Last Modified: November 2, 2022
This Addendum is entered into by and between Provider and SuperBill as of the Effective Date. The Parties agree that this Addendum supplements and is incorporated by reference into the SuperBill Terms of Service (“Terms”), and any reference to the “Terms” therein will be deemed to include this Addendum. By signing or accepting this Addendum in writing or electronically, you agree to this Addendum and affirm your acceptance of the Terms. The Terms and this Addendum, govern your use of the “Services,” whereby SuperBill may purchase Receivables, and also makes available to the Patients a method to pay such Receivables.
The Parties further agree as follows:
Unless otherwise defined in this Addendum, terms defined in the Terms have the same meanings when used in this Addendum. In this Addendum, the following terms will have the following meanings:

A Patient’s financial inability to pay a Receivable, such as due to Patient’s insolvency, is not a Dispute.

Provider agrees that:
Before Provider may access the Services, SuperBill may conduct a due diligence evaluation of and approve, in its sole discretion, Provider for such access. SuperBill’s due diligence of Provider (including its personnel) may include evaluating any history of litigation, licenses, and complaints, historic chargeback rates and losses, tax returns, legal status, financial background and overall financial health, professional qualifications, relationships with any insurers or governmental bodies or programs, the nature or operation of Provider’s business, and any other information reasonably requested by SuperBill. Provider authorizes SuperBill to obtain business credit reports and make other inquiries of any financial institution, governmental body or program, insurer, lender, and trade credit references identified by Provider, and other information sources as SuperBill deems appropriate. Provider agrees to provide all information that SuperBill may reasonably request while performing such due diligence. SuperBill reserves the right at any time, in its sole discretion, to reassess Provider’s eligibility for the Services.
SuperBill will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available to you and to enable your Patients to pay Receivables using the SuperPay feature of the Services, during the term of this Addendum. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Addendum is intended to create a borrower/lender relationship between you and us.
(i) SuperPay. SuperBill will provide Patients the SuperPay service as an option to pay Receivables (“SuperPay”), subject to Provider’s satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Exhibit A and any other requirements of SuperBill to integrate SuperPay into Provider’s systems. When a Patient enrolls in SuperPay to pay one or more Receivables, SuperBill will obtain the Patient’s authorization to charge or debit the Patient’s bank account or another payment method supported by SuperPay from time to time for payment of the Receivable, if the Receivable is eligible for payment via SuperPay. We may change the payment methods we accept from Patients at any time in our sole discretion. SuperBill may purchase from Provider the Receivable, as set forth in Section 2(b)(ii) and Section 4. Following such enrollment and authorization, SuperBill will process and receive the Patient’s payment for the Receivable. You understand that the separate Patient-facing SuperPay agreement and any Patient payment authorization is strictly between SuperPay and the Patient. By authorizing a payment through SuperPay, the Patient consents to the authorization and SuperBill’s collection of up to the full amount of each Receivable, plus applicable fees, if any. Provider has no authorization to take a payment from the Patient in respect of a Receivable for which such an enrolled Patient has authorized payment via SuperPay.
(ii) Receivables Purchase. In respect of Receivables for which a Patient enrolled in SuperPay has an active, unrevoked payment authorization to pay via SuperPay, SuperBill may purchase such Receivables as set forth in Section 3 of this Addendum.
Although the Services may help Provider offer trade credit terms to Patients, as evidenced by Patient Contracts, Provider is solely responsible for designing the trade credit terms offered to its Patients, underwriting and making credit decisions regarding its Patients, and providing any disclosures to Patients, each in compliance with applicable law.
Provider will use the Services only within the United States, and any transactions relating to the Services will also occur only within the United States and only with Patients in the United States.
Provider will not impose on any Patient any interest, surcharge, penalty, or fee (including service fees, late fees, credit card surcharges, and convenience fees) in connection with Patient’s use of SuperPay; and Provider will not charge any Patient any price for goods, services, or transactions in connection with Patient’s use of SuperPay that are greater than any price imposed on goods, services, or transactions that do not involve Patient’s use of SuperPay.
Provider represents, warrants, and covenants on a continuing basis that the Bank Account is and will be: (i) established and maintained by Provider in good standing at a depository institution in the United States, the deposits of which are insured up to applicable limits by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; (ii) titled in Provider’s legal name; (iii) a business demand account; (iv) used solely for Provider’s business operations and not for any personal, family, household, or other consumer purposes; (v) able to transact and process ACH account debits. Provider will not change the Bank Account without SuperBill’s prior written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld. SuperBill is not responsible for any losses that result from Provider’s failure to notify SuperBill or obtain SuperBill’s approval for any changes to the Bank Account. Provider authorizes SuperBill to initiate an ACH account debit from the Bank Account for any amount owed by Provider to SuperBill under this Addendum. SuperBill is not responsible for any non-sufficient funds fees, overdraft fees, or other fees that may be incurred if the Bank Account has insufficient funds or for any other fees or charges assessed by Provider’s depository institution. Within two business days of the Effective Date, Provider must check with its depository institution to determine if the Bank Account has an ACH account debit block or filter to reject unauthorized ACH account debits, and, if so, authorize SuperBill to process ACH account debits on the Bank Account. Provider will notify SuperBill immediately if any transactions on the Bank Account contemplated by this Addendum are not so authorized, and in that event, SuperBill may terminate or suspend provision of the Services. Any revocation of an authorization, or failure to provide SuperBill with the requisite authorization to conduct any transaction under this Addendum, does not and will not affect Provider’s payment obligation to SuperBill. If any SuperBill ACH transaction is returned due to an ACH account debit block, filter, or any other reason, Provider must promptly pay any resulting fees or charges, including any that may be assessed on SuperBill.
Subject to your rights and obligations regarding the use and protection of SuperBill’s Intellectual Property Rights and Marks, as set forth in this Addendum and the Terms, you agree to prominently display the SuperBill or SuperPay name and logo anywhere that you identify or describe the payment methods available to your Patients for paying Receivables, and in any event no less prominently than you display such other available payment methods. You agree that any such display, identification, or description, will be accurate, will not be unfair, deceptive, or abusive, and will comply with applicable law and licenses to use such Marks. You may not discriminate against SuperBill or SuperPay, discourage use of SuperPay in any way, or favor any other payment method available to your Patients over SuperPay.
Provider agrees to establish and maintain records of the Patient Contracts and of goods or services performed, delivered, shipped, or provided to the Patient, from which each Receivable arises, including, as may be required by the payment networks, proof of performance, delivery, shipment, or provision of such goods or services to the Patient. Provider is solely responsible for performing, delivering, shipping, or providing the goods or services to the Patient, from which each Receivable arises.
Provider represents, warrants, and covenants that it will not request or obtain any bank account information, payment card numbers, payment credentials, or other non-public personal or financial information from the Patient in connection with the Patient’s use of SuperPay.
Provider will use industry-standard security and fraud prevention measures to prevent fraudulent and unauthorized use of the Services by Provider or the Patient. Provider bears sole responsibility for any fraudulent or unauthorized use of the Services, or chargebacks associated with fraudulent or unauthorized use of the Services.
SuperBill may use one or more financial institutions or payment processors in order to provide the Services.
In the event any payment charge or transaction made by Provider or by a Patient in connection with the Services is rejected for insufficient funds or any other reason, SuperBill may, at its discretion, retry the transaction up to two additional times, unless prohibited by law or payment network rules. Provider understands that SuperBill or the financial institution that issued or holds the selected payment method may charge a fee each time a transaction or attempt is returned unpaid. In the event of a return or chargeback of any Patient payment, Provider agrees to cooperate with SuperBill to remedy or resolve the issue underlying the return or chargeback.
Provider (including its personnel) will comply, at Provider’s expense, with all applicable laws, regulations, rules, ordinances and orders of governmental bodies having jurisdiction over Provider, its business, and its personnel, and the rules and guidelines of any payment network used to process a transaction in connection with the Services, including the Rules and Operating Guidelines of the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) and the payment card network rules. Provider will comply with all terms of the policies, procedures, and guidelines of SuperBill governing the Services. We reserve the right to amend, modify or change our policies, procedures and guidelines, and you must comply fully with all of them in their then-current form.
We may refuse any SuperPay transaction for any reason in our sole discretion. We may temporarily or permanently refuse to make SuperPay available for future transactions if Provider is in breach of this Addendum or the Terms, or if SuperBill has reason to doubt collectability of such future transactions.
You will promptly notify us of, and assist us in diagnosing, any failures in the Services. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to repair any failures in the Services or otherwise arrange for necessary maintenance for the Services. We cannot guarantee that any such repair or maintenance efforts will be successful. If our repair or maintenance efforts are not successful within 14 business days, you may terminate this Addendum in accordance with Section 9 below. Your right to terminate constitutes your only remedy, and our only liability, for any interruptions, outages, or others delays in the Services.
Provider will offer for sale to SuperBill any Receivable owed to Provider by a Patient, where such Patient enrolled in SuperPay and has an active, unrevoked payment authorization to pay the Receivable via SuperPay. SuperBill may decide to purchase, but is not obligated to purchase, any such Receivable that Provider offers for sale to SuperBill. No Receivable owed by a Patient who is not enrolled in SuperPay or who does not have an active, unrevoked payment authorization to pay via SuperPay, may be offered or sold by Provider to any person other than SuperBill, unless the Receivable first has been offered to and declined by SuperBill in accordance with the terms of this Addendum.
SuperBill may set a Purchase Limit and may from time to time change the Purchase Limit in its sole discretion. SuperBill will notify Provider of the imposition of a Purchase Limit and any changes to the Purchase Limit if required by applicable law.
SuperBill will charge, and Provider agrees to pay, the Discount with respect to each Purchased Receivable. For each Receivables Purchase Transaction, the Discount is zero percent (0%) of the face (gross) amount of the Purchased Receivable, provided that Provider successfully charges and accepts the Purchase Price to SuperBill’s debit card according to the instructions that we provide you, as updated from time to time. If Provider charges or accepts the Purchase Price using any other method, then the Discount will be the amount set by SuperBill in its sole discretion, up to four percent (4%) of the face (gross) amount of the Purchased Receivable. Payment of the Discount is due immediately upon SuperBill’s purchase of such Receivable.
For each Receivables Purchase Transaction agreed to by SuperBill, Provider will charge the Purchase Price to SuperBill’s debit card according to the instructions that we provide you, as updated from time to time. Upon Provider’s initiation of such a charge to SuperBill’s debit card, all of Provider’s right, title, and interest in the Purchased Receivable, including any rights to payment, are absolutely and irrevocably sold, transferred, and assigned to SuperBill. SuperBill does not assume any liabilities or obligations related to any Purchased Receivable; any such liabilities and obligations remain solely with Provider. All taxes incurred by Provider or SuperBill in such transactions will be borne by Provider.
With respect to Receivables Purchase Transactions, the relationship between the Parties is of seller (i.e., Provider) and purchaser (i.e., SuperBill) of Receivables; the Parties’ relationship is not one of lender and borrower. SuperBill’s right to receive payment on account of any Purchased Receivable is generally non-recourse. This means that if the Patient pays SuperBill an amount that is less than the amount of the Purchased Receivable—for example, if the Patient subsequently becomes insolvent—and Provider has not breached this Addendum and the applicable Purchased Receivable is not subject to a repurchase under Section 4(k), then Provider will have no payment obligation to SuperBill on such Purchased Receivable.
All Purchased Receivables will be serviced, collected, and administered by SuperBill, with full right to take any action in doing so, including changing the terms of any Purchased Receivable. Any such action could adversely affect, including reducing the value of, any Receivable that SuperBill does not purchase from Provider, and Provider agrees that SuperBill will have no liability for any such effects. Provider authorizes SuperBill to notify each Patient of SuperBill’s interest in any Purchased Receivable owed by such Patient. If instructed by SuperBill, Provider will immediately (i) notify the relevant Patient in writing that SuperBill has purchased the Purchased Receivable and (ii) provide SuperBill with any and all requested contact information related to such Patient. If Provider receives any payment on a Purchased Receivable from a Patient, insurer, governmental body or program, or any other person, Provider must notify SuperBill immediately, segregate the amount of such payment in trust for SuperBill’s benefit, and immediately remit the amount of such payment to SuperBill. Provider will provide SuperBill any requested assistance regarding servicing, collecting, and administering any Purchased Receivable and facilitating payment of any Purchased Receivable.
Provider acknowledges and agrees that it is intended that the conveyance of all right, title, and interest in and to the Purchased Receivables is and will be an absolute and irrevocable sale, conveyance, and transfer conveying title, free and clear of any Lien, and that such Purchased Receivables will not be part of Provider’s estate (or bankruptcy estate) in the event of an insolvency proceeding with respect to Provider (which will include, for the avoidance of doubt, the filing of a decree or order for relief by a court having jurisdiction in respect of Provider or any substantial part of its property in an involuntary case under Title 11 of the United States Code or any other state or federal applicable insolvency law now or later in effect, or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, custodian, trustee, sequestrator, or similar official for Provider or for any substantial part of its property, or ordering the winding-up or liquation of Provider’s affairs, or the commencement by Provider of a voluntary case under any applicable insolvency law now or later in effect, or the consent by Provider to the entry of an order for relief in an involuntary case under any such law, or the consent by Provider to the appointment of or taking possession by a receiver, liquidator, assignee, custodian, trustee, sequestrator, or similar official for Provider or for any substantial part of its property, or the making by Provider of any general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the failure by Provider to pay its debts as such debts become due, or the taking of Provider of any action in furtherance of any of the foregoing). It is not intended that such conveyance be deemed a pledge of the Purchased Receivables to SuperBill to secure a debt or other obligation of Provider. If, however, notwithstanding such intention, the purchase and sale provided for in Section 4 is determined to be a transfer for security, then this Addendum will be deemed to be, and hereby is, a “security agreement” within the meaning of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, and Provider grants to SuperBill a first priority security interest in, and lien on, all right, title, and interest in and to the Purchased Receivables, now existing or later arising or created, to secure the prompt and complete payment of any loan deemed to have been made, together with all of the other obligations of Provider under this Addendum. SuperBill will have, in addition to the rights and remedies that it may have under this Addendum, all other rights and remedies provided to a secured creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code and other applicable law or equity, which rights and remedies will be cumulative. Provider authorizes SuperBill to file one or more financing statements (including any continuation or amendment) consistent with the applicable Uniform Commercial Code, identifying Provider as “debtor” and/or “seller,” in any applicable filing office in any applicable jurisdiction that SuperBill deems necessary or desirable in order to perfect or give notice of the irrevocable purchase and sale of the Purchased Receivables and/or the security interest granted by Provider in such Receivables and Related Assets under this Section 4(g). Any such financing statement may state that such sale is a sale and not an assignment for security and may state that Provider is prohibited from obtaining any financing that impairs the value of the Purchased Receivables or SuperBill’s right to collect or realize same.
Provider must notify SuperBill of any Dispute within five days of becoming aware of it. Resolving Disputes is solely the responsibility of Provider. Provider will work directly with Patient in good faith to SuperBill the Dispute. Provider will provide SuperBill periodic updates, as requested by SuperBill, regarding the status of the Dispute. A Dispute is resolved when Patient pays the full Receivable balance (or unpaid remainder of such balance) to Provider. If Provider is unable to resolve a Dispute related to a Purchased Receivable within ten days, or otherwise adjusts the amount or changes the payment terms or due date of a Purchased Receivable that is subject to a Dispute, Provider must repurchase the Purchased Receivable and pay to SuperBill the Repurchase Price immediately upon demand. SuperBill is authorized to initiate ACH account debits from the Bank Account in the amount of the Repurchase Price. In the absence of a Dispute, Provider will refer to SuperBill any Patient who asks Provider to adjust the amount or change the payment terms or due date of a Purchased Receivable.
Provider will not take any action or make any omission (including (i) adjusting or allowing an adjustment to the amount or changing the payment terms or due date of a Purchased Receivable, (ii) selling, transferring or assigning, or attempting to sell, transfer, or assign, a Purchased Receivable or any interest therein to any other person; and (iii) placing or allowing placement of a Lien on any Purchased Receivable) that has, individually or in the aggregate, an adverse effect on any Purchased Receivable or on the ability to collect on any Purchased Receivable.
Provider will take all actions requested by SuperBill, as applicable, to preserve and protect SuperBill’s right, title, and interest in and to any Purchased Receivable and to realize Patient payment in full on any such Purchased Receivable.
If Provider breaches any of its Receivable-level representations, warranties, or covenants in Section 4(i) or Section 5(b) with respect to any Purchased Receivable, Provider must give SuperBill notice of any such breach immediately upon becoming aware of it. Upon discovering any such breach (through Provider or otherwise), SuperBill may require Provider, and Provider hereby agrees, to repurchase the related Purchase Receivable from SuperBill by paying the Repurchase Price immediately upon demand. Provider hereby authorizes SuperBill to initiate ACH account debits from the Bank Account in the amount of the Repurchase Price.
Provider represents, warrants, and covenants on a continuing basis: (i) Provider is and will be duly organized business entity, validly existing, and in good standing under the laws of its organizational jurisdiction, duly qualified to do business in each jurisdiction where it conducts its business, and have and will have the full power and authority to carry on its business in the manner conducted as of the date of this Addendum; (ii) Provider has and will have full power and authority to enter into, deliver, and perform all its obligations under this Addendum, and it has and will have been duly authorized to do so by any necessary organizational action; (iii) there are and will be no laws, organizational instruments, contracts, or any other circumstances that would conflict with or prevent Provider from entering into or performing its obligations under this Addendum; (iv) the individual executing this Addendum on Provider’s behalf is at least 18 years of age and has the authority and legal capacity necessary to bind Provider; (v) following execution and delivery, this Addendum constitutes the valid and binding obligation of Provider, enforceable against Provider in accordance with its terms; (vi) Provider has and will maintain insurance in such amounts and against such risks as are reasonably necessary to protect its business and will provide proof of such insurance to SuperBill upon reasonable request; (vii) Provider (including its personnel) is and will be in possession of and compliance with all licenses, permits, approvals, consents, and other authorizations required by any governmental body or program to conduct its business; (viii) Provider (including its personnel) is and will be in compliance with all laws, regulations, ordinances, orders, and other requirements of any governmental body or program; (ix) Provider (including its personnel) is not and will not be a target of any economic or trade sanctions issued or administered by any governmental body; (x) all tax returns and tax reports, and all taxes due and payable or required to be filed by Provider have been or will be filed and paid, on a timely basis (including any extensions); (xi) Provider has no and will have no material liabilities and no material contingent liabilities, except those which Provider disclosed to SuperBill in writing before the Effective Date and except current liabilities incurred in the ordinary course of business; (xii) Provider is not and will not be subject to any Lien, except those which Provider disclosed to SuperBill in writing before the Effective Date and except those incurred in the ordinary course of business; (xiii) Provider will promptly notify SuperBill of any significant change or other development that has or may have a material adverse effect on or a significant change in Provider’s business, and Provider agrees to provide to SuperBill, upon request, any information related to Provider’s business or the transactions contemplated by this Addendum; (xiv) there is and will be no action, suit, claim, inquiry, investigation, or legal, administrative, or arbitration proceeding pending or currently threatened, whether at law, in equity, or before any governmental body, against Provider; (xv) Provider has not declared bankruptcy within the past seven years preceding the Effective Date, has not consulted with a bankruptcy attorney within the past six months preceding the Effective Date, and is not and will not contemplate or anticipate the filing of a bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding, or closing or materially modifying Provider’s business; (xvi) Provider is and will be solvent and capable of fulfilling its obligations under this Addendum, and Provider has not been having and will not have any difficulty paying amounts due to others in full and when due; (xvii) and any information, materials, data, content, or documents Provider directly or indirectly provides to SuperBill are true, correct, and complete, and nothing material has been omitted; and (xviii) Provider has entered into this Addendum solely for business purposes and not for any personal, family, household, or other consumer purposes.

SuperBill may set off any Discounts, Repurchase Prices, costs, expenses, indemnification amounts, and any other amounts Provider owes SuperBill, as applicable, against any Purchase Prices or other amounts owed by SuperBill to Provider.
Neither Party shall use the other Party’s Confidential Information for any purpose whatsoever outside of the scope of this Addendum, nor shall either Party disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written consent of the other Party. Each Party further shall take all reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized disclosure of the other’s Confidential Information. Each Party shall limit access to Confidential Information to those of its employees, contractors, and agents who need such access for purposes consistent with this Addendum and shall be responsible for any breach of this Section 7 by such employees, contractors, and agents. It is understood that each Party’s Confidential Information shall remain the sole property of such Party. In the event that either Party becomes legally compelled (by law, rule, regulation, subpoena, or similar court process) to disclose any Confidential Information, such Party will, to the extent legally permissible, provide the other Party with immediate notice of such circumstances and will limit such disclosure to only what is specifically required.
To evaluate your compliance with this Addendum and the Terms, we may from time to time request access to and audit your premises, business, operations, systems, transaction processing terminals, books, records, documents, data, and information. You will maintain accurate and complete books and records related to this Addendum and the Terms, and you will provide us with any assistance we may reasonably request in connection with such requests and audits, including providing any access, documents, materials, information, and data requested and making available your employees, contractors, agents, and representatives to answer our questions during any audit.
