Patient financing provider CareCredit has signed a multi-year agreement with Athletico Physical Therapy, giving patients at Athletico’s facilities across the country full access to CareCredit’s health, wellness, and personal care credit card.

This agreement—which marks CareCredit’s first foray into the orthopedic rehabilitation and physical therapy arenas—gives Athletico’s patients more options to pay for deductibles, co-payments, and out-of-pocket costs associated with physical therapy services, according to a media release from CareCredit.

“Physical therapy and rehabilitation services are an important part of the care equation, which is why we are proud to sign our first large physical therapy agreement with Athletico,” says Dave Fasoli, chief executive officer of CareCredit, in the release.

“Building strong, healthy communities requires a team of outstanding healthcare professionals and service relationships,” states Mark Kaufman, CEO and president of Athletico, per the release. “Our new partnership with CareCredit allows us to fulfill our mission of delivering exceptional treatment in a manner that is both flexible and accessible for our patients.”
