ADA Business Resources extends endorsement of CareCredit
October 25, 2016
ADA Business Resources announced Oct. 20 that it has signed a seven-year extension of its endorsement of CareCredit as the provider of patient financing for the American Dental Association's members. CareCredit provides flexible financing options for families who may not be covered by insurance.
ADA Business Resources has endorsed CareCredit since 2001.
The availability of financing can play an integral role in a patient's decision-making process regarding health care needs, according CareCredit. A CareCredit study found that more dental patients (67 percent) research financing options than the procedure itself (58 percent). The study also found 49 percent of dental patients were very likely or extremely likely to apply for or use the CareCredit credit card if the cost of dental care increased to $1,000.
"We are honored to have had the privilege to serve ADA members for over 15 years," said Doug Hammond, senior vice president and general manager at CareCredit. "Research shows that dental patients want and need financing options, and it is our ongoing commitment to assist members and their teams by helping patients access care."
ADA Business Resources evaluates the products and services they endorse against five key criteria: they must solve a proven member need, be an industry leader, hold a higher service standard, offer ADA members preferred pricing and support the ADA's mission.
