CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that you can use to pay for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses for yourself and your family, pets included.

You may be able to get interest-free promotional financing for certain purchases, depending on where you are and what you’re buying. There are 6, 12, 18, and 24-month offers.

Take note that with these offers, if you don’t pay off the entire balance by the due date you’ll be charged interest on the entire balance going all the way back to the purchase date. You’ll have a minimum payment each month that may not cover your entire purchase cost, so divide the total balance by the number of months to figure out the right monthly payment. Consider dividing by one fewer month to make sure it’s paid off on time.

To apply, you just need to select a doctor or business, or describe how you plan on using the card.

CareCredit is accepted at over 200 healthcare providers nationwide, however not all offer promotional financing.
