If you’ve been using your CareCredit Card for skin care and other services, this FAQ addresses card updates. If you are seeking a way to support your personal care needs, a CareCredit Card may be a helpful financing option for you.
Do I need to replace my original card with the new CareCredit Healthcare Card?
No. The look has changed, the card hasn’t. There’s no need to replace your original card with the new one. Both CareCredit Cards are accepted at over 150,000 enrolled providers nationwide, including New Image!
What is CareCredit?
Unlike your Visa or MasterCard, CareCredit is an exclusive credit line for healthcare services. It’s a supportive payment option offered by doctors as an alternative to consumer credit cards, cash or checks. Many patients put off beneficial treatments and procedures because they can’t afford large payments. CareCredit allows you to pay over time instead of a lump sum prior to treatment.
Have Your Healthcare Covered
Care for your health, pay over time and avoid interest. Most of our cardholders opt for shorter term plans ranging from 6-24 months, because they can make minimum interest-free monthly payments. By paying off the full amount due by the end of the promotional period, you can avoid interest all together!
Interest will only be charged to your account from the purchase date of the promotional balance, including optional charges, if the balance not paid in full by the end of the promotional period, or if you make a late payment. Minimum monthly payments are required.*
Finances Your Greater Investments
If you need more time to pay for your procedure, we offer longer programs with fixed interest. The fixed monthly payment amount is based on repayment over 24, 36, 48 or 60-month periods. Purchases of $1000 or more are eligible for a 24, 36 or 48-month offer. Purchases over $2500 are eligible for a 60-month offer. Check with your healthcare provider for CareCredit payment options.
*Required monthly payments may or may not pay off your purchase before the end of the promotional period.
Why do doctors offer CareCredit?
Offering CareCredit removes the accounts receivable responsibilities from the doctor and allows them to focus on recommending and providing the best care. It also empowers their patients to receive the treatments they need and pay in a way that fits their budget.
