SaveIn, Founded in 2020 by Jitin Bhasin, Anurag Varma and Gaurav Luthra, caters to healthcare needs by offering financing and credit options to patients at zero-cost equated monthly instalments (EMIs) across its network of healthcare providers.
The Gurugram-based startup covers outpatient services and elective healthcare procedures like dental, eye care, veterinary, dermatology, haircare, and fertility.
The fintech startup is creating a network of healthcare providers to offer embedded finance and pay-later options at clinics in the country. It is also working to create a hyperlocal discovery platform to cater to the healthcare needs of individuals.
The company competes with the likes of ZestMoney, LazyPay and other buy now pay later (BNPL) platforms. However, the startup focuses only on offering credit offline to healthcare services. Globally, SaveIn mirrors the business models of US-based Sunbit and Scratchpay.
Jitin Bhasin, Co-founder of SaveIn, said, “We are planning to enhance and develop our product in the next 3-6 months…basically all the money will be used for the growth of our business.”
“We currently have around 500 healthcare providers on our platform; we will be onboarding around 5,000 more by the end of this year. Our platform will have the combined business model of Practo and ZestMoney for healthcare. We will be aggregating private healthcare practices on one side and will make it affordable and accessible,” Bhasin added.
