Holliston, Massachusetts – March 19, 2024 – CoFi, Inc., a provider of an innovative, multi-provider payment software platform for elective medical practices, announced today that over 5,000 eye care providers nationwide are now using CoFi’s multi-party payments platform. This marks a significant milestone for the company that has seen rapid growth of its customer base since the CoFi platform was launched nearly three years ago.


“Our practice has been using CoFi for over two years now to simplify patient payments to our practice, the surgery center, and external optometrists for surgical procedures," said Krishna Sanka, M.D., cornea and refractive surgeon at The Eye Centers of Racine and Kenosha. "We strive to optimize the patient care experience while we enhance and preserve their vision, and CoFi is an essential part of that. It makes the entire payment process much smoother and easier for our patients and for each provider."


CoFi’s initial focus has been in the ophthalmic space, where elective surgeries, such as premium cataract and LASIK procedures, often involve multiple providers—e.g., a surgeon, surgery center, and co-managing optometrist. Patients traditionally have had to pay each different provider at different points in time, or surgeons have risked compliance issues by collecting for and remitting payment to their surgical partners. With CoFi, patients have one convenient payment event (“one swipe”) through which they make separate, distinct payments to each provider. CoFi recently announced that patient payments with the CareCredit credit card, a Synchrony solution, can now be processed through CoFi’s multi-party payments platform.


“I am thrilled about the rapid adoption of our platform in eye care practices nationwide which reflects well on our commitment to providing a best-in-class payment solution that delivers significant benefits to providers and surgery centers, and their patients,” said Sean Hanlon, CoFi’s founder and CEO. “We are thankful to all of our customers for their continued partnership and feedback, as our team is dedicated to continually improving our product and the patient experience for premium procedures.”
