CareCredit serves as a health care credit card that allows patients to finance many elective treatments and procedures, including those for cosmetic surgery, dermatology procedures, dentistry, LASIK and other vision care, hearing care and veterinary treatment for pets. This financing option allows account holders to make monthly payments as opposed securing cash funding up front for wellness needs not covered by standard insurance. Patients must use providers who are on the CareCredit network, but the company allows patients to refer their provider if needed. Currently, over 175,000 providers offer CareCredit options.Learn more about Personal Loans
