March 5, 2008
Chase launches elective health-care financing division to offer providers and patients flexible financing options.

WILMINGTON, Delaware--Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co., has announced that it has finalized the acquisition of Unicorn Financial Services.

Unicorn Financial is a leading patient financing company. The combined company officially has launched its expanded set of patient financing products as ChaseHealthAdvance financing options.

Rising medical and dental costs have created a need for new and adaptive health-care financing options. In addition, the demand for elective procedures ranging from dental, vision correction and cosmetic procedures to veterinary care for pets, is increasing at a rapid rate.

The knowledge base that Chase has built in providing consumer credit to millions of credit card holders prompted Chase to develop ChaseHealthAdvance.

"As a premier and trusted financial institution, Chase is able to offer affordable, flexible options for those looking to finance health-care procedures, as well as provide competitive service fees for providers," said Hugh Bleemer, general manager, ChaseHealthAdvance.

ChaseHealthAdvance benefits to providers and patients include:

* Flexible, no-interest payment plans;
* Very competitive service fees for providers;
* New extended payment plans;
* Higher approval rates;
* Credit lines to provide for current and future procedures; and
* Superior customer service for providers and patients.

Additionally, medical practitioners will have access to Chase's financial products, such as business banking, real estate financing, equipment leasing, cash management, credit card processing, and loan products.

Chase has designed no interest payment plans with competitive service fees exclusively for doctors to offer their patients.
