Care Credit

My husband and I were recently informed that our dog would need to have surgery to repair the severely luxating patellas in both of her hind legs.  I applied for Care Credit because of the no interest/pay over time feature (as long as you make your monthly payments on time and don't default).  I was approved and am very greatful that the limit is more than enough to cover the surgery.  However, I'm not really sure how the process works after we have established the costs of the surgery and are ready to move forward.  How do I let Care Credit know which plan term (6 months, 12 months, 18 months, etc) I would like to use?  Is this something I have to discuss with the provider?

Goal Score: At least 720 across the board by June 2012

Re: Care Credit

Congrats on the Care Credit card. DH has it for the doggies, and we've been happy with it so far. The provider will be able to tell you which plan will apply for the procedure. Best wishes on a successful surgery and a speedy recovery for your dog.

Ditto the speedy recovery for your valued family member!

 

Ditto also IME on the CareCredit payment options. I have yet to find a provider that accepts the card who didn't offer some form of deferred interest plan. Minimum payments are pretty low, too. So long as you PIF before the no-interest period ends, it's all good Smiley Happy

Re: Care Credit

I too am new to Care Credit and have found it very easy. The provider usually tells you what plan to be on and as long as you pay off the balance before the "promotional period" ends, you're all good. It's a great plan to have if you dont have the money up front.

Re: Care Credit

I recently had to use a CareCredit account for my baby girl (dog)

The vet was offering 18 months on anything over $1500... Care Credit was also awsome because her first hospital stay was around $1700 and then she had to go back in for fluid in her lungs 2 days later and that was only like $500 but when the statement came, both transactions were under the no interest for 18 months.

Re: Care Credit

Thanks for the input, everyone!  I'll speak to my provider to see what options are available.  I was hoping that surgery wouldn't be necessary until after Christmas, but it looks like we need to get it taken care of pretty quickly.  Poor girl.

Congratulation, for the LOVE you and yours have shown to your animal, and don't worry about the options your provider will share what they are signed up for -- just this morning I had simi major surgery (dental) and was prepared to put the charges on my NFCU Visa Signature Card (12.99) and was oftered the option of 12 mos. 0%.  After checking the forum for Care Credit, I decided to move forward and while in the chair the rep. said "congratulation you are approved".  I later found out the CL was for 5k, 12 mos. no % and much more than needed . . .
