The numbers speak for themselves - 47% of American adults polled in 2018 were unable to cover an emergency expense of $4001. 40% of respondents skipped treatment or a medical test because of an inability to afford treatment1 and over 25% of respondents had their medical bills handed over to a collection agency*. Enter ClearGage. ClearGage, LLC is revolutionizing the way healthcare providers do business with their consumer-centric healthcare payment technology.
That being said, out-of-pocket dental expenses and patient deductibles have risen immensely in the past two decades. Patients are having a difficult time paying for insurance to maintain their dental health with routine appointments. The bottom line is that it’s getting harder for patients to pay for their care.
ClearGage’s mission is to help practices enhance the quality of life for patients when they need help the most by providing ethical, flexible payment solutions, regardless of a patient’s creditworthiness. A patient shouldn’t have to worry about the added financial stress of paying for unforeseen dental complications.
By offering innovative healthcare payment solutions that are HIPAA and PCI compliant, ClearGage is doing its part to bring proven retail payment solutions to dentistry while simplifying the calculation and collection of patient payments.

She didn’t just answer my questions, she also provided me several helpful hints, that I didn’t know existed. She is my savior! She was attentive, very helpful and fabulous! I just wanted you to know what a great employee you have.”
“Jennifer, YOU are the BEST!! Once again, thank you sooooo much for all of your support today. In my panicked moment, you helped me see that everything is ok and will work out just perfectly!
You were patient and were able to interpret my garbled questions. You took the time to teach me and went the extra mile to get me helpful information I didn't even know I needed. Your quick response to my email, proactive outreach to me via phone, and then recollection of all of my questions when I was eventually able to call you back was so impressive! On top of it all, in a blink of an eye you resolved an issue our office didn't know could be changed.
My sincerest, warmest, most heartfelt ‘thanks!’ go out to you!”
