healthcare companies nationwide. Previously, Pass was a combat arms
officer in the United States Marine Corps.

"I was in a very fortunate position at the number one banking platform
in healthcare to be exposed to unique solutions across the entire
industry, and I was especially intrigued by those that were
demonstrating high growth by positively impacting multiple constituents
in the sector," said Pass. "I sought out an opportunity with CarePayment
because of its unique value proposition in patient financial engagement,
its proven financial results for healthcare providers, and its patient
experience approach to the healthcare affordability crisis. I am
thrilled to be a part of the CarePayment story."

Pass is active in the Nashville community and serves as a member of the
