Allentown PA. June 1, 2022: AblePay Health (AblePay) announced a strategic partnership with the Healthcare Council of Western Pennsylvania (HCWPA) to bring the AblePay model to its members.

HCWPA is a nonprofit regional trade association representing acute and non-acute facilities, organizations serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and specialty healthcare providers, in 30 counties in western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia.

“We are excited to partner with the Healthcare Council of Western Pennsylvania,” said John Fistner, Founder and CEO. “Our platform accelerates revenues and removes the costs associated with collecting out-of-pocket payments for medical providers while completely changing the patient experience.

We were intrigued by AblePay’s unique business model that allows medical providers to decrease costs and dramatically increase revenues while assisting their patients in diffusing rising out-of-pocket medical expenses.
