Hospital Payment Policy
To ensure the highest quality of veterinary care provided to all of our clientele, the Kodiak Veterinary Clinic requires payment when services are rendered. Veterinary businesses, such as the Kodiak Veterinary Clinic, are not funded by any outside government agencies, non-profit organizations, or donations from the public. Collecting payment when services are provided guarantees our ability to keep the hospital stocked with appropriate medications and supplies, well equipped with necessary diagnostic tools, and staffed with an enthusiastic and passionate team of dedicated employees.
The Kodiak Veterinary Clinic accepts Cash, Checks(w/current drivers license number), Money Orders, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover Card and CareCredit as forms of payment. We do recognize that urgent care issues and/or emergencies arise unexpectedly, and can cause financial hardship. Therefore we do offer financing via CareCredit. CareCredit is a personal line of credit accepted at several medical providers, including veterinarians, optometrists, and dentists. To apply, you can either log on to www.carecredit.com to fill out an on-line application, or you may complete an application at our office. You will need your current driver’s license and a debit or credit card with a mastercard or visa logo. Within a few minutes, you may be approved for the financing you need.
We offer a few different payment plans via CareCredit, including a very popular 6 month interest free option, along with several long term payment options that does include monthly interest fees. The payment options are as follows:
- 6 month interest free plan (no minimum balance required.) Make required monthly payments to have balance paid off within 6 months.
- 24, 36, or 48 Month payment plans (minimum balance of $1000.) Make monthly minimum payments to have balance paid off within the terms of the agreement, including all applicable interest fees.
Due to the difficulty of providing accurate estimates for potential veterinary treatments over the phone for traumatic injury or illness, our staff can provide simple estimates for the necessary office visit, including the physical examination of the patient, and consultation with the veterinarian. Once the physical examination has been completed, the veterinarian will gladly provide the client with all of the different options available for treatment, and the estimated costs for each treatment plan upon request. If the patient is to be admitted into the hospital, a deposit equaling 100% of the estimated cost for treatment is expected at time of admission.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding payment, please do not hesitate to contact our office. The Kodiak Veterinary Clinic thanks you for your patronage, and looks forward to assisting you with your future veterinary needs.
