Using CareCredit for Primary & Urgent Care Financing
Whether you're scheduling a checkup for your kids, fighting a cold or flu and need a virtual doctor visit, or making an unexpected visit to urgent care, CareCredit can help make paying for treatment and high deductibles easier and affordable.*
Here are just some of the procedures that you can pay for with your CareCredit healthcare credit card.
Primary Care & Urgent Care
- Family practice
- General practitioner
- Urgent care
- Virtual doctor visits
You can use CareCredit to cover high deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance, and to pay for treatments and procedures not covered by insurance. With CareCredit, you and your family can get the care you need now with the option to pay monthly over time.
Promotional financing options are not available at all retail locations that accept CareCredit and standard account terms will apply to such purchases.
Unexpected doesn't have to mean unplanned for
Out-of-pocket costs for primary or urgent care can include deductibles (the amount you pay for services before your insurance pays) and copays (a fixed amount you pay for covered service).
With CareCredit you can pay for these primary and urgent care costs and other portions not covered by insurance.* Ask your doctor if they accept the CareCredit healthcare credit card.

Testimonials and Reviews
As a single mother of 4 kids, who all play sports, injuries are something that is expected. CareCredit has allowed me to have peace of mind knowing I will be able to cover those medical expenses. I love knowing the card is in my wallet and that I will be able to pay on the spot, as if I was paying cash ... I breathe easier and love that I'm able to pay without a worry. Thank you CareCredit
My son fell on some ice and broke his wrist while away at college. We were told that it would cost over $1000 up front before the surgeon would even touch his wrist. CareCredit allowed us to not worry about how we were going to move forward. He had the surgery as soon as he was able and we were able to make monthly payments that fit in our budget!
Being a mother of five children, CareCredit has allowed my children and I to receive the necessary medical services without putting even a more financial burden or strain on us ...
2016 was the year I would celebrate my 30th birthday. 5 months prior to my birthday celebration I had severely broken my ankle in 3 different locations. I had to have two surgeries and was non-weight-bearing for the upcoming 5 months. CareCredit allowed me to pay for several medical necessities throughout my long recovery. I was able to recover in time to celebrate my 30th. Thank you, CareCredit.
