CareCredit and GE Capital:
CareCredit was established in 1987, when the card was initially offered to dentists to help their patients pay for dental implants. Over the next two decades, insurance benefits remained static while technology rapidly advanced and the cost of dentistry increased, making CareCredit an option for both general and cosmetic treatments. CareCredit became part of GE Capital in 2002. GE Capital has been providing consumer finance programs since the 1930s when it was established to help families finance appliances. Since then, GE Capital has grown to hundreds of billions of assets and is a leading provider of credit services to consumers, retailers and auto dealers in more than 50 countries around the world. GE Capital, based in Norwalk, Conn., offers a range of financial products, including private label credit cards, personal loans, bank cards, auto loans and leases, mortgages, corporate travel and purchasing cards, debt consolidation, and credit insurance. CareCredit is part of the Sales Finance unit of GE Capital, which provides private label credit card programs, marketing, installment lending, service contracts and financial services for national and regional retailers and providers in more than 20 industries including: home improvement, outdoor power equipment, powersports, sporting goods, automotive, consumer electronics and appliances, furniture, floor covering, music, jewelry, and health care. - GE Capital

CareCredit was born out of the need of patients to have an efficient, practical and flexible method of payment. The company and the value it offers healthcare professionals in allowing them to focus on patient care, has matured into the leading patient financing program in America.
The company was founded in 1987 to answer the challenges of a changing healthcare industry. With health insurance companies covering fewer procedures and the sharp rise in technological advancements, patient ability to accept recommended treatment plans was becoming significantly limited. The CareCredit program provides the doctor-patient relationship with a win-win situation: the doctor receives full treatment fees and the patient receives immediate, recommended treatment with the ability to pay over time.
Doctors and CareCredit:
A doctor has a primary concern which is always the welfare of the patient. CareCredit allows healthcare professionals to concentrate on patient care and eliminates the burden of invoicing the patient. Although quality care is a first priority for the doctor, payment can be a significant concern for the patient. The practice receives payment right away, significantly improving cash flow; and the patient can finance the procedure and pay CareCredit over time.
Patients and CareCredit:
By providing patients with several payment options, practices can help patients get the procedure they need or want. Top practice management consultants suggest presenting the CareCredit card as a payment option along with cash and other bank cards. CareCredit gives patients a flexible, convenient payment plan when they prefer not to pay with cash or a major credit card. A minimum purchase amount may be required for promotional plans longer than 6 months in duration. Interest may be charged to accounts from the purchase date if the promotional balance, including optional charges, is not paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months or if cardholders make late payments. Minimum monthly payments are required. On some promotions, if payments are not paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months, interest accrued may be assessed from the purchase date. If an account goes 60 days past due, promotions may be terminated early and accrued interest may be billed. It\'s important for cardholders to understand the terms of each purchase on the card and make payments on time as agreed.
