Free for All
COSTA MESA, CA., NOVEMBER 2008 — CareCredit, North America’s leading patient payment program, is making available to enrolled practices a FREE Customized Financial Policy which incorporates the best techniques from leading practice management consultants.
In today’s challenging economy, an effective financial policy is critical to success and can benefit the practice and patients. Practices can more clearly communicate the patient’s financial responsibilities and payment options, helping more patients get the dentistry they want and need by eliminating “fear of cost,” confusion and miscommunication. CareCredit tapped into a comprehensive network of practice management consultants and compiled the best techniques to develop the Financial Policy – a FREE value-added service for practices that offer the program. Dentists and their teams can go online to www.carecredit.com/FinancialPolicy, answer a short questionnaire about their insurance and payment option preferences and instantly download and print two documents customized to their practice: the Written Financial Policy and the Patient Payment Agreement. “One of the most critical dialogues that happens between patients and the dental team revolves around fees, financial responsibilities and payment options,” said David Fasoli, president. “Consultants agree that when a practice has a written Financial Policy, this discussion is easier. And now, dental teams can create a Financial Policy based on proven techniques using our online tool.”
For 21 years, CareCredit has been making it easy for patients to get the dentistry they need. Today, CareCredit is at work in more than 110,000 practices in North America and is used by over 7 million patients. CareCredit is exclusively selected for their members by most state and national dental associations, including ADA Member AdvantageSM, AGD, AAOMS, and AAP.
