Asserta Health Partners With Dwolla to Offer A Better Way to Pay For Healthcare

Asserta Health has announced a partnership with Dwolla, Inc., a payments platform, to allow Asserta Health users to use ACH transactions to send and receive funds more efficiently. With Asserta Health’s medEcash? Payment Platform, consumers can pay the full transparent cash price for healthcare services at or before the time of service, even when all or a portion of the funds come directly from their employer or health plan. Employers, health plans and consumers benefit from simplified, transparent transactions that take providers out of the billing business and allow them to focus on improving the cost, quality and efficiency of the care itself.

Asserta Health was founded in 2014. Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder Lisa Behnke says it needed a partner that was up to the challenge of disrupting more than 50 years of third-party claims and billing processes in the healthcare industry.

“We love working with Dwolla because they can work at our speed,” Behnke says. “They give us fast, reliable, low cost ACH transactions that shorten the time it takes our clients to make funds available for immediate cash payment. Our clients can take advantage of cash prices to lower healthcare costs and give their employees and plan members a dramatically better consumer experience. Our partnership with Dwolla makes it possible for us to significantly lower processing costs and improve the healthcare payment experience.”

Dwolla is a financial technology company offering businesses an onramp to the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network, the electronic network of financial institutions that moves more than 43 trillion dollars annually.

By integrating Dwolla’s API, Asserta Health will be connected to the ACH Network—via Dwolla—making it possible for both Asserta and its users to send and receive funds through its payments platform.
