JazzCash moves to digitize medical payments
Pakistan’s fastest growing mobile financial service provider, JazzCash, has collaborated with Medicount, a leading financial and advisory services provider in the area of consumer health management to launch Healthpass, according to a release. This industry-first product allows customers to get discounts of up to 20% on healthcare expenses by paying through JazzCash Quick Response (QR).
This special feature of the application frees up the consumers from the need to have physical cash readily available in their wallets. Moreover, using JazzCash guarantees them a lower cost. The medical bill is automatically deducted from JazzCash users’ mobile wallets once they scan the QR code.
For now, Healthpass is available at all branches of the renowned Islamabad Diagnostic Center and will soon be expanded to multiple cities through hundreds of health providers such as hospitals, labs and pharmacies with even more discounts.
Chief MFS and Digital Officer at Jazz, Aamer Ejaz, said, “We have a great ambition to roll this product out to other health care providers nationwide. The idea is to gradually implement a cashless culture, which promotes convenience and safety in financial transactions online.”
“Healthpass is a free digital platform that supports all Pakistanis from all backgrounds, to improve health expenditure management. It also allows its consumers to find quality healthcare services nearby; pay using JazzCash and earn instant discounts on every medical payment,” said Saira Faysal, CEO at Healthpass.
JazzCash has also digitized multiple verticals including education, utility bill payments, government payments and well established e-commerce services’ payments.
