Payment Policy & Pet Health Insurance

What are accepted payments?

 

Payments are due at the time of service. Payments accepted are CareCredit, cash, check, and card.

 

What is CareCredit?

 

CareCredit is different from a regular credit card.

Use it to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by medical insurance, and special financing options are available that you may not be able to get with other cards.

Pay for health, and wellness care at over 225,000 enrolled providers across the nation. Once you've applied, you can use it again and again at any location that accepts CareCredit.

With shorter term financing options of 6, 12, 18 or 24 months no interest is charged on purchases of $200 or more when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. If you do not, interest is charged from the original purchase date.*

What is Pet Health Insurance?

 

Payment is required to Timbercrest Veterinary at time of service, but expense may be submitted to pet health insurance companies for possible reimbursement.

Pet health insurance provides a financial safety net for unexpected veterinary expenses. With insurance, you can focus on giving your pet the best care possible, instead of focusing on the cost of treatment.

More and more pet owners are utilizing pet health insurance for their beloved pets. With proper coverage, pet owners can better afford the highest standard of care they want for their special family members.

Pet health insurance has been around for a long time. There are many companies that currently provide health insurance and many different options for policies.

Timbercrest has seen an increase in the number of clients using these insurance policies. The best time to purchase insurance is when your pet is young, but it may benefit your pet at any age.

When you use pet health insurance, you pay your invoice first. Then we assist you in completing your claim form. You receive reimbursement from the company after you submit the completed claim. Our staff is happy to make copies of your veterinary records and provide information so you may complete and submit your insurance forms.
