Americans are carrying more medical debt than ever before. According to a recent study, medical debt has increased to $140 billion nationwide. This has created a tremendous financial burden for both patients and providers who are working together to address a cancer diagnosis, overcome an addiction, or treat a medical emergency.

As the first carefunding platform that provides patients and their CareChampions with a dedicated way to raise funds for healthcare-related expenses, CaringWays has also developed unique partnerships with providers and care organizations to support the financial burden of their patients. To date, CaringWays has partnered with more than 400 providers across 38 states.

Here are a few unique ways CaringWays helps providers and care organizations support their patients:

CaringWays helps pay medical bills directly to care organizations and providers.

One factor that makes CaringWays unique is our ability to work directly with providers to help patients pay for medical bills. As a patient receives funds in their secure CaringWays account, they can then pay for medical bills with a CareCard, which is similar to a Health Savings Account. CaringWays partners with patients to set up direct payments to providers and recovery centers.

CaringWays gives providers and organizations a way to support a patient’s overall well-being.

A patient’s health and wellness is the top priority for care providers and organizations. CaringWays provides a way to make that approach even more comprehensive by offering patients a way to address any financial issues related to treatment. By sharing the CaringWays platform, providers can alleviate the stressors that can come with illness, showing patients that they are truly a partner in their journey.

CaringWays equips providers and organizations with resources to inform patients about care funding possibilities.

Providers and care organizations are busy taking care of patients’ physical and mental health. That’s why CaringWays makes it as easy as possible for providers to share information about the CaringWays platform as a solution for relieving financial burdens during recovery. We have a library of resources and can provide a unique CareCode you can share with patients who are interested in setting up a campaign.

By partnering with both patients and providers, CaringWays gives care organizations a way to provide truly comprehensive support. Hospitals, addiction recovery centers, and cancer treatment centers take great care of patients. CaringWays is just one more tool for providers to be able to support recovery and show patients you are walking this journey with them.
