CareCredit also has a lot of great features for its cardholders. CareCredit's card can be used for a broad range of services. The CareCredit credit card can be used as a payment option for out-of-pocket costs that aren’t covered by medical insurance. CareCredit also provides special financing options that customers might not get with other cards. It also helps patients pay for care that may exceed insurance coverage. The credit card can be used for a wide range of services but is primarily used for these procedures:
Second, their extensive network of participating providers. With a network of over 200,000 providers, patients have plenty of options to choose from when using their CareCredit credit card. This is very important, as members do not want to feel limited to only a few options for their medical needs. CareCredit strives to have the flexibility and network options its members desire so they can choose a provider best suited to their needs. Members can search for providers online with CareCredit's "Find a Doctor" tool. Being able to search by zip code, profession, or doctor name, gives members the options for their specific needs.
Third, CareCredit makes applying for a card as simple as possible. Most people can feel very overwhelmed when it comes to healthcare financing. However, CareCredit helps with this stress. Simply apply online, on the website, and wait for credit approval. Once approved, you can begin using your CareCredit card immediately. CareCredit will then send you monthly statements, keeping you up to date on your transactions and account.
CareCredit offers both short-term financing and long-term healthcare financing. A great benefit to using CareCredit for your healthcare financing needs is their promotional financing options, which give you more payment options to choose from. You can choose to pay no interest if paid in full within 6, 12, 18, or 24 months. Or, pay 14.9% APR until paid in full (equal fixed monthly payments required). It is great to have options when choosing a healthcare financing company, and CareCredit provides several options, depending on your situation and needs.
Lastly, another great benefit to using CareCredit for healthcare financing is their online account management tool. On the CareCredit website, the management tool can be used to make payments, review your account, see transactions, and update personal information all online. The company will mail you, or email you, monthly statements, but members can also see their account at any time online, which is very important in this industry. In addition, they have a dedicated customer service number for cardholders and one for providers. Another resource CareCredit provides is the CareCredit Mobile App. Members can pay bills and view all the necessary information from the palm of their hand. The mobile app is currently available for both iOS and Android users.
The main drawback to using CareCredit as your healthcare financing option is that they are a just a healthcare credit card. They aren't a finance company, even though they are a branch off of Synchrony Bank. Members can't get a personal loan, the only option is the credit card. They are a healthcare credit card financing option. Even though you have multiple options within their credit card, it is the only option.
Also, CareCredit charges 14.9% for extended payment plans, while other companies give members a range depending on their credit score. Members could get a much lower rate with other companies, but CareCredit has a standard rate just for their card.
