Common Vet CareCredit Q&A

 

 

Who is  Vet CareCredit?

CareCredit, a part of GE Capital, offers healthcare financing for consumers through a network of over 175,000 providers. Founded in 1987, CareCredit was initially offered to doctors to help their patients pay for new dental implant technology. Continued advancements in technology, and procedures that are often not covered or fully covered by insurance, have created new choices for care, increasing the demand for special financing options. CareCredit is a health, beauty, and wellness credit card that can be used as a payment option for certain expenses not covered by insurance or to bridge situations when desired care exceeds insurance coverage. You can even use it for co-payments and deductibles. CareCredit is ideal for:

  • Dental care
  • LASIK
  • Eyeglasses and contacts
  • (Vet) Veterinary medicine
  • Hearing care
  • Cosmetic treatments and surgery

How do I qualify for Vet CareCredit?

Approval is based on information from your credit application and past credit history. This includes information from the primary applicant as well as any co-applicant. Co-applicant may be required to qualify for Vet CareCredit.

Why do doctors offer Vet CareCredit?

Many patients put off Vet treatments and procedures because they cannot afford to pay. Veterinarians offer CareCredit payment options as an alternative to consumer credit cards, cash or checks. CareCredit allows you to pay over time instead of a lump sum prior to treatment. Offering CareCredit removes the accounts receivable responsibilities from the doctor and allows them to focus on recommending and providing the best care to their patients
