The days of requiring your patients to present their actual healthcare card at the end of an office visit are coming to an end. CareCredit, a service from Synchrony Financial, now has a proprietary digital card that allows cardholders to access their account and make a mobile payment. It’s a flexible and easy way for patients to pay through any accepted mobile wallet or existing point-of-sale method. The “agnostic” card doesn’t require any new hardware or mobile app download; cardholders simple access the site mysynchrony.com/carecredit.
Piloted in 2014, the digital card establishes a secure customer enrollment and authentication process, offering a unique mobile device positioning through the “add to home screen” feature, explains Kendra Larsen, Consumer Marketing Manager, Strategic Initiatives for CareCredit. After the initial set-up, the digital card is accessible by entering a PIN number during the enrollment process.”The CareCredit card helps curtail the time it takes to do an account number lookup and enables providers to quickly process patient transactions,” Larsen says. “For patients, the digital card eliminates the need to bring their card with them at the time of care.” There is no training required, but your staff will still need to continue to check two forms of ID. CareCredit works with all third-party digital wallets including ApplePay, Samsung Pay, MCX (CurrentC).
