Apollo Endosurgery Announces Partnership With American HealthCare Lending 

Apollo Endosurgery, announces partnership with American Healthcare Lending to offer affordable weight loss surgery financing.   The partnership will increase patient access to the LAP-BAND® System.

The Apollo Endosurgery and American Healthcare Lending partnership was designed to offer a financing service that is beneficial to both physicians and patients. American Healthcare Lending assists thousands of individuals every year seeking to obtain a higher quality of life through bariatric surgeries. In partnership with Apollo Endosurgery, American Healthcare Lending is now offering patients low monthly payment plans to cover the cost of LAP-BAND® System procedures and aftercare, including deductibles, self-pays, and co-pays. Patients can be pre-qualified for a loan in two minutes or less by visiting www.lapband.com or www.americanhealthcarelending.com/lapbandloan/

In addition to patients gaining access to this finance platform throughwww.lapband.com, physicians can enroll in a customized LAP-BAND® System financing program directly with American Healthcare Lending. Physicians who are enrolled in the LAP-BAND® financing program benefit by having only one low annual fee and paying no fees per funded loan, rather than paying a merchant fee of up to 15% per loan, which is standard with other financing programs. This new financing program from American Healthcare Lending and Apollo Endosurgery could save LAP-BAND® System physicians and providers tens of thousands of dollars every year.
