Medical Equipment Financing
For patients needing or wanting medical or mobility equipment, especially when not covered by insurance or for an elective reason, the cost can be challenging. UCFS' goal is to help every patient obtain the equipment they want and need. That's why fixed-term loans (closed-end financing) are a terrific payment option for medical and mobility equipment/devices.
It happens every day, a patient needs a scooter or lift chair, or insurance paid for a device and now the newer model would be better for the patient. Financing out-of-pocket or non-covered insurance procedures can be the difference to obtaining the right equipment for a better life.
How it Works
- Medical equipment retailers or call centers register with UCFS to be a business that offers consumer financing (no registration fee)
- When a patient wants help paying for equipment, the business creates
a credit application – either online or on paper and called in to UCFS
- Within minutes, the business can inform the customer of credit app approval and the sale can be completed immediately.
- The medical equipment company is paid within several days
- Patient begins repayment of financed amount.
- POCs / Portable Oxygen
- Lift Chairs
- Motorized Scooters
- Power Chairs
- Sleep Aid Machines:
CPAP and APAP devices
- Hospital Beds
To help providers in this changing market, and to allow patients access to the best medical and mobility equipment, financing is the ideal method of payment for both patients and businesses. Financing is especially helpful for people depending on available cash and credit cards to manage day-to-day expenses. By adding a low, monthly, fixed amount, purchases are possible for more patients.
- Patient approval in minutes
- A high percentage of approved patients
- Finance amounts of $1,000 to $10,000
