Why

Epic River

A provider & patient payment solution where everyone wins

Our Solution

Epic River turns the traditional lending model on its head for healthcare providers, patients and financial institutions alike. Unlike typical loans where lenders benefit from high interest rates and borrower penalties, the Epic River model is designed to benefit all parties when a patient successfully pays off their medical bills, rather than the other way around. Epic River partners with trusted local banks and credit unions to fund fair, affordable patient medical loans. 

All loans are:

  • 100% approved—regardless of a patient’s credit history
  • Flexible—patients choose their monthly payment amount and loan duration
  • Guaranteed by participating healthcare providers
