He is a graduate of the prestigious United States Military Academy at West Point where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in General Engineering, and of the University of San Francisco where he received an MBA from its Masagung Graduate School of Management.
“I have been closely following and excited by the consumer payment space for some time, and when I began considering my next move, I knew VisitPay was the clear leader in patient financial engagement,” said Saxman. “The company’s mission of providing healthcare billing solutions that work for both consumers and providers, and the curiosity that drives the team drew me to this role. I am excited to utilize my expertise to contribute to VisitPay’s ongoing success, especially at a time when so many Americans are in need of a better, personalized healthcare experience.”
