Our Mission
Help people better access and afford care.

Our Thesis
Most care in the future will be cash purchased or financed versus insured. While this sounds massively disruptive it is not without precedent.

We believe this societal shift is actually a good thing and will rhyme with its historic analogue of how retirement savings shifted from being an employer-paid, defined benefit (pension) to an employee-oriented, defined contribution (401k) model.  This societal shift liberated employers from expensive, unmanageable costs totally unrelated to their core business and catalyzed a Cambrian explosion of innovation relating to retirement and financial services.

We see the same shift slowly underway in healthcare, as evidenced by higher deductibles, and we are positioning Paytient to be the enabling financial platform upon which the effortless buying and selling of sub-catastrophic care will be built and transacted.

Our Business
Offered by employers and insurers, Paytient is embedded or put alongside health plans to give ‘paytients’ the ability to pay for unexpected, out-of-pocket expenses over time – always without interest or fees. We are wedging into the world by putting Paytient into the purses and wallets of millions of people and helping better access and afford care.

With headquartered roots in Columbia, Missouri, we are a founder-led, privately held company funded by Inspired Capital, Box Group, Felicis Ventures, Lachy Groom, Lightbank, and Cultivation Capital.

We could talk all day about being “mission-driven”, but we’ll let some of our customers describe why the work we’re doing is so impactful:

“This was a complete lifesaver for me and was provided when I needed it most. Super easy and great payment plan choices”
– Dana

“I had some out of pocket expenses for a surgery I wasn’t expecting, and not sure how I was going to pay it upfront. But the app was simple and the digital card was immediately available for use. Saved me in so many ways!”
– April

“In an economic time when medical bills can be an added burden to an already stretched budget, Paytient has made things so much easier on our family.”
– Stephen
