Healthcare loan opportunities for local financial institutions that “Do No Harm” to patients

Overview

For community banks and credit unions maintaining relevance in today’s highly competitive, global financial market is becoming increasingly more difficult. That’s where Epic River comes in. We offer local financial institutions a lucrative, no-risk revenue stream via interest bearing healthcare loans for patients in need. As an Epic River partner you get to….

  • Help providers stay in business and focus on care rather than billing and payment
  • Assist community members in financial distress because of mounting medical bills
  • Generate fixed loan income for your bank or credit union without harming a patient’s financial well-being

How it Works

Financial institutions join the Epic River network and agree to the terms including guaranteed patient financing with a fixed APR.

Epic River and its partner banks and credit unions generate leads and pursue new loan opportunities.

Patients pick the amount they can afford to pay each month with loan terms up to five years.

The bank bills the patient monthly for the payment.

Patients make their monthly payments using any payment option accepted by the bank or credit union to make the monthly payment. That could include auto-pay, HSA, cash or check.

All loans are guaranteed by the healthcare provider.

—Melissa Grovijohn, Cash Management, Pinnacle Bank

We began to identify a significant need for medical financing within our community but found it difficult to create and service the relatively smaller loans while justifying the manual process that consumed a large portion of our overhead costs. Epic River is just what we needed.
