CareCredit lowers minimum on extended payment plan

Jan. 10, 2005
Patients can now pay their portion of treatment costs (from $1,000 to $25,000) with a number of low-interest payment options.

In an effort to help more patients get the dentistry they want and need -- and make the convenience of longer term payment plans more accessible -- CareCredit has lowered the treatment fee eligibility on its low interest Extended Payment Plans to $1,000. With the new lower treatment fee minimum, patients can now pay their portion of treatment costs (from $1,000 to $25,000) with either CareCredit's 12 Month No Interest Payment Plan or, if they desire more time, the 24, 36, or 48 Month Low Interest payment options.

As with many purchases over $500, patients are often not concerned with the total cost of their dental care, but how to fit payments into their monthly budget. CareCredit's Extended Payment Plans give patients a convenient financial solution that lets them start care immediately -- then pay over time with fixed low monthly payments. With no up-front costs, annual fees, or pre-payment penalties CareCredit's Extended Payment Plans are ideal for cosmetic or reconstructive procedures.

CareCredit is at work in more than 45,000 practices and has been used by over 3 million patients. With innovations like instant online applications and Pre-Approval, CareCredit continues its commitment to making it easier for patients to get treatment.
