Do pharmacies accept Care Credit?

Q. Can I use my Care Credit card at my pharmacy to pay for prescriptions or other medical needs?

Adam answers:

That depends on the pharmacy. You can use Care Credit at Walgreens pharmacies, Walmart pharmacies, Sam’s Club pharmacies, Rite Aid pharmacies, and Duane Reade pharmacies. If you go to another pharmacy, no.

Care Credit initially existed as a way for you to make payments to a medical provider over time instead of all at once, and is still most often used for higher-cost elective procedures. While it was not initially intended to be a medical credit card in general, it is definitely expanding its goals, with the major pharmacies mentioned above now accepting Care Credit. However, other pharmacies will still not accept it to fill a prescription or for purchasing medical supplies.

(Veterinarians that directly sell prescriptions for pet care MAY also accept Care Credit, however; check with your vet.)
