Costa Mesa, CA-In an effort to retain patients who need to finance their refractive surgery, CareCredit, a division of GE Consumer Finance, is offering 95% approval rates through its CareCreditPlus program.

The program approves more patients than most-including patients with less-than-perfect credit who might not otherwise afford refractive surgery, said Tony Seymour, vice president of client development for CareCredit.

According to the company, an independent survey found financial concerns were the primary reason patients failed to attend their scheduled appointment. The program is designed to be easy for practice administrators to integrate into their practices and expands the client base.
