Medical billing is broken said, Everyone! We are in a vicious cycle. Patients cannot afford their out-of-pocket medical bills even with insurance. Providers are hurting financially due to the shift in payment responsibility to patients.

We believe American patients should be able to pay their out-of-pocket medical bills over time with convenience and transparency. While Medical Providers should be able to focus on providing healthcare services rather than financial services.

Headquartered in San Francisco, PayZen is a mission-driven fintech company that aims to tackle the growing patient payment responsibility problem with superior technology and a modern approach. PayZen is backed by leading equity and credit capital investors and is led by proven technology veterans with a successful track record of helping millions of Americans overcome financial struggles.
