What to Know Before Choosing a Healthcare Financing Company

Medical expenses can be overwhelming on top of everyday expenses. Many financial institutions recognize that some individuals do not have sufficient health insurance and have sought to provide a solution. Common areas that are typically covered include dental, veterinary, audiology, dermatology, and vision. Not all companies take a credit score into account, facilitating services for more people. When getting a medical loan, borrowers can work with the loan servicer to establish a payment plan according to their financial ability.

Not all backing companies function the same way. As you are looking for a medical loans company, check the areas that each company will fund. Though vision, dental, veterinary, audiology, and dermatology are typically covered, some companies are willing to fund the following:

  • Diabetes
  • Metabolism
  • Ear, nose, and throat
  • Periodontics
  • Orthodontics
  • Endocrinology
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Chiropractics
  • Medical weight loss

Ask your lender what medical procedures are approved for funding before moving forward. 

Financing options and payment plans

How much money do you have available to you each month outside of necessary charges? 
Being a borrower of funds may seem burdensome, but the companies offering loans want to relieve that burden. A loan servicer will work with clients to find a repayment plan that is within their ability to pay. Depending on the plan you select, the loan or credit can be paid back over a period of months or even years. Most payment plans depend on loan amounts and include affordable monthly payments. Check with your doctor or the loan servicer to understand how your payment plan will work for them.

One way to minimize your expenses when setting up your loan term is to pay close attention to the interest rate for each payment plan. The interest rate you select can have a large impact on the amount you will pay in the long run. Here are a few different types of interest rates:

  • Fixed rate — This rate is established at the beginning of your loan repayment and will remain the same until the loan payment plan has been completed. In the long run, this can be beneficial if the rate that you begin with ends up being lower than a future rate.
  • Variable Rate — This rate will continue to change over time according to the market. This can be beneficial when the rate drops below the original rate you began with, but it provides no guarantee.
  • Annual Percentage Rate — The difference between this rate and the more traditional fixed rate is that the Annual percentage rate includes a number of hidden fees, including origination fees, closing fees, documentation fees, and other fees that may not be easily seen in an advertiser disclosure.

Credit report

Many lenders do not require a credit report when fielding applications for medical loans or medical credit cards. With the majority of these companies being equal opportunity lenders, it does not typically matter if you have good or bad credit.

If you do not have a good credit score, it could be beneficial to get a medical loan that is considered "unsecured" if you do not have the assets to back up a secured loan. Unsecured medical loans can eventually help to build your credit over time as you make your monthly payments. If you do have good credit and decide to get an unsecured loan, it can destroy your current credit.

How is my payment plan determined?

After choosing a lender, you will sit down with a loan servicer and go over your account. The payment plan will be determined based on the type of surgery or treatment and its cost. Monthly payments will be established and loan repayment will begin.

What are unsecured medical loans?

Unsecured loans are provided without any security for the lender. No assets are put down as collateral for the loan, making them riskier for the lender. This is the main reason for higher interest rates among unsecured loans. The failure of repayment or late monthly payments will result in a decrease to one's credit score.

What medical loans are the cheapest?

Finding the least expensive medical loans for you can be directly related to the reason for the loan. Companies that specialize in the particular type of loan you are requesting may provide a different price than a company that provides a variety of other financing options.

How do I choose a medical loan lender?

Start by assessing the reason that you need a loan. Search for a company that provides that particular type of loan. Once you have found the companies that will fund your request, talk to loan servicers to find out which will provide you the best interest rate and monthly payment plan.
