Video Transcript

I am Mike Sobek, CEO and founder of medZERO of Kansas City, Missouri. medZERO is a form of payment for people to pay their healthcare bills. What we had found is that deductibles have risen from $250 to $1,000 to $5,000 today for a family, and when they go to the hospital or to the dentist or even a pharmacy they are unable to pay their $1,000 deductible.

We provide a simple means for them to issue a Mastercard, complete the payment and then over the next six or 12 months out of payroll or through an HSA contribution they pay off over time at 0% interest.
