By leveraging its virtual card technology, Mastercard aims to expedite payments, providing a swift and secure financial ecosystem for healthcare providers and insurers.

Mastercard's Healthcare Vision Unveiled

In a strategic collaboration with Remedinet, a cloud-based healthtech platform, card giant Mastercard's B2B healthcare payment solution is making its debut in India. The goal is clear: to simplify cashless claims and foster seamless transactions between hospitals, health insurers, and third-party administrators.

How Does It Work?

Mastercard's end-to-end payments solution is crafted around virtual card technology. By embedding virtual cards within healthtech platforms, like Remedinet, through API connectivity , Mastercard ensures that B2B payments become both faster and more secure.

Remedinet gains instant access to virtually generated cards issued by their bank the moment they submit a medical claim to an insurance company. This move significantly accelerates the payout process for hospitals, transforming a historically lengthy waiting period into almost immediate compensation.

For insurers, the introduction of Mastercard's virtual cards means enhanced transparency. Transaction-level data accompanies claim settlement information, facilitating streamlined processes and automated reconciliation.

“We’re on a mission to integrate our technology into platform providers to drive seamless B2B payment experiences at greater scale. As we assessed industries where we can contribute with impact, healthcare emerged as a critical industry to unlock payment efficiencies,” said Chad Wallace, Global Head of Commercial Solutions at Mastercard.

Addressing B2B Healthcare Challenges

Mastercard's foray into solving B2B healthcare payments is designed to align fintech and healthtech to tackle inefficiencies. Particularly in emerging markets like India, legacy systems in use by insurers contribute to bottlenecks, resulting in payment delays and increased borrowing costs for healthcare providers.

Manual claims processes and reconciliation add to the challenge, creating uncertainty for healthcare providers and straining billing teams. Healthtech startups, despite being instrumental in driving efficiencies, often lack the resources needed to independently address these issues, according to the company.

The Power of Partnerships

Through partnerships with industry leaders like Mastercard, healthtech enablers can bridge the gap, accessing the necessary solutions to improve connectivity between healthcare parties and revolutionize the payments process.

The partnership with Remedinet represents yet another global collaboration for Mastercard.
