Care Credit?

Has anyone applied for a Care Credit line of credit recently? If so what was the outcome & scores if you don't mind? Also, know which CR the pull?

 

 

Thanks,

Brandy

Re: Care Credit?

cool beans!!! I want to apply with them for a procedure I need  but dont want to be denied & waste an inquiry, as I will be needing a decent CL like yours, I hear the approval rate is higher if the doctor calls for you or should I apply myself via their website, or do you think it matters?

Re: Care Credit?

i applied online, myself.

 

i have heard that if the procedure will exceed your CL, the doctor can call & request that they give you a higher CL, & that it typically gets approved (within reason, i'm sure).  YMMV.

Re: Care Credit?

Thanks so much Laz really appreciate all the advice I want to apply so bad my EQ  is 636 I just want to have all of my ducks in a row I guess.... i was denied a year ago  due to high util. I think, but also had a few baddies which a couple are still there but its looking better for me since opening a couple new TL's and recent positive payment history but Im still a little nervous is your report clean?

Re: Care Credit?

well, your score is better than mine...i don't know how recent your baddies are, though.

 

no, my report is not clean.  i have a charged-off loan for about $2200, a $500 verizon charge-off, & the CA who is trying to collect the verizon charge-off all reporting on my EQ.  all from 2004.

Re: Care Credit?

I was instantly approved for a $3500 CL a couple of Months ago. right after the page where they show your CL it says if  you need a higher limit you must call within 24 hours.
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
