Tuesday, July 18, 2017

COSTA MESA, Calif. – CareCredit will provide financing options for the oxygen patients of nearly 20,000 providers across the country under a new, multi-year agreement with OxyGo. This marks CareCredit’s first foray into the HME industry. “Entering this new market with a well-regarded partner aligns perfectly with our goal of helping people pay for the care they need when they need it,” said Greg Pierce, senior vice president and general manager of CareCredit. “Our agreement with OxyGo gives their providers a way to help people finance the equipment they need—with convenient, monthly payments.” CareCredit is a health, wellness and personal care credit card accepted through a national network of more than 200,000 healthcare provider locations and select health-focused retailers. The agreement will increase access to the OxyGo family of portable oxygen concentrators, says Dave Marquard, CEO and founder of the company, which is part of Cleveland-based Applied Home Healthcare Equipment. “This new partnership will help patients live more independent and healthier lives,” he said. “Having the freedom to be on the go while you’re on oxygen can make a big difference. Now more patients will be able to get an OxyGo and/or OxyGo FIT portable oxygen concentrator, giving them greater independence.”
