You finally decide to get that laser resurfacing or liposuction done on that one area that’s bothered you forever.
So you set up your consultation with Dr. Popp. He answers your questions and outlines possible options.
And you realize you can’t afford to fully pay for your procedure on the day you receive it.
Care Credit may cover your procedure
Well, you’re in luck. Dr. Popp’s office offers a financing option called Care Credit.
Care Credit is available to those in the U.S who qualify. For example, you can get Care Credit for dental work. Some people also use it for minor surgical procedures, as well as the bigger ones.
Once you complete and process your application, you’ll be notified how much you are qualified to borrow.
“The company pays us directly on the day of the procedure,” said Dr. Popp. “They charge us a percentage that we pay.”
How this payment option works
He said doctors can participate at different levels. Care Credit offers them three plans — three months, six months and 12 months – none of which charge interest:
Dr. Popp offers his patients the “6 months with no interest” option for Care Credit.
“So before you come in for, say, a breast augmentation, go online to Care Credit and apply. If you qualify, you can get the procedure’s full amount.”
“On the day of the surgery, Care Credit transfers the money into our account, minus the percentage we owe them,” he said.
Care Credit is the company you pay for the loan over whatever time period is set agreed upon.
At Dr. Popp’s office, about 10 to 20 percent of his patients use the Care Credit option.
