FitBUX is happy to announce that Laurel Road has won FitBUX’s 2019 award for the quality of their student loan refinance options for healthcare students.
FitBUX has helped new grads manage and eliminate over $700 million in student loans. We partner with seven student loan refinance companies and have an intimate knowledge of each, from their underwriting approach to their end to end processes.
Based on the experience of many FitBUX Members working in the healthcare industry, Laurel Road is a lender you “have to” get rates from as they offer some healthcare industry-specific discounts and features that will make their offering hard to beat in many instances.
For example, Laurel Road will offer an additional member rate discount if you belong to one of the professional organizations they’re partnered with – such as the ADA, AMA, or the APTA.
In addition, they also offer industry-specific features: medical and dental residents as well as fellows can pay $100 a month until six months after their residency or fellowship ends.
We are thrilled to count Laurel Road as a partner. We are looking forward to continuing to grow our partnership in the years to come to continuously to meet and exceed FitBUX Member’s needs, especially in the healthcare field.
Below are the key components we consider when selecting our winners:
Technology: This takes into account the overall online experience for both consumers and FitBUX.
Product Availability: Are the refinance products offered in all 50 sates?
Rate Competitiveness: Do they offer a competitive rate?
As highlighted above, Laurel Roads rate discounts, couple with key features, make them extremely competitive in the healthcare industry,
Rate Stability: Is the rate you’re seeing when you apply the same as the rate you will ultimately be offered?
Quality of Customer Service: This takes into account the experience for consumers, from underwriting to loan servicing.
- Ease of Interaction: How efficiently and easily can FitBUX work with a partner on behalf of a client?
- We’ve built a great, and growing, relationship with the team early on and this is key to our ongoing success.
