Kansas City, Mo.-based Cerner Healthe has recently launched a combined health plan ID and payment cards with an integrated line of credit for healthcare consumers.

According to Cerner, it selected Greenwood Village, Colo.-based First Data Healthcare Services to provide it with healthcare payment card processing services, and UMB Healthcare Services to serve as the financial custodian, supporting debit card access and HSA services.

The company contends Cerner Healthe plans to integrate this new technology with other employer groups that utilize the Healthe claims administration services.
