Sept. 10, 2012

APEX, a St. Paul, Minn.-based billing provider focused on the healthcare industry, has partnered with iStream Financial Services for online payment processing. APEX, which offers healthcare providers a branded portal that enables them to deliver bills and statements electronically and accept online payments, said the partnership allows the company to focus on the process of posting bills while iStream takes care of the back-end processing.

“In the healthcare industry, the fraction of self-pay patients continues to increase for most providers, making the need for efficient payment processing more important than ever,” said APEX CEO Brian Kueppers . “Healthcare providers can lower billing-related costs by encouraging patients to make payments online and simplifying payment processing through high-tech solutions.”
