MILWAUKEE, Feb. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Health Payment Systems, Inc. (HPS, the "Company"), an innovator in the healthcare payments space, is pleased to report record new enrollment coupled with outstanding customer retention for the year ending 2021. The Expansion of their SuperEOB to national solution PayMedix, which reduces the complexity of healthcare billing and payment processes by consolidating patient financial responsibility, ensures that HPS will continue to grow and operate one of the most competitive PPOs in the state of Wisconsin as well as a leader in the financial technology space.
HPS’ accelerating momentum is fueled by a perfect storm of challenges for HR and self-funded insurers related to the ongoing pandemic and an evolving healthcare landscape. Pandemic-related healthcare processes, staffing issues and complicated treatment plans have highlighted the need to simplify understanding and billing in healthcare payments.
"I would like to express my gratitude to our family here at HPS and our extended family of employers, providers, benefits consultants, and third-party adjudicators in the Wisconsin market for the roles played in making our growth in 2021 a reality," says Terry Rowinski, president of HPS. "To have significant double-digit growth year over year shows our combined perseverance and grit to continue to push for unique and valued solutions in the self-funded employee benefits space using our broad high-value PPO network combined with our industry leading PayMedix consumer solutions."
With the creation of PayMedix, providers can now join a network that integrates with many different insurance and HMO networks. For the first time in HPS’ history, providers, employers and members can benefit from our financing tool outside of the HPS PPO network.
