Yes. We take care of the billing and collecting so valuable time can be better spent on other important responsibilities such as patient care and developing patient relationships. We provide the office staff with training, all the tools needed to present the program to your patients, and all the materials to quickly and efficiently process applications.
For over 25 years, healthcare providers have been offering CareCredit's innovative payment options backed by GE Capital. In fact, more than 150,000 enrolled practices nationwide use CareCredit.
Within two business days, your fees are electronically deposited into your practice's bank account, less a minimal processing fee.
Simply have the patient complete a short application. Then, your office staff sends in the necessary information via phone, or by using the online application to our credit center, which is open 7 days a week, 16 hours a day. Within minutes, or seconds if using the online application, a line of credit is granted to qualified applicants. Your office staff can then process charges to the patient's account immediately. It's that simple.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA") became effective in April 2003 and protects private information that your patients share with you and any "Business Associate" of yours. You are not required to have a Business Associate contract with CareCredit because the patient financing program typically does not include the exchange of patient health related information. CareCredit does take steps to ensure that any information about your patients is protected and used only for the purposes of the CareCredit program.
When you enroll in CareCredit, your office receives the best support in hearing care. CareCredit provides your staff members with a personalized orientation, which includes tips on how to present financial options to patients and helpful presentation tools. Your practice also receives all the ongoing supplies you'll need, free of charge.
More than 150,000 enrolled healthcare providers have made CareCredit their practice's payment option. Their patients appreciate the proven benefits such as low, flexible monthly payments, no initial cash outlay, and no initial or annual account holder fees.
Major credit cards may be a limited payment option for more comprehensive care and technology. According to a recent credit card industry survey, the average person has only $300 of credit available on their consumer credit cards. Visa and MasterCard may be limited payment options for care fees of several hundred dollars or more. With CareCredit, your patients have a separate line of credit that allows them to accept comprehensive care. Plus, they can schedule their care immediately.
