The Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network has been providing the highest level of care to patients in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding regions for nearly 115 years.

How AblePay Benefits Our Patients

AblePay is a NO-COST program that allows you to save on your out-of-pocket medical expenses (deductibles, coinsurance, and copays) while assisting if you ever have questions regarding your bill. 

 

We know that it sounds too good to be true, but we can promise you there is no catch. Here’s how it works: 

 

AblePay is assisting Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network in reducing our expenses related to patient payments. Having AblePay process these patient claims on our behalf means lower costs and guaranteed payments for the health system. AblePay then takes a portion of these savings and shares them with their members (our patients) who can then save on their out-of-pocket medical expenses. They simply retain a portion of the savings to fund the work they do for both Good Shepherd and for our patients.

 

AblePay can be used with any health insurance, including Medicare, so almost everyone is eligible to participate. You can also include anyone on your account that you are willing to be financially responsible for, even if they have a different insurance plan! All Good Shepherd patients are automatically accepted into the program without any credit checks!

 

AblePay works for our patients by providing savings, up to 13%, on your out-of-pocket medical expenses. They also provide flexible payment options to give you time allowing you to pay medical bills on terms that meet your current financial needs. Since all your Good Shepherd bills are conveniently stored in your AblePay portal, paying your bills has never been easier. Plus, the AblePay billing advocates are available to answer any questions you may have regarding a bill. 

Do not hesitate, enroll today and let AblePay Health work for you!

The Good Shepherd and AblePay Health Story


There is a rich history regarding Good Shepherd and the residents of the Lehigh Valley. Good Shepherd traces its pioneering spirit for innovation and compassionate care to its founding family, The Rev. John “Papa” Raker and D. Estella “Mama” Raker. In 1908, the Rakers opened the Good Shepherd Home to care for children with disabilities and senior citizens in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Since then, the network has grown to include more than 70 locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and has become a nationally recognized leader in rehabilitation services.

In addition, the network has a decade-plus partnership with Penn Medicine. Good Shepherd Penn Partners, provides specialized inpatient, long-term acute care and medical and physical rehabilitation for patients transferred from medical, surgical, and intensive care units at Penn Medicine, while also operating outpatient therapy centers.

The connection with AblePay Health is a more recent part of that history.

AblePay Health, based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was founded in 2016 with a mission to offer a simple solution to the rising out-of-pocket medical expenses that many patients face today.

Good Shepherd became aware of AblePay through mutual contacts in the healthcare industry. We immediately recognized the value their program provided to our patients as well as the impact they could have in helping the health system control our receivable expenses.

Since 2017, AblePay Health has been working with medical providers, patients, and employers in eastern Pennsylvania. They have recently expanded services to include Ohio, Kentucky, and Georgia. We are excited to partner with them to assist our patients with their out-of-pocket medical expenses!




How to Use AblePay


The first step is becoming a member. Enrolling is simple and takes less than five minutes.

  • Just use any of the “ Enroll” buttons on this page.
  • Enter your demographic information as prompted.
  • Add your family members that you’ll be responsible for (they can have a different insurance plan).
  • Select your default payment term and add your payment method(s).
  • Review the terms of service, privacy policy and verify your email.
  • Receive your AblePay card(s) in the mail and keep with your insurance card. 
The next time you visit a Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network provider, show your AblePay card when you present or verify your primary health insurance. Good Shepherd will process your AblePay card like secondary insurance. After your service is complete and your insurance company processes your claim, Good Shepherd will bill AblePay. You will get an email from AblePay notifying you that they received your bill and the amount you owe (after your insurance processes the claim). Your insurance carrier will still provide your Explanation of Benefits (EOB). Once notified of a new claim, you will have 5 days to decide if you would like to change your payment method and term to meet your financial needs. If you make no changes, after 5 days the first payment will be pulled from your default payment method based on the default term you chose during enrollment.  The best part is that you may utilize the program at any Good Shepherd location, hospital, walk-in care, lab, or physician office!
