I just applied a couple of days ago for an upcoming procedure next month and I was instantly approved for $6100. I'm not sure yet which CRA they used because I have yet to receive an inquiry notification. As soon as I know I will update.

Previously CareCredit was the odd duck, pulling EQ when all other GE-backed cards I'm aware of pulled TU.
Now that has changed at least somewhat.
Personally I think it's moot, if you have medical expenses that care credit can cover, just go apply. It's not like you need pristine history to obtain it, 12 inquiries vs. 1 *shrug*. Finances > FICO in this case, and another inquiry on EQ ain't going to hurt you much if at all if you make that lucky number 13 statistically.

I live in AL. Carecredit pulled EQ when I applied for the card in September. I applied for a CLI in May and they pulled TU
