Increase treatment plan conversion with buy now pay later

Published on : 10/6/2020

National Dental Plan (NDP) allows practices to offer patients a buy now, pay later solution for treatment.  As we come out of COVID-19 and the financial impact it has had on everyday Australians, NDP gives your patient a no interest ever option to start or complete much-needed dental treatment.

So when can you offer your patients National Dental Plan (NDP)?

National Dental Plan can be offered to patients at various stages of their treatment

  1.  Beginning – offered to patients when presenting the treatment plan
  2.  Middle – offered to patients who require financial support to complete treatment
  3.  End – offered to patients in debt for previous treatment so they can pay in instalments

Family members can apply on behalf of a patient

If the patient does not meet the payment plan criteria, then a family member who does meet the criteria can apply for them on their behalf.

Patients can choose portions of treatment to pay via NDP

The patient does not need to commit to paying the total treatment plan value via NDP; they can select the items to include, e.g. Crowns, and the items to be paid via another method.

The Minimum Deposit Amount can be Increased

Patients must pay a minimum 20% deposit, unless they are categoried as VIP of Humm or a discounted promotion applies to them. The deposit amount can be increased at the practices discretion. Additionally, patients may opt to pay more upfront to reduce repayments.
