CareCredit Extends Enrollment to Nurse Practitioners in States Allowing Independent Practice

“AmSpa is grateful to be working with CareCredit on expanding their program to support independent practice NPs.”

CareCredit is a health, wellness and beauty credit card dedicated to helping millions of patients get the care they want or need by offering promotional financing options. CareCredit has 11.7 million cardholders with more than $39 billion in available credit, which helps users attract new patients. Now accepted at more than 250,000 locations nationwide, the CareCredit credit card allows cardholders to make convenient monthly payments for aesthetic procedures that help them achieve the look they want. If approved, patients can use their card for additional procedures and skin care products medical spas provide (subject to credit approval; minimum monthly payments required; see for details).

“We’re excited to expand our provider network to include NPs with independent practice medical spas and partner with AmSpa to help these medical spa providers bring the benefits of CareCredit to their practices and grow their businesses by offering an easy way for patients to access more treatments and services,” says Jill Frattallone, General Manager, CareCredit Cosmetic.

AmSpa is advising CareCredit about which states allow NPs to practice independently and whether the association would recommend CareCredit offer their credit card to NP-owned establishments.

“AmSpa is grateful to be working with CareCredit on expanding their program to support independent practice NPs,” says AmSpa Founder and CEO, Alex R. Thiersch, JD. “We anticipate that NPs will continue to grow their practices at a fast rate, and we give kudos to CareCredit for being proactive and dynamic enough to adjust in these changing times.”

CareCredit has also announced a new offer that is available exclusively to AmSpa Members: They can get started at no enrollment cost, they will receive 20% off promotional merchant fees on purchases of $200 or more, and they’ll get a listing in the Acceptance Locator on, which receives, on average, more than 1.5 million searches per month from patients looking for practices that accept CareCredit (according to the January – December 2020 Omniture Web Report).
