Orem, UT (PRWEB) May 04, 2014
Curve Dental, developers of cloud-based dental software, today announced that participating providers can offer and initiate the application process for the CareCreditSM healthcare credit card directly within the Curve Dental program.
The CareCredit healthcare credit card can be used to manage out-of-pocket healthcare expenses with more than 175,000 enrolled providers. When seeking dental treatment, some patients may choose CareCredit as a payment option for certain expenses not covered by insurance or to bridge situations when desired care exceeds insurance coverage.
“Many Curve Dental customers are also enrolled with CareCredit,” said Ian Zipursky, president and COO of Curve Dental. “This integration simplifies the application process, providing an improved patient experience.”
The CareCredit application icon is located in the recommended treatment area of the Curve Dental software, where the doctor reviews treatment and payment options with the patient. At the patient’s request, the CareCredit application can be completed and submitted within minutes. Patients receive credit decisions almost instantly and are given their account number and available credit so they have an immediate way to pay for care.
“This enhancement is a significant benefit to our customers and their patients,” said Zipursky. “Curve Dental is delighted to work with CareCredit on providing a more seamless experience within our software program.”
