Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve signed up for my Hint Core account, what are the next steps?

A. Once the initial onboarding form has been completed, you will receive two emails: one to create your account login and a second one to schedule time with our Customer Success team to review your account configurations and go through training.

B. If you have an existing practice and need data migration, our Customer Success team will work with you to get your data migrated into your Hint Core account free of charge.

C. If you or your staff need additional training or have any questions about your account, please feel free to contact support@hint.com.

Can Hint Core support hybrid model practices?

Yes. Many hybrid practices use Hint Core to power the DPC side of their practice, but another solution will be needed to handle insurance claims.

Is Hint Core HIPAA-compliant?


Can I upgrade my account to a different Hint Core plan after getting started?

Yes, you can contact support@hint.com to upgrade your account at any point.

Is there an app that can be downloaded for Hint Core?

Hint Core is a cloud-based platform that can be accessed from an internet browser on any device with internet access; there is no mobile app.

Can a member update their information?

A member can update their payment information in Hint's self-serve patient portal, which gives your members a single place to view their membership details, pay and manage their invoices, payment sources, agreements, and update contact info.

Where can I learn more about how integrations work?

Is there a merchant processor in the platform?

Stripe is integrated into the platform.

Can any other payment processors be integrated?

Not at this time, but we do plan to enable additional payment gateways in the future.

Does the patient's payment information get stored on file?

It depends on whether or not a patient is signing up for a membership or one time visit.

If a patient enrolls for a membership online, payment information will be collected and stored securely with Stripe during enrollment. Additionally, upon entering their payment information, they will see the following notice of authorization:

“By submitting your account information, you authorize to electronically debit and credit your account on a recurring basis as set forth in your membership agreement or as displayed to you during the enrollment process. You understand you can contact to revoke this authorization at any time.”

If a patient is not a member and is only signing up for a one-time visit through online enrollment, their payment will be collected upfront, but their payment information will not be stored. If this patient would like to keep payment information on file, they can be sent a request through the platform.
