We all have dreams about treatments or procedures that would enhance our health and wellbeing. But sometimes these dreams are hard to fit into our budgets. That’s where CareCredit® comes in. You can use a CareCredit card to cover the deductible on health, wellness and beauty services – or to pay for treatments and procedures not covered by your insurance plan. 
And CareCredit financing can cover a wide range of healthcare needs, from dermatology to dental services. In addition, you can use the card for treatments at day spas, sleep centers, medical spas, weight loss programs and more. (Even animal and pet care services are covered.) In short, CareCredit, from Synchrony, can help make your health, wellness and beauty dreams possible today.
It Started With a Smile
In 1987, Ralph Stern, who owned a company that made dental implants, founded the private label credit card that grew to be CareCredit. Stern wanted more people to be able to benefit from the then-new dental implant technology and get the care they needed. Plus, Stern and his team realized his company could do a better job of billing patients than a dentist could. This would allow dentists and health care providers more time to focus on providing services.
The company was a huge success and it now serves chiropractors, spas, cosmetic and LASIK surgeons, veterinarians, hair replacement specialists–to name a few. Today, 11 million cardholders use the card at more than 200,000 health-and-beauty locations.
How CareCredit Works
CareCredit helps people get the care they want for themselves and their families. With this innovative card, you can get dental work done, have vision or cosmetic procedures, get care for a family pet and much more. And you won’t have to put off treatments or appointments.
