We take both the patient and the pet owners' needs in consideration when developing treatment plans, the reality is that the clinic must be managed as a financially healthy business. This is the "hard side" to the daily rewards of providing quality veterinary services to our clients.
The Chisholm Trail Pet Clinic is not subsidized by any governmental or private grant monies. We do not have a non-profit organization status. Our supplies are not donated. As a privately owned small business, we pay both property and income taxes, and receive utility service from the City of Bowie at the standard commercial rate.
We are staffed by professional individuals who are paid for their work and then contribute their earnings to our local economy.
Payment is expected in full when services are rendered.
Extended billing, delayed billing, and payment plans are not offered.
Our clinic collects payment in the form of cash, personal check, credit/debit card, and CareCredit and/or ScratchPay.
Your personal check is welcome here with valid identification. If you make payment by check you are agreeing to a contractual agreement. If your check is returned, it may be re-presented electronically or by paper draft and you will be responsible for any and all penalties, costs and incidental damages, collection cost and taxes on any check that is returned. A return fee will be charged on any item that is returned by your bank and these fees may be collected electronically or by paper draft. A list of state allowed return check fees is available at www.vericheck.com or you can call 404-872-4585.
With CareCredit you can finance 100% of your pet's healthcare and there are no upfront costs, annual fees, nor pre-payment penalties.
CareCredit offers a full range of payment plans so you can choose the one that works best for you. With their "No Interest Payment Plans" there are no interest charges if you pay your balance in full within the specified time period. Monthly payments can be as low as 3% of your balance. For treatment plans from $1,000 to over $25,000, CareCredit offers 24, 36, and 48 month plan options with low monthly payments available.
Scratchpay provides simple, transparent payment plans for financing costs associated with veterinary care, dental work, vision and medical costs - faster and with higher approval rates that won't affect your credit score. Scratchpay helps you care first and pay later. It is not a credit card and there are no hidden fees, no prepayment penalties, no deferred interest, and no surprises.
Simply apply for a payment plan from your phone or desktop or by clicking the Scratchpay logo above, check your rate and choose your payment plan, and get the care your pet needs!
Pet owners with a pet insurance plan generally have a deductible amount that they pay for services rendered before coverage starts. After that, they pay their veterinarian directly, then submit their bills to their pet insurer for reimbursement. There are a number of options for insurance for your pet. It is beyond our scope of expertise to advise any client as to their best option of coverage. Additional information about ASPCA Pet Health Insurance is available in clinic.
