We all know that cost is one of the biggest reasons that patients often don’t move forward with the purchase of hearing technology. We also know that financing plays a major role in making comprehensive hearing-health-care products and services more accessible to patients. If patients can fit the cost into their lifestyle and monthly budget, they may be more likely to move forward with purchasing the technology they want and need to help them live a connected life. The CareCredit prequalification process makes it even easier for patients to see if they prequalify for the CareCredit credit card with no impact to their credit bureau score. So, providers now have an opportunity to break down yet another barrier that patients may have and increase access to hearing technology.
There are several ways for patients to see if they prequalify for CareCredit:
- Through the practice’s PMS system
- Patients can inquire on their own using a Custom Link and QR Code
- Through the CareCredit Provider Center
Prequalification is a great option for patients who are interested in learning if they are likely to be approved without impacting their credit bureau score or individuals who may be curious about whether they are eligible for the CareCredit credit card but are not yet ready to commit.
