February 22, 2017 – CareCredit, a leading provider of promotional financing for healthcare, and NextCare Holdings, Inc, one of the nation’s largest providers of urgent care and occupational medical services, have signed an agreement that offers an additional payment option for NextCare patients and more ways and locations for CareCredit cardholders to use their card. CareCredit continues to expand acceptance of its healthcare credit card program, helping patients pay for deductibles, copayments, prescriptions and out-of- pocket costs associated with primary and urgent care, while also helping practices collect payment at the time of treatment.
This new agreement allows CareCredit’s 10 million cardholders to use their CareCredit credit card to pay for out of pocket health and wellness expenses at the more than 130 NextCare clinics around the country.
“We are excited about this alliance with CareCredit from Synchrony Financial as it provides a convenient payment option for new and existing patients,” said John Julian, chief executive officer of NextCare Holdings. “This relationship aligns with our goal of meeting the needs of all patients, providing affordable, convenient, high-quality healthcare services throughout NextCare and our nationwide family of brands.”
Dave Fasoli, chief executive officer of CareCredit, added, “Our thirty-year history offering patients a flexible payment option for the care they need when they need it, is a perfect fit for NextCare’s patient-first philosophy. We offer patients a convenient way to pay for all of their expected and unexpected health, wellness and personal care expenses, and the increased utility from our growing network is an important factor behind our impressive satisfaction ratings in the industry.*”
