What is an ACH?...
Simply put, an ACH payment is nothing more than an electronic check. If you have ever made monthly payments on a life insurance policy, then you most likely had an ACH payment drawn automatically from your own checking account.
ACH payments allow businesses to accept payment without a paper check. With proper authorization from your patient, you can automatically withdraw money from your patient's bank account and deposit it into your own.
Who can initiate ACH transactions?
Anyone can - provided that they have proper authorization from the account holder and approved access through an ACH service provider like DOCPAY.
