What is CareCredit?
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed for your dental needs. It's a way to pay for the costs of many treatments and procedures and allows you to make convenient monthly payments. For complete details of healthcare financing terms, please review the CareCredit account agreement within the application.
How is CareCredit different from my other bank cards?
CareCredit extends special financing offers that you can't get when using a Visa or MasterCard to pay for dental care with Dr. Wolfson, an enrolled provider. With shorter term financing options of 6, 12, 18 or 24 months no interest is charged on purchases of $200 or more when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. If you do not, interest is charged from the original purchase date**.
For complete details, see the CareCredit account agreement within your application.
I'm not sure I want another credit card. Why do I want CareCredit?
CareCredit helps you pay for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses for you, your family, and even your pets! Once you are approved, you can use it again and again* to help you manage health, wellness and beauty costs not covered by insurance.
