CareCredit, OxyGo Strike Financing Partnership

Entry into HME market by established healthcare credit card company should expand oxygen patients’ equipment, therapy options.

CareCredit, a provider of healthcare credit services, has entered the HME marketplace via a multi-year agreement to help finance patient purchase of Applied Home Healthcare Equipment Inc.’s OxyGo line of portable oxygen concentrators.

Portable oxygen devices have become an important retail sales opportunity for some respiratory providers who are discovering some patients will pay cash for POCs and other portable devices. The deal will see CareCredit provide financing options to patients visiting the nearly 20,000 providers of OxyGo devices. While new to the DME world, CareCredit has been financing healthcare purchases for 30 years and serves millions of clients annually.

"Entering this new market with a well-regarded partner aligns perfectly with our goal of helping people pay for the care they need when they need it," said Greg Pierce, senior vice president and general manager for CareCredit. "Our agreement with OxyGo gives their providers a way to help people finance the equipment they need — with convenient, monthly payments — so they can maintain or regain their independence."

In general, having access to financing services will factor heavily in family healthcare decision-making. A study conducted by CareCredit showed 72 percent of people surveyed reported that a healthcare credit card lets them better prepare for their family's needs, as opposed to delaying care.

"This new partnership will help patients live more independent and healthier lives," said Dave Marquard, CEO & Founder of OxyGo. "Having the freedom to be on the go while you're on oxygen can make a big difference. Now more patients will be able to get an OxyGo and/or OxyGo FIT portable oxygen concentrator, giving them greater independence when they need it."

He gave me antibiotics and told me that if the swelling was not better to come back in two weeks. I went back in two weeks and he said he did not know what was wrong. Since I do not have insurance, I went to a hospital emergency room, and they said I have COPD.The disease does not improve. My "good days" are far and few these days. My dad and his dad died from this. I am only writing this to inform others that nothing was really working to help my condition.I started on COPD herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic,i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the COPD natural herbal formula. i am now doing very well, my lungs are totally repaired!!

I was not really having a problem breathing at first. My throat was burning; I thought I had strep throat. I had pain in my neck, and there was swelling around my collar bone. The first doctor I went to said he did not know why there was swelling. He gave me antibiotics and told me that if the swelling was not better to come back in two weeks. I went back in two weeks and he said he did not know what was wrong. Since I do not have insurance, I went to a hospital emergency room, and they said I have COPD.The disease does not improve. My "good days" are far and few these days. My dad and his dad died from this.
