Creation of a New Product with our 10 Health Care SEGs in Mind

MyCare +LoanFFCU’s MyCare Loan is the perfect example of a product we developed to benefit a group of our SEGs and improve the financial well-being of everyone who participates. The MyCare loan provides a low rate, flexible financing option for medical procedures that are not covered, or completely covered, by insurance. When this product is made available through the healthcare provider, their patients are appreciative because they now have financing to cover a procedure they would otherwise not be able to fund that also has extremely favorable terms. The healthcare provider is able to receive guaranteed, timely payments from an institution that will not charge them to offer financing. Just like this opportunity, FFCU is continually looking for new ways to provide customized products and services to suit your needs. Talk to us today about the unique financial needs of your business.
