Kenko has launched Kenko Pay, a feature that allows Kenko subscribers to settle their medical bills cashlessly using their subscription benefits, eliminating the need for out-of-pocket spending, a statement from the company notified.
Kenko Pay leverages the UPI network, ensuring compatibility with any healthcare facility accepting UPI payments. Currently, this feature is available at more than 15,000 doctors’ offices over 16 specialties in 500 cities in India, the statement added.
Post a doctor consultation, Kenko subscribers can walk into 100,000 pharmacies across India to pick up prescribed medicines by scanning UPI QR codes and settling bills cashlessly with their available Kenko app. Pharmacy chains are also integrating their billing systems with Kenko, providing a seamless Over-The-Counter (OTC) payment experience where Kenko subscribers need to just share their registered phone number and OTP.
Aman Priyadarshi, Head of Product, Kenko Health, emphasised in the statement, “Our primary focus is to develop tech-driven solutions that effectively address the healthcare financing needs of Indians. Traditional health financing companies often fall short in prioritising the customer experience, burdening individuals with a cumbersome claims process designed to combat fraud. With Kenko Pay, we’ve significantly enhanced the customer experience, making benefit utilisation as simple as regular payments, all while reducing the risk of fraud to an unprecedented level within the industry. This starts an era in healthcare financing where claims are a thing of the past.”
