Tenet Healthcare offers patients ability to pay bills online

For-profit hospital chain Tenet Healthcare has begun offering patients at its hospitals the ability to pay their bills online. To access the online payment system, patients treated at any of its 53 facilities will need to complete an enrollment process from their hospital's website. Once enrolled, they'll be able to make payments, update their profiles, set up recurring payment plans, access a glossary of billing terms and view answers to frequently asked billing questions. The application supporting the billing functions is NCR Corp.'s Online Bill Pay, which Tenet pilot-tested earlier this year.
