Chase Health Advance exits health care financing

CareCredit offers VIP treatment to ease transition

In the wake of Chase Health Advance’s March 14 announcement that the company is exiting health care financing, CareCredit is stepping up to help dental practices adjust to the transition.

CareCredit is the only patient financing program endorsed for ADA members by ADA Business Resources. As the most widely-accepted provider of deferred and reduced-interest credit card plan options in dentistry, CareCredit immediately reached out to ADA members via fax, email and FedEx packages to offer free re-training; practice supplies (including patient brochures, applications and display materials); a special VIP enrollment offer; and any other support practices or cardholders might need.

There is a need for health care payment options as advances in technology and procedures create new options for care and the gap in insurance coverage widens, said Dave Fasoli, president of CareCredit.

“Over the past 25 years, CareCredit has been relied upon by doctors and patients to be there, in every economic climate,” Mr. Fasoli. “Today, more than 90,000 dental practices trust us to provide the financial options patients want and appreciate, so they can immediately proceed with recommended dental care.”

ADA Business Resources has endorsed CareCredit since 2001 because the company continually meets strict criteria for financial stability, customer service and program quality.

For more information, practices currently enrolled with CareCredit can call 1-800-859-9975 (option 1, then 6). To enroll with CareCredit’s VIP offer, call 1-800-800-5110.
