Convenient Payment Options & Help with Pet Insurance at RBVH
At Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, we are frequently asked about the costs of an office call. Charges vary based on the type of visit; please ask for specifics when you make your pet's appointment.
Please note: Appointments are never required for emergency visits. At the time of such visits, the emergency department staff reviews all necessary services, options, and costs with you.
The veterinarians and staff members of Red Bank Veterinary Hospital understand you want what is in the best interest of your pet. Sometimes the costs associated with these decisions can be difficult to understand. That is why we work to provide you with several options that will benefit your pet, allow for optimum quality of life, and enable you to feel comfortable with your choice.
To give you a better sense of the costs involved in treating your pet’s medical condition, your veterinarian will develop a health care plan. This plan includes an approximate range of charges that may be incurred for services and procedures while your pet is hospitalized.
While our hospital does not offer in-house payment plans, we do accept the following forms of payment:
- Personal checks
- Travelers checks
- Debit cards
- Money orders
- All major credit cards—Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Card
Red Bank Veterinary Hospital accepts CareCredit. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed for the health and wellness needs of you, your family, and your pets. It helps you pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by medical insurance by extending special financing options to qualified applicants.
While we still require you to pay your medical bill directly to Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, we are happy to help with any of the necessary paperwork that will streamline the reimbursement process from your insurance provider.
