CareCredit enhances plan options

Options introduced to combat cost, the top concern cited by patients for declining cosmetic procedures.

COSTA MESA, California--CareCredit, a leading North America patient payment program, is adding a new 60-month Extended Payment Plan option, has introduced an 18-month No Interest Payment Plan option, and is reducing the minimum treatment fee on all No Interest Plans to $300.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's North American Survey: The State of Cosmetic Dentistry, the demand for cosmetic procedures has grown approximately 12.5 percent in the past 5 years, and 79 percent of dentists anticipate this growth will continue.

Cost was the top concern dentists cited as the reason patients decline cosmetic procedures. To meet this increasing need, CareCredit has expanded their existing 24-, 36-, and 48-month Extended Payment Plan options to now include a 60-month plan. Both the 60-month and the 18-month plans help patients accept treatment by providing them with even lower monthly payment alternatives.

In addition, practices were asking for lower treatment thresholds for the 3-, 6-, 12-, and 18-month No Interest Payment Plans. Now patients with a treatment fee of as little as $300 can take advantage of all of CareCredit's No Interest Payment Plans.

With the new lower minimum of $300, more patients will enjoy the convenience of financing the procedures they want and need with lower payments that will fit into their monthly budget.
