Alternatives to CareCredit?
July 15, 2009 2:26 PM Subscribe
For reasons I don't (yet) fully understand, Care Credit has refused to extend me any credit whatsoever towards a year-long set of (embarrassing) medical procedures that will end up totalling in the neighborhood of $30,000 US.
What viable alternatives to Care Credit exist for financing expensive and drawn-out medical procedures?

More details: Single, no dependents. Only debt of any kind is a 4-year auto loan, which has never been late, and will be paid off in a little over 2 years. I rent. My annual income approaches six figures. I am in no danger of missing work due to the procedures (they're all outpatient).
I just don't understand why I would be rejected for this line of credit (even in this economy) and am hopeful that mefites will be able to recommend some alternative. Thanks in advance.
(As an aside: I'd really like to avoid speculation on what work needs done - the whole situation is one I find dreadfully embarassing, and the question isn't about the procedures needed, merely what alternatives exist to finance them. Thanks.)
