Unlike traditional credit cards, the Citi Health Card use is limited to medical payments with participating practices. Citi Bank partners with offices nationwide and its online resources include a provider search form giving clients a list of eligible doctors and clinics in an area, according to citicards.com.
After agreeing on a payment plan, patients must meet a minimum payment each month for the duration of the contract. If consistently paid on time, interest charges don’t apply to the loan. The card works best for those who know they can meet the monthly payments and benefit from the structure of a payment plan, as reported by U.S. News. The same report states that doctors benefit from the Citi Health Card as their offices receive the entire payment upfront for treatment, and processing for recurring treatments normally takes a few business days, if not cleared immediately.Learn more about Health Insurance
