EarQ has teamed up with CareCredit to allow its team of national providers to offer their patients the opportunity to apply for financing that can help enable them to afford the hearing devices they need and deserve.
CareCredit, a part of GE Capital, offers healthcare financing for consumers through a network of over 150,000 providers. CareCredit is an application-based healthcare credit card that can be used as a consolidated payment option for certain medical expenses not covered by insurance or to bridge situations when desired care exceeds insurance coverage.
“We are so excited to extend this CareCredit option to our membership and, ultimately, their patients,” said Ed Keller, president of EarQ. “Unfortunately, hearing technology is not always covered by insurance, and that can prevent many people from attaining the devices they need. Through CareCredit, we can help remove that barrier and provide patients greater peace of mind as they select the best hearing technology for their lifestyle.”
