Payment options

PAYMENT OPTIONS & INFORMATION
 

Clients are required to pay in full for all services received on the day they are provided, or upon discharge for in-patients. Payments may be made by cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.

If your animal will stay with us for at least one night, they are considered an in-patient. Before they are admitted, we require your approval of a cost estimate. Payment in-full is expected at the time of the patient’s release from the hospital. While Cape Veterinary Hospital does not directly finance client accounts, financing options are available with approved credit through Care Credit & Scratch Pay.

FINANCING WITH CARE CREDIT & SCRATCH PAY

 

Cape Veterinary Hospital offers convenient financing options through Care Credit & Scratch Pay 

Care Credit
CareCredit helps you pay for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses for you, your family, and even your pets! Once you are approved, you can use it again and again to help manage health and wellness costs not covered by insurance. Care Credit is interest-free for 6 months on a purchase over $200

Scratch Pay
Depending on the payment plan you have selected, you either pay Scratchpay in 90 days with no interest, or in monthly installments over a period of 12 or 24 months with interest based on the rate you qualify for.

PET INSURANCE AS AN OPTION
 

Cape Veterinary Hospital offers the most advanced treatments for ailing animals, and we understand that covering the cost of medical and surgical services can sometimes be overwhelming.

Many owners consider pet health insurance, and several companies provide plan options for animals. Most policies are established as reimbursement plans, which means that you pay your bill for veterinary services and are reimbursed by the insurance company according to the provisions of your policy.

If you are interested in learning more about pet insurance, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) provides information and links to a number of pet insurance companies on their website.

Social Media – Crowdfunding – NJ Based Financial Assistance
  • Youcaring
  • Go Fund Me
  • Plumfund
  • Pet Chance

Tips for Crowdfunding
  1. Explain what this means to you: Share that importance in your campaign page to help your audience connect emotionally.
  2. Include images that make the condition clear: Profiles with non-graphic photos that make it clear a pet is hurt or in need tend to raise funds faster.
  3. Share, share, share – on Facebook and email: On average, shares by people and organizations who know the pet personally raise around $500 per share!
  4. Gather your “team”: Be sure to ask your close network to share the campaign on your behalf.
  5. Push hard at the beginning-and end-of a campaign: Letting your audience know that a campaign is closing, and they only have a limited time to help can pull people off the fences to help.
