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
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
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.
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.
At Cape Veterinary Hospital, we understand that caring for your companion can sometimes be expensive.
