Internet access

These factors impact each person’s ability to access and afford care and can leave them sicker physically and mentally. By being cognizant of SDOH and promoting health equity across their teams, employers can encourage workers to bring their best selves to the office.

why paytient?

Address diverse care needs.

Your team members have diverse healthcare priorities, including everything from mental health to physical therapy to infertility to glasses or braces.

Many employees are caring for partners, children, parents, and pets in addition to themselves. Since Paytient is accepted by most providers that take Visa cards,* it's one benefit that unlocks access to a wide spectrum of care needs.

Paytient makes your health benefits more equitable by affording all employees access to credit, without a credit check, so they can get the care they need and pay their out-of-pocket costs over time — with no interest or fees.

how it works

Paytient helps with access and affordability.

With a Paytient Health Payment Account, employees can pay for care for their whole family — including pets. After each transaction, they choose an interest-free payment plan that fits their budget.

  • On-demand line of credit with a limit set by the employer.
  • Pays for medical, dental, vision, pharmacy, and/or vet care.
  • No credit check promotes equitable access.
  • Providers are paid in full.
  • Employers are not on the hook for unpaid balances.

Paytient makes out-of-pocket costs more manageable for employees. This empowers everyone to get care sooner, ensuring benefits are more equitable.

“Went to the doctor for a medication check-up and ended up getting labs. What I thought would be a free visit ended up being $220, so I thought I’d try my new Paytient card. It worked like a charm and was nice to feel like I’m in control and have options — on my terms. Thank you, Paytient!”

– Scott

"Paytient was a blessing to me. I had been without my glasses for five months because they are expensive, and then I remembered I had that card. It covered the cost of my glasses at a time when money is tight."

– Carla
