Which card should be used for medical bills to get the best rewards or cashback?

Please advise~~~I have FIA 2% and Cap1 QS 1.5%.

Not sure whether there are cards which give more on medical bills.

If carrying a balance, the rewards are moot.

 

If not, I don't know of anything above 2%.

 

CareCredit has deferred interest plans, where if you pay everything in a fixed time, you avoid interest.  If you don't, then the interest is retroactive.

Thanks.

I see there are cards for categories like Pharmacies, Utilities. Strange there is no one for Medi bills.

Some travel cards can give you more than 2% in value, depending on how you use them.

Depending on who does the processing for medical bills, some MAY be coded as a charity (like a non-profit hospital, doctors office, or clinic).

In that case, I believe us banks cash+ give 5% and Huntington bank gives 3% if you choose the charity as your category. Otherwise, go with a straight 2% cash back card. If you're a GM lover there's the GM card through capital one for 5% on first $5000 and 2% after, however the rewards can only be applied toward a new car. Like some other posters mentioned, if you have a favorite travel card that you know you can get more than 2x value per point on, may be a very useful venture!
