We know that adjusting to this "new normal" way of living and of seeing patients may take a little time, but getting paid is something that cannot wait - so to help you keep your cashflow business as usual, we launched a new feature that enables you to get paid fast in times of coronavirus: the Payment Link.
In case you missed it, the new Payment Link feature was released last week with a list of new features to support telehealth and more.
Add a payment link to invoices and get paid fast
The Payment Link is a link you can add to your invoice email, so patients can click on the link and securely pay the invoice online straight away.
Everything is done for you when the invoice email is sent, and there's no need to chase payment after online consultations - saving you and your patients time and hassle.
Help patients receive rebates faster
The same way you need to get paid fast, your patients also need to receive their rebates quickly as well. So we made it even easier for you to process rebates via Halaxy: you can now request your patient's deposit bank account details using the patient intake form.
This means that patients can complete their bank details and the details are saved automatically in their patient profile, rather than you having to type it out yourself.
With your patients' bank account details securely saved in Halaxy, you can process their rebates with the click of a button and they receive their rebates overnight.

Processing payments and rebates for telehealth
There has never been a better time and an easier way to process payments and rebates online via Halaxy.

Processing payments and rebates via Halaxy help you save time and it means patients can get on with their day straight after online, phone and face-to-face consultations - so as you can see, these features can streamline your practice's clinical billing now and all year round.
Auto Payments - Payment Link
Get paid faster. Send a payment link to patients
When you email an invoice, Halaxy now allows you to include a secure link that patients can click to pay the invoice online.
You can include this link in any invoice you email by clicking Dynamic Terms and selecting "Payment Link".
This is a great way to get paid remotely without handling card details over the phone, for example. You can also request the patient's credit or debit card details via an intake form and store it securely in Halaxy.

How much does it cost to process payments?
With Halaxy Auto Payments there are no terminal costs, you only pay for what you process and there are no lock-in contracts or fees, and you always pay the same rate regardless of the card type.
Your rate is calculated based on the volume of transactions your practice processes in a 90-day period, so you can secure even lower rates by processing more transactions.
