Leader in US Health Payments Market Since 1995 Targets Burgeoning German Demand for Healthcard Systems and Expertise

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VeriFone Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PAY) today announced a new initiative designed to meet growing demand in Germany for electronic health card systems. As the leader of payment and value-added applications in the US market since 1995, VeriFone brings a broad product portfolio and years of experience to meet the needs of healthcare organizations striving to meet Germany's eHealth goals.

Led by Gematik, a management organization comprised by leading German health organizations, the system combines insurance eligibility, electronic prescriptions and electronic medical records on a consumer smart card.

"Germany is in the forefront of the movement to a eHealth system and VeriFone has years of expertise in providing medical card applications in the U.S.," said VeriFone Chief Executive Officer Douglas G. Bergeron. "We have worked with health providers, insurance companies and applications developers to provide electronic solutions to the resolve health records and reimbursement issues. This expertise is uniquely suited to the emerging needs of Germany's healthcare industry."

VeriFone currently offers a range of payment certified electronic card acceptance solutions in Germany, including the V x 570, V x 670 and Secura PIN device, as well as many communications options, including Ethernet, ISDN, GPRS and WiFi. In the coming quarter, the company will be introducing new product sets into the German market and specific eHealth applications.

In the US, VeriFone systems are used in a wide variety of applications, including New York and California Medicaid programs, Kaiser Permanente's co-payments acceptance, and Secure EDI's health claims management systems.

VeriFone's multi-application system and software solutions are HIPAA compliant and are specifically designed to meet the needs of medical providers, health plans, hospitals, schools, public health agencies and other organizations in the healthcare industry.
