Providers receive payment within two days, helping to accelerate cash flow for the practice. According to a recent InstaMed report *, 74% of providers saw an increase in patient responsibility for healthcare payments last year. With Pay My Provider, cardholders have the flexibility to use their CareCredit credit card to pay for post-care balances. Available at www.carecredit.com/pay, Pay My Provider gives cardholders a convenient and secure online payment option to pay outstanding balances after they leave the provider's office. Patients can choose from the available financing options, and submit a payment directly to the provider using their CareCredit credit card. ** "Pay My Provider is an immediate solution for the changing healthcare payment landscape," says Dave Fasoli, CEO, CareCredit. "This service is a direct result of cardholder and provider feedback and the need to continually evolve the utility of the CareCredit card to pay for services and care received after the cardholder leaves the provider's office."
