Care Credit

Once you are approved, you can use it again and again to help manage health costs. CareCredit is different from a regular credit card—there is a shorter-term financing option of six months with no interest on purchases/services of $200 or more when you pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. Otherwise, interest is charged from the original purchase date.
