Protecting Yourself from Fraud
Recently, there has been fraudulent websites emerge online that attempt to solicit payment from healthcare patients. Some of these websites seek to mimic athenahealth’s QuickPay Portal. Athenahealth’s Quick Pay Portal is secure, however, fraudulent look-alike websites with similar names have begun to appear in internet search results. Patients should only make online payments using the URL provided on their patient billing statements.
Here are some warning signs that they’ve reached an imposter site:
- The site asks for personal information (e.g. name or address) or payment balance
- Being told to call a customer service line to process a payment
- Receiving an error message such as “payment on hold,” “transaction pending,” “error processing your payment,” “oops,” etc.
- Poorly translated text and instructions for using the site
- Links to other non-athenahealth sites
- Ads – some sites don’t collect visitor information but receive ad revenue for every visit. The athenahealth QuickPay Portal doesn’t have any advertisements
Your patient portal, Athenahealth, is a secure website that gives you convenient 24-hour access to your personal health information and enables you to communicate with health care providers online.
