Because of the increasing popularity of elective procedures such as LASIK, more patient financial options are needed. Your patients are looking for easy ways to pay for these procedures - and CareCredit offers several convenient plans they can choose from. If your payment policy is limited to cash or major credit cards, you may actually be limiting your refractive surgery volume. Even if most of your patients currently pay by cash or credit card, your practice could be treating many more patients if you offered CareCredit. So give your patients another payment option and they can save their cash for other purchases.
You can get started today by calling 800-300-3046, and soon you'll be receiving payment at time of treatment and increasing refractive surgery volume. Or get started by completing our online request form and a representative will contact you to complete your enrollment process.
CareCredit is a win, win, win solution for you, your practice, and your patients!

Because the financial relationship is between your patients and CareCredit, you don’t have to worry about delayed payment or defaults.
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.
Hundreds of thousands of patients nationwide use CareCredit and appreciate the proven benefits such as low, flexible monthly payments, no initial cash outlay, and no initial or annual account holder fees.
According to a recent credit card industry survey, the average person has only $300 of credit available on their consumer credit cards.

CareCredit helps your patients schedule their refractive procedures today.
