Our hospital sees clients that come from all socioeconomic levels. And from my experience, even “traditionally credit-worthy” clients have been turned down for Care Credit, and I love being able to offer a payment option for those people that are truly payment worthy, even if by today’s standards the “powers-that-be” deem them not creditworthy. We have extended VetBilling services to so many people that really do just make ends meet from paycheck to paycheck; however their furry child is one of the ends that they account for in their paycheck.
I love being able to adjust the down payment and set terms that we BOTH agree on and are comfortable with. Getting them involved in the treatment *and the financing* plans really strengthens the bond between us as vet and pet owner, and that creates a heightened level of accountability and responsibility that they feel for the payments. This has been my experience. Honestly, these are hardworking people that appreciate the extended trust and faith, and they have yet to let me down. You have nothing to lose, start VetBilling services, choose your cases carefully at first and then you will see it is so valuable to your clients and patients.
