CareCredit: Financing for Vet Expenses
CareCredit is one of the nation’s largest health, wellness, and beauty credit cards. Millions of families use this card to finance treatments and procedures not typically covered by health insurance, including pet care. Germantown Vet and over 200,000 other enrolled providers and retail locations accept CareCredit.
Unlike ordinary credit cards, CareCredit offers 0% interest on financed purchases of $200 or more when paid in full within 6, 12, 18, or 24 months. Longer term financing is also available for more expensive purchases (interest rates apply).
CareCredit helps you afford the healthcare your beloved animal needs so he can live a long, happy, and healthy life. Use your card at Germantown Vet to pay for everything from routine check-ups and prescription pet food to emergency care, such as surgical procedures and tooth extractions.
How CareCredit Can Benefit Pet Owners in Germantown, MD
There’s no greater struggle for a pet parent than looking at your sick or injured fur baby and trying to weigh treatment costs against your household finances. CareCredit is there to help you pay off those large expenses more easily! Consider becoming a CareCredit cardholder if you want to enjoy these benefits:
- Peace of mind: You never know when an unexpected pet healthcare cost could strike. Financing expensive procedures with CareCredit prevents you from having to dip into your emergency funds.
- Finance what pet insurance doesn’t cover: Perhaps you assume you don’t need CareCredit because you already have pet insurance. However, you still have a deductible to meet, and you don’t know what your pet insurance policy might not cover. For instance, if your dog contracts heartworm because you failed to administer monthly heartworm medication, your insurance provider might consider this a preventable illness and deny coverage. CareCredit lets you finance unexpected out-of-pocket costs, so you can give your pet the care he needs, when he needs it, even if pet insurance doesn’t cover it.
- Budget pet healthcare costs: Many pet owners become excited when they learn that CareCredit provides a way to finance hundreds or even thousands of dollars in pet care costs with 0% interest for up to 24 months. If you need more time to pay off pet medical bills, you may qualify for a repayment period of up to 60 months (with interest). This means you’re never left with a pet bill you can’t pay.
- Use your card for yourself and your family: CareCredit isn’t limited to veterinary financing. You can use it again and again to finance all sorts of medical treatments for you and your family, from LASIK eye surgery to cosmetic procedures to dental services not covered by your health insurance – all at 0% interest when paid in full within 24 months!
